With Benfica’s defeat in Braga, only PSG and Napoli have the status of invincible teams in the top ten European football leagues.
Benfica’s defeat in Braga (3-0) spelled the end of the eagles’ invincibility in the main Portuguese football championship, a competition where there are no longer invincible teams.
Roger Schmidt’s team was the only one in the League still without defeat (12 wins and a draw, this one with Vitória de Guimarães, in the first 13 rounds), but fell and with a bang in the quarry, now having a five point advantage over FC Porto in the lead of the competition.
In the top ten European leagues, in addition to Portugal, there are no unbeatable teams in Germany, England, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Scotland and Austria. The exceptions are France, through PSG, and Italy, with Napoli.
As far as the French league is concerned, PSG, who lead the competition with seven points more than Lens, have 14 wins and two draws after 14 rounds. They only conceded draws against Monaco (1-1, on matchday four) and Stade de Reims (0-0, on the tenth round). This Sunday (19.45 hours), the Parisians visit precisely the runner-up.
In Italy, Napoli, who have been trying to regain the championship for 33 years, have won 13 and drawn two after 15 games. Luciano Spalletti’s team conceded draws with Fiorentina (0-0, in the third round) and with Lecce (1-1, in the following round). The Neapolitans, who lead Serie A eight points ahead of AC Milan, next Tuesday visit Inter, fifth in the table.
