Portugal. Ranked 6th and no surprise – strong generation of player, successful Benfica and especially FC Porto. Which were the main protagonists of this season, as expected and as it was for a long time now. Benfica played second fiddle, though.

Braganca – 10th with 39 points.
Three teams fought for the two top position, but the outcome and
Famalicao ended 1st with 53 points, but winning on better goal-difference. It was short-lived victory – the club was found guilty of corruption and expelled to Third Division. Still, they remained group champions of this season.
Leixoes finished 2nd with 53 points and was promoted to top flight.
Fafe lost the championship battle – 3rd with 53 points. But the expulsion of Famalicao made them happy – they were promoted to First Division instead of Famalicao.
UR Mirense was one of the unfortunate – 17th with 32 points and relegated.

Beira Mar finished 2nd with 53 points and promoted.
Academico Viseu won the group with 55 points and also promoted.
