Comentário da Jornada:

O Porto derrotou a Académica, em Coimbra, e está muito próximo de poder repetir o título de Campeão alcançado na época passada. O Sporting está em ascenção e derrotou copiosamente o Marítimo, o que o golo mais rápido do campeonato, também ajudou, naturalmente. O outro grande, o Benfica parece em queda e vamos ver amanhã como se comporta com o Braga, no jogo que encerra a jornada.

A luta pela manutenção ganhou nesta jornada contornos diferentes a prometer grande e brava luta, extensiva a mais equipas do que aquelas que há pouco tempo esperávamos. Com efeito, o excepcional triunfo do Desportivo das Aves na Madeira frente ao Nacional e o triunfo do Beira-Mar, também forasteiro e face ao concorrente directo Vitória de Setúbal, veio trazer problemas à Académica e ao Estrela da Amadora, este perdedor em Belém frente a um Belenenses forte candidato à obtenção do 4º. lugar.

Naval-Paços de Ferreira e Boavista-União de Leiria acabaram com empates o que não aquece nem arrefece as aspirações destas equipas, mas que demonstram a incapacidade do Boavista em subir na classificação (rei dos empates está em 11º a três pontos do sétimo) e mantém o Paços de Ferreira num excepcional 6º. lugar que permite acesso à Uefa.
