Speaking to ANGOP, last Friday, about the interruption of the competition due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the club's administrative director, Ezequias Domingos, said he disagrees with the idea of ​​granting the title through administrative decision, as it is also in question which teams will be relegated to the second division.

In his view, if the pandemic gets overcome, the solution would be for the Angolan Football Federation (FAF) to define the month of May as a period of sports recovery, June and July for the end of Girabola2019/20 and Angola League Cup.

Proceeding in this way, the month of August would be for holidays, September for pre-season and October would be the start of the new season 2020/21.

Another solution, according to the interviewee, would be to shorten the players' vacation, taking into account the African Confederation's calendar, if the state of emergency exceeds the month of May.

When there are six rounds left to the end of the championship, Desportivo da Huíla are fourth with 38 points, while Petro de Luanda lead with 54, followed by 1º de Agosto with 51 and one delayed game.

After the administrative disqualification of 1º de Maio de Benguela, two more teams, among the last five, will be relegated.

These are Santa Rita de Cássia (15th/16 points), Cuando Cubango FC (14th/20 points), Ferrovia do Huambo (13th/20points), Sporting de Cabinda (12th/21points) and Progresso Sambizanga (11th/22 points).
