Sunday was a memorable day for the team. After a 2-0 victory at home in Bonfim Stadium, against Belenenses, with goals from Jubal Rocha and Bruno Pires, Vitoria de Setubal stamped their stay in the also called "Liga Nos".

With this score, the team reached 34 points, qualifying in 16th position.

Thus, Portimonense (17th place with 33 points) and Aves (18th/17 pts) were relegated from the league.

The tournament was won by FC Porto with 82 points, against 77 from Sport Lisboa e Benfica, in second position.

Involved in bad results, Lito Vidigal guided the team in the last four rounds, being the fourth coach in the 2019/20 season. Sandro Mendes was between the first and eighth round, Albert Meyong between the ninth and 11th, and Júlio Velázquez did it between the 12th and 29th round.

The 50-year-old former national team coach takes charge of the Setúbal team for the second time. In 2018/19, the coach was replaced by Sandro Mendes, after the 18th round with a balance of five wins, four draws and nine losses.

Angolan Fábio Abreu was among the top scorers in the Championship:

The 27-year-old striker finished 5th in the scoring charts with 13 clean sheets in 34 games.
