César Peixoto has been complaining about the pitch of the City of Coimbra Stadium and League evaluations confirm: worse than that of Coimbra, only the Viseu and Azores lawns
Liga Portugal now offers turf status assessments for 1st and 2nd league matches, with ratings from one to five stars. In 36 “stages” analyzed, the Cidade de Coimbra Stadium has the third worst average: 2.96.
The pitch of the Sao Miguel Stadium in the Azores, home of Santa Clara, is the worst of the 36 professional pitches. It has 2.5 stars after two games played, and in the inaugural round – 2-0 defeat against Famalicão – had a score of only 1.81. For the match with Belenenses (0-0), matchday 3, it showed a clear evolution, scoring 3.19 in the evaluation.
In 35th place is the lawn of Estádio do Fontelo (2.93), home of Ac. Viseu, who scored three stars in matchday two against Briosa (0–0), but dropped to 2.86 in the last round in defeat by leaders Sp. Covilhã (1-3).
