Without confinement, Académica will, tomorrow, go to Seixal to face Benfica B (16H00), in a game of the 16th round of the 2nd League.
It takes two hours and 20 minutes to travel on the A1, to the Academia dos incarnados. A trip that is far from being a tour for Rui Borges's men, but in which the students want to continue to nail down, in the forefront towards the division climb.
The reds, who recently changed coaches, had a new “breath” on Veríssimo's return.
In Veríssimo's first game, at home, against Oliveirense, the coach who finished last season at the head of the red team thrashed 4-0.
The match of the last day did not go so well for the coach, nor for the team, who let themselves be tied in Covilhã, in the last game of the match (1-1).
In any case, Veríssimo has not lost since he took over the team.
The former central defender, who represented Académica in the 1997/1998 and 1998/1999 seasons, has had five games for the Red B team in his main coaching career (three defeats in 2018/2019; one win and one draw this season) and five in the main team (three wins, one draw and one loss), last season. He will face Académica for the first time.
