Portugal's Primeira Liga is set to restart this Thursday with two matches, followed by a consistent schedule of 1 to 3 matches per day thereafter. The title race restarts with a one-point lead of FC Porto over SL Benfica.

The replanning was marked by disagreements between the clubs and the league, and among the clubs themselves, over topics such as the approved stadiums, quarantine measures and TV broadcasts.
