Long Ball Futebol podcast: Boavista on top and upsets in the Algarve

This week Barney & Albert discuss all the action from Jornada 5 of the 2023/24 Primeira Liga season, starting with the unlikely league leaders Boavista, who continued their excellent run of form with a 4-1 win over Chaves. Chaves fell to their 5th consecutive loss and as a result disposed of manager José Gomes.

There was joy for the Algarve sides against teams from the Minho region as Farense beat Braga in Faro, before Portimonense got an unlikely away win against Vitória in Guimarães. The big 3 clubs all won, Sporting putting on their best display of the season against Moreirense, Porto switching things up against Estrela, and Benfica cruising to another routine win against Vizela.
