The 2-2 Lisboa Navigators head to Cascais, Portugal to take on the 1-1 Cascais Crusaders in one of the two matchups this weekend in the Portuguese League of American Football.
After opening the season with two straight wins against the Braga Warriors (42-12) and Algarve Sharks (36-6), Lisboa has dropped two in a row. First, they were unceremoniously dumped by the Porto Mutts 33-8 and then lost a tough one to crosstown rivals, the Lisboa Devils 28-20.
Cascais also lost a tough one to the Devils, 19-15 but bounced back to beat the Mutts 31-27.
With Portugal running on an unbalanced schedule, the standings won’t be aligned until the first week of April when all seven teams will have played more or less the same number of games.
These two teams met twice in 2018 with each taking a victory. Cascais prevailed over the Navigators 34-32 in the first game while Lisboa came out on top in the second, beating the Crusaders 19-14.
