Player to watch: Ricardo Batista, the Casa Pia keeper will need to be at his best this season as he will be peppered all season long with shots. Batista was named the goalie of the year in the second division last seaon and is one of reasons the club is where they are this season.


Outlook: Casa Pia is the feel good story of the season already as the small Lisbon district club makes their return to the top flight after more then 80 years but it looks to be a one and done for the minnows named after a children's charity.
