Panini Futebol 2016

Panini Futebol 2015-16 is the official sticker collection of the Portuguese Premier League (Liga Nos). The league has been expanded to 18 teams and thus the collection includes two more teams compared to last season. 
As in the previous album, the club badges are collected in a double page at the beginning of the album. These 18 special stickers are shining with the badge in relief. Then the teams are shown in alphabetical order, each displayed on two pages with a total of 19 stickers: the team photo, the coach and 17 players. The sticker of each player includes only the name, but more details (date of birth, position, previous club, etc.) are reported in the album.

The last part of the album includes three special sections: "Os Craques", "Top Aquisiçoes", and "Portugueses pelo mundo".
The first includes 18 stickers (one per team) of the most performing players of the league. These are normal stickers with players in action. Top Aquisiçoes includes 18 special stickers (shining and in relief) of the best new transfers of the league. There are 7 players of Porto, 5 of Sporting, 3 of Benfica, 1 of Braga, 1 of Belenenses, and 1 of Vitoria Guimaraes.  Among these Casillas, Mitroglou, Imbula, Raul Jimenez, Bryan Ruiz. The last section is "Portuguese in the world" and it includes 10 special shining stickers of the best Portuguese players playing abroad: André Gomes (Valencia), Bernardo Silva, Moutinho and Carvalho (Monaco), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Danny (Zenit), Nani (Fenerbahce), Pepe (Real Madrid), Tiago (Atletico Madrid) and Vierinha (Wolfsburg).
The album closes with the table of honour of the League and Cup of Portugal.

The back cover of the album

Panini released during the season update stickers for players that were transferred after the album was published in September. These stickers "bis" can be found in normal sticker packs. There are 30 "bis" stickers (see image below), among which important players like Nelson Semedo and Gonçalo Guedes (Benfica), Ruben Neves (Porto), Aquilani (Sporting), Sergio Conceiçao (coach of Vitoria Guimaraes).  As there is a sticker number behind these stickers it is possible to glue the stickers in correspondance of the substituted players (I suggest using the method provided by Panini for the Liga Este albums) or they can be kept in a separate folder. Unfortunately because of the early release of the album some important new "cracks" are missing, in particular Renato Sanches of Benfica (born in 1997)  followed already by the big European clubs.
