Saturday's Primeira Liga predictions including Benfica vs. Gil Vicente

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Primeira Liga fixtures, including Benfica vs. Gil Vicente.


Guimaraes vs. Santa Clara (Saturday, 3.30pm)

The sides in sixth and seventh place of the Primeira Liga table go head to head on Saturday, as Vitoria de Guimaraes welcome Santa Clara to the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques.

The hosts will be looking to end a run of five consecutive league defeats, while a 5-1 victory last time out has lifted Santa Clara to seventh spot, level on points with Saturday's opponents.

We say: Vitoria de Guimaraes 1-3 Santa Clara


The two sides come into this game in opposite runs of form, and we see Santa Clara sealing another victory following their dominant win last time out.

Despite Vitoria's quality, they have struggled to click in recent weeks, and look to be limping towards a poor end to the campaign.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Moreirense vs. Tondela (Saturday, 3.30pm)

In search of consecutive wins for the first time since February, Moreirense play host to Tondela at the Parque de Jogos Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Saturday.

The away side have the worst record on the road this term, having picked up just five points from their 13 games as a visiting team.

We say: Moreirense 2-1 Tondela


While the hosts have not necessarily been impressive at home this term, the visitors have been dismal on their travels, and we expect that trend to continue in this one with a narrow victory for the home side.

Benfica will look to record a seventh straight league victory on Saturday, when they welcome Gil Vicente to the Estadio da Luz.

As Aguias have moved back up third in the Primeira Liga table thanks to their strong league run, while the visitors have moved up to 10th spot courtesy of an upturn in form.

We say: Benfica 3-0 Gil Vicente


Benfica have managed to hit their best run of form this season in the last month, and we do not see Gil Vicente stopping them on Saturday.

As Aguias have looked formidable defensively and will look to see out another clean sheet, while their potent attacking line should have more than enough to fire them to another dominant win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Belenenses vs. Maritimo (Saturday, 6.00pm)

This weekend's key game at the bottom of the Primeira Liga table takes place in Lisbon on Saturday, as Belenenses welcome Maritimo to the Estadio Nacional.

Maritimo lifted themselves off the foot of the table with a crucial 1-0 win over Farense last time out, while Saturday's hosts sit just two places and three points ahead in 14th spot.

We say: Belenenses 1-1 Maritimo


With a solid defensive outfit hosting a revitalised side under a new manager, this game could definitely go either way.

On this occasion, we predict a draw as both sides will be extremely fearful of a defeat which could see them fall further towards the threat of relegation

Rio Ave vs. Braga (Saturday, 8.30pm)

With their Primeira Liga title hopes now hanging by a thread, Braga travel to the Estadio dos Arcos to face off against Rio Ave on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the hosts are just four points ahead of the relegation zone, and they will be looking to put some daylight between themselves and the bottom three.

We say: Rio Ave 1-3 Braga


Only the current top two teams have picked up more away victories than Braga this term, highlighting their impressive record on the road. We are backing the visitors to keep that good away form up with all three points in this one.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
