Leaders Sporting Lisbon play host to Rio Ave on Friday evening looking to extend their unbeaten record in Primeira Liga to 14 matches.

Meanwhile, the visitors head into this contest having ended a lengthy winless streak with a dominant victory over Portimonense, moving the club back into mid-table.

We say: Sporting Lisbon 2-0 Rio Ave

On the back of their recent league win, Rio Ave will be confident of causing an upset with little pressure on their shoulders. However, despite the quick turnaround for Sporting after their cup defeat, we expect the home side to get back on track in their search for silverware.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Porto vs. Benfica (Friday, 9.00pm)

Porto and Benfica square off in Primeira Liga on Friday evening with the teams only separated by goal difference in the standings.

The Portuguese giants, who sit in second and third position respectively, are four points adrift of unbeaten leaders Sporting Lisbon.

We say: Porto 2-1 Benfica

For these two clubs, this is their most important game of the season, and we expect strong performance from both sides. However, Porto will take confidence from their recent cup victory over their rivals, and the home side could prevail from a back-and-forth contest on Friday night.

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