Saturday's Primeira Liga predictions including Porto vs. Santa Clara

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Primeira Liga fixtures - Rio Ave vs. Gil Vicente and Porto vs. Santa Clara.

Gil Vicente will look to continue their rise away from the bottom of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday, as they travel to the Estadio dos Arcos to take on Rio Ave.

After back-to-back wins, Os Gilistas have moved out of the bottom three and up to 12th spot, while the visitors sit in ninth place thanks to a three-game unbeaten run.

We say: Rio Ave 1-2 Gil Vicente

While the international break can often slow a side's momentum, we still feel that Gil Vicente look to be heading in the right direction, and could record another impressive victory on Saturday.

Rio Ave are in danger of suffering from having very little to play for in the league, and they could be outworked by a Gil Vicente side who will be desperate to keep moving away from the drop zone.

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

Porto vs. Santa Clara (Saturday, 8.30pm)

Porto welcome Santa Clara to the Estadio do Dragao on Saturday, as they look to reduce the gap between themselves and Sporting Lisbon at the top of the Primeira Liga table.

After a strong run of four wins from their last five league games, Sergio Conceicao's side now sit 10 points behind the league leaders, while Santa Clara have climbed back up to seventh spot thanks to an upturn in form prior to the international break.

We say: Porto 2-0 Santa Clara

With the chance to put a small amount of pressure on Sporting Lisbon, we expect Porto to come into this game desperate for a win, and their quality should see them to a fairly routine home victory.

With the league's best attack combining with a resilient defensive line, Conceicao's side should have more than enough to get over the line at the Estadio do Dragao, as they have no more room to drop points in their pursuit of the top spot.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
