Thursday's Primeira Liga predictions including Belenenses vs. Porto

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's Primeira Liga fixtures, including Belenenses vs. Porto.

Farense vs. Santa Clara (Thursday, 3.00pm)

SC Farense host Santa Clara in the Primeira Liga on Thursday evening, hoping for a win to move them off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Santa Clara are looking to secure their third successive league win and move closer to the top six.

We say: SC Farense 1-2 Santa Clara

After two victories in the last week, Santa Clara will come into this game with a level of optimism and confidence that they can secure their third win in a row against a Farense outfit at the foot of the table. The hosts have performed well on home soil so far this campaign, but the visitors should have enough quality to seal a narrow victory on Thursday.

Belenenses welcome Porto to the Estadio do Restelo on Thursday evening, with the hosts aiming to bounce back from last weekend's Primeira Liga defeat.

Meanwhile, the visitors have put together an impressive run of form which is keeping them in touch with title challengers and current table toppers Sporting Lisbon.

We say: Belenenses 0-2 Porto

Belenenses have claimed nine of their 15 Primeira Liga points on home soil this campaign and will believe that they can cause an upset against the reigning champions. However, with Porto in such impressive form, there is little to suggest that Thursday's match will be anything other than a routine away win.

Braga vs. Portimonense (Thursday, 9.00pm)

Braga travel to Portimonense on Thursday night as they look to record a third consecutive league win after the Archbishops moved up to third in the Primeira Liga table on Monday.

Meanwhile, the visitors will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Boavista in their last match, a result which lifted their relegation rivals off the foot of the table.

We say: Braga 2-0 Portimonense

We can see Braga securing a fairly comfortable win in this game as they look to keep pace with the Primeira Liga's top two. The two arrivals from Sporting should inject some energy into a side with some real momentum coming into a game against a struggling Portimonense team who lack attacking threat.

Famalicao vs. Moreirense (Thursday, 9.30pm)

Famalicao play host to Moreirense on Thursday evening in Primeira Liga action, with the visitors sitting seven places above Famalicao in the league table, despite being only four points better off than Thursday's opponents.

Moreirense will be looking for a quick recovery after they were thrashed 4-0 by Braga on Monday night.

We say: Famalicao 1-1 Moreirense

We can see this being a very close encounter between two sides struggling for form. While the visitors may possess the slightly better squad, especially after the departure of Lameiras from Famalicao, the introduction of manager Silas could breathe new life into the hosts as they look to avoid relegation, and the change at the top could give the side a boost. We see the teams sharing the points in this game.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
