Friday's Primeira Liga predictions including SC Farense vs. Sporting Lisbon

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Friday's Primeira Liga fixtures - Boavista vs. Pacos de Ferreira and SC Farense vs. Sporting Lisbon.

This weekend's round of Primeira Liga fixtures kicks off in the city of Porto on Friday evening, as Boavista play host to Pacos de Ferreira.

After two important results, the hosts moved out of the bottom two of the Primeira Liga table, while the away side sit comfortably in fifth spot despite a dip in form in recent weeks.

We say: Boavista 2-0 Pacos de Ferreira

Boavista undoubtedly have far more to play for in the league, and we see that extra desire, combined with the hit that Os Castores' confidence has taken, leading them to another crucial victory on Friday.

The visitors will be wounded from the 5-0 thrashing last time out, while Boavista have shown major progress in recent weeks, combining a solid back three and an impressive forward line, and we see them taking advantage of a weakened Pacos de Ferreira side to pick up three points.

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

Sporting Lisbon will look to stretch their lead at the top of the Primeira Liga table on Friday, when they travel to take on SC Farense.

After two consecutive league draws, the gap between the league leaders and second-placed Porto has been cut to six points, while the hosts now sit three points adrift of safety at the opposite end of the division.

We say: SC Farense 0-2 Sporting Lisbon

The recent draws should come as a shock to Sporting Lisbon, who have seen their standards slip slightly in the past few weeks, and we see those results triggering a strong comeback, as the league leaders desperately look to keep hold of the top spot.

Amorim's side should have more than enough to break down a fairly weak Farense defence, while they will be confident of securing another clean sheet if they can deal with the threat of Gauld in the final third.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
