Santa Clara vs. Famalicao (Saturday, 3.30pm)
Both sides head into the game fresh off the back of progressing into the fourth round of the Taca de Portugal and will be looking to build on their respective performances.
We say: Santa Clara 1-2 Famalicao
Famalicao have been the surprise side of the new season and not for the right reasons. After securing a ninth-placed finish last season, they currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table after eight rounds of matches. Santa Clara have not performed significantly better either as they find themselves just three points and three places above the visitors following a similarly shaky start to the season. Looking at recent meetings between the sides, we are tipping Famalicao to come away with a narrow win in this one.
Tondela vs. Porto (Saturday, 6.00pm)
The hosts, on the other hand, head into the game on an impressive three-game winning streak and will be seeking to kick on and move into the top half of the Primeira Liga standings.
We say: Tondela 0-2 Porto
Tondela have enjoyed a rejuvenation in recent weeks and will fancy their chances of ending their poor run against the visitors. However, they face the stern test of going up against a Porto side who are unbeaten in the league since a 3-2 loss against Pacos de Ferreira back in October 2020. We are backing Porto to carry on the momentum from their Champions League win and come away with all three points in this one.
Sporting Lisbon vs. Moreirense (Saturday, 8.30pm)
Fresh off the back of an emphatic victory over Besiktas in the Champions League, Sporting Lisbon resume their Primeira Liga title defence as they welcome Moreirense to the Estadio Jose Alvalade on Saturday.
The visitors snatched a last-gasp goal to force a share of the spoils when the sides last met back in April and will be looking to replicate that performance and keep their fine form going.
We say: Sporting Lisbon 3-0 Moreirense
Moreirense head into the game in rejuvenated form as they appear to have hit their stride after a rough start to the season. While they will be looking to keep the ball rolling, they face a rampant Sporting Lisbon side who last lost a league home game in January 2020. We are tipping the reigning champions to claim all three points unscathed in this one.
