Saturday's Primeira Liga predictions including Sporting Lisbon vs. Portimonense

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Primeira Liga fixtures, including Sporting Lisbon vs. Portimonense.

Belenenses vs. Nacional (Saturday, 3.30pm)

Belenenses host Nacional on Saturday, with both sides looking to move up the Primeira Liga table, and further away from the relegation zone.

The hosts will be looking to stretch their league unbeaten run to four matches, while Nacional suffered their first league defeat in five games last time out, and will be in search of a win at the Estadio Nacional.

We say: Belenenses 0-1 Nacional

As is common with Belenenses, we see this being a game of few goals, and we think the visitors have enough to edge it narrowly, thanks to their stronger attacking quality.

While Belenenses have been very resilient defensively this season, we expect Nacional to find a way through, while the hosts' attack does not pose much of a threat to Freire's side.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Gil Vicente vs. Santa Clara (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Gil Vicente will be hoping to escape the Primeira Liga bottom three on Saturday, when they welcome Santa Clara to the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos.

Meanwhile, the visitors will be looking to return to winning ways, after they suffered their first league defeat in five games last time out.

We say: Gil Vicente 0-2 Santa Clara

We can see the visitors recording a fairly comfortable victory here, taking advantage of a Gil Vicente side who will be lacking confidence after a disappointing loss last time out.

Although Soares will demand a reaction following the heavy defeat to Portimonense on Sunday, we do not think they have enough to change their fortunes with a win over a strong Santa Clara side on Friday, and predict a victory for the visitors.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Sporting Lisbon vs. Portimonense (Saturday, 8.30pm)

Sporting Lisbon will be looking to increase their lead to 13 points at the top of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday when they welcome Portimonense to the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The league leaders stretched their winning run to seven in all competitions last time out, while Portimonense recorded a victory of their own, defeating Gil Vicente 4-1.

We say: Sporting Lisbon 2-0 Portimonense

Although the visitors have looked much improved recently, we can only see a home win happening here, with Sporting Lisbon continuing their march towards the league title.

Their strong defence should be able to contain the threat posed by Portimonense, while the dangerous attacking combination of Paulinho, Tomas and Goncalves should cause the away side plenty of problems, ultimately resulting in a fairly comfortable win for the Leoes.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
