Saturday's Primeira Liga predictions including Sporting Lisbon vs. Vitoria Guimaraes

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


Pacos de Ferreira vs. Moreirense (Saturday, 3.30pm)

Pacos de Ferreira will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday when they host Moreirense who sit 11 points and three places below them in the Primeira Liga table.

The hosts have struggled for consistency in recent weeks, while Moreirense will be hoping to build on a three-game unbeaten run in the league to put pressure on the sides above them.

We say: Pacos de Ferreira 1-1 Moreirense


With the dust firmly settled on an impressive winning run for the hosts, we see these sides on a fairly level playing field at this stage of the season, largely down to the steady improvement of Moreirense.

Both sides possess fairly impressive combinations of defence and attack, and we see them splitting the points in a very close encounter on Saturday.

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

Santa Clara vs. Tondela (Saturday, 3.30pm)

Santa Clara welcome Tondela to the Estadio de Sao Miguel on Saturday, with seven points and three teams separating the sides in the middle of the Primeira Liga table.

The hosts will be looking to build on a win over Portimonense last time out, while Tondela will be hoping to bounce back from two consecutive league defeats.

We say: Santa Clara 1-1 Tondela


While Santa Clara do come into this game in a better run of form, we see the sides splitting the points as Tondela will be desperate for a positive result to help them feel more comfortable in the middle of the table.

The hosts do possess the attacking quality to pick up all three points, but we expect CDT Auriverdes to battle hard for a crucial away point.

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

Portimonense vs. Porto (Saturday, 6.00pm)

Porto will be looking to continue their pursuit of Sporting Lisbon at the top of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday when they travel to the Estadio Municipal de Portimao to take on Portimonense.

Sergio Conceicao's side will have their sights set on a third consecutive league victory, while the hosts will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Santa Clara last time out.

We say: Portimonense 0-2 Porto


The visitors come into this game in a good patch of form, and we see them having too much quality for Portimonense, even despite their recent upturn in form.

Os Dragoes cannot afford to lose any more ground on Sporting Lisbon, and we think that will drive them to build a strong winning run in the top flight, stretching that to three games with an away victory on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Sporting Lisbon will be looking to further strengthen their position at the top of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday when they welcome Vitoria de Guimaraes to the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The league leaders made it eight victories from their last nine league games with a home win over Tondela last time out, while Vitoria will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to strugglers Gil Vicente.

We say: Sporting Lisbon 2-1 Vitoria de Guimaraes


While the loss of Coates could be a big one for Sporting, we still fancy them to continue their strong run of form with another win on Saturday.

Vitoria do undoubtedly possess plenty of quality, but they do not look a coherent outfit at the moment, and that should lead to a defeat away at the ruthless league leaders.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
