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

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

Farense vs. Belenenses (Saturday, 3.30pm)

A crucial game takes place at the bottom end of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday, as SC Farense welcome Belenenses to the Estadio de Sao Luis.

While Farense did recently lift themselves off the foot of the table, they now sit in 15th spot level on points with Famalicao in the automatic relegation zone, while Belenenses sit three places ahead but only three points above the drop zone.

We say: SC Farense 1-0 Belenenses

We expect the trend of Belenenses games being low scoring to continue in this game, and we see the hosts just edging them on Saturday.

The return of Gauld will be a major boost for Os Leoes de Faro, and they should have just enough to break down the solid back line of Belenenses, while their own defence should not be too threatened.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Benfica vs. Boavista (Saturday, 6.00pm)

Benfica will be looking to break back into the top three of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday, when they welcome Boavista to the Estadio da Luz.

As Aguias come into this game having won their last two league matches, while Boavista recorded a crucial victory of their own last time out, beating Famalicao to move out of the relegation zone.

We say: Benfica 2-0 Boavista

We see Benfica extending their good run of form with another victory here, thanks to improvements in both their defensive solidity and attacking threat.

While Boavista have vastly improved in recent weeks, we see this being a step too far for As Panteras, and expect them to fall short at the Estadio da Luz.

Santa Clara vs. Portimonense (Saturday, 6.00pm)

Portimonense will be looking to continue their rise up the Primeira Liga table on Saturday, when they travel to the Estadio de Sao Miguel to take on eighth-placed Santa Clara.

The visitors have enjoyed an upturn in form recently, seeing them rise up to 11th spot, while Santa Clara will be hoping to bounce back from a narrow defeat to Sporting Lisbon last time out.

We say: Santa Clara 1-1 Portimonense

Thanks to Portimonense's recent resurgence, these sides come into the game on a fairly level playing field, and we cannot split them.

While Santa Clara have shown themselves to be a fairly solid defensive outfit, the exciting attacking options of Portimonense should be able to break that down, and we see the sides sharing the points in what will be a very tight encounter.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Tondela vs. Sporting Lisbon (Saturday, 8.30pm)

Sporting Lisbon will be looking to further strengthen their position at the top of the Primeira Liga table on Saturday, when they travel to the Estadio Joao Cardoso to take on Tondela.

The visitors come into this game off the back of a narrow 2-1 win over Santa Clara, while Tondela will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-0 away defeat to Portimonense last time out.

We say: Tondela 0-2 Sporting Lisbon

Looking at their performance levels this campaign, it is difficult to predict anything other than a Sporting Lisbon victory in any game that they play, despite Tondela's recent improvements.

Their fierce combination of attack and defence should see them to an away victory here, as we do not see a way that the hosts will break down Amorim's men, while only Porto have managed to keep a clean sheet against the league leaders in Primeira Liga action this season.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
