    Round 4 will be played this weekend from Portugal's Primeira and we will enjoy some very interesting clashes.

     

    CD Aves - FC Famalicão

     

    On Saturday CD Aves will host FC Famalicão in search for an important win.

    Last season the away side played in Portugal's second league, which is very surprising considering their unbeaten start of the new season.

    • CD Aves's performance has been disappointing of late, as they have won just 1 of their 6 most recent Primeira clashes.
    • CD Aves have lost 5 of their last 6 league games.
    • FC Famalicão's last 3 Primeira matches, there have been under 2.5 goals.
    • FC Famalicão have been conceding an average of 0.50 goals in their away league matches.
    • Prediction: FC Famalicão @ 3.20

     

    Sporting CP - Rio Ave

     

    Sporting CP will face an easy obstacle on Saturday when they will play at home Rio Ave.

    The home side are the temporary league leaders, so they will try to resume on the top after this week's round.

    • Sporting CP are on an unbeaten run of 7 home games in their Primeira participation.
    • Sporting CP have defeated by 2+ goals Rio Ave in their last 3 encounters in the league.
    • Sporting CP are undefeated in 23 of their last 26 games against Rio Ave in Primeira.
    • Rio Ave have lost their last 5 matches against Sporting CP in Primeira.
    • Prediction: Sporting CP @ 1.37

     

    Sporting Braga - SL Benfica

     

    One rather interesting clash from this weekend will be the match between Sporting Braga and SL Benfica.

    Last time, SL Benfica were heavily beaten at home by FC Porto, which put some concerns about their upcoming performance.

    • Sporting Braga have suffered a defeat by SL Benfica in their 4 most recent home clashes with them (Primeira).
    • Sporting Braga have allowed at least one goal against SL Benfica in their 9 most recent home clashes in Primeira.
    • Benfica have won their last 10 away league games.
    • SL Benfica have won 8 of their last 10 league matches by margin of 2+ goals.
    • Prediction: SL Benfica @ 1.72

     

    FC Porto - Vitória Guimarães

     

    FC Porto will aim for another important win when they face at home the team of Vitória Guimarães.

    The away side's performance hasn't been bad as the team haven't conceded any losses from the start of the new season.

    • FC Porto have managed to win 6 consecutive home games in Primeira.
    • FC Porto have scored 1+ goals in their 13 most recent home clashes with Vitória Guimarães in Primeira.
    • Vitória Guimarães have conceded at least one goal in their last 11 away league games.
    • Vitória Guimarães have achieved just 1 wins of their last 7 away Primeira games.
    • Prediction: FC Porto @ 1.17
