Sunday's Primeira Liga predictions including Benfica vs. Moreirense

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Primeira Liga fixtures, including Benfica vs. Moreirense.

Estrela Amadora vs. Rio Ave (Sunday, 3.30pm)

Two sides who could do well with a win go head to head on Sunday as Estrela Amadora play host to Rio Ave at the Estadio Jose Gomes in round 29 of the Primeira Liga on Sunday.

The Vilacondenses head into the weekend unbeaten in each of their last four games against the home side since a 2-0 loss in January 2009 and will be looking to extend this dominant run.

We say: Estrela Amadora 1-1 Rio Ave

Estrela and Rio Ave find themselves scrambling for points at the wrong end of the table and Sunday's result could prove pivotal in their battle against the drop. We predict both sides will take a cautious approach to this one and cancel out each other's efforts.

Arouca vs. Boavista (Sunday, 6.00pm)

Arouca set out in search of a third consecutive victory on Sunday when they go head to head with Boavista at the Estadio Municipal de Arouca.

Having suffered a 4-0 thrashing in December's reverse fixture, Os Axadrezados will head into the weekend looking to get one over the hosts and end their three-match winless run.

We say: Arouca 2-0 Boavista

While Boavista will be looking to find their feet this weekend, they take on a spirited Arouca side who have been rock-solid at home in recent weeks. We predict the Arouquenses will pick up where they left off against Braga and come away with another comfortable victory.

Portimonense vs. Casa Pia (Sunday, 6.00pm)

The action continues in round 28 of the Portuguese Primeira Liga as Portimonense and Casa Pia go head to head at the Estadio Municipal de Portimao on Sunday.

While the Os Gansos continue their push for a top-half finish, the hosts will be looking to pick up consecutive league wins for the first time this season and move out of the relegation zone.

We say: Portimonense 2-1 Casa Pia

Buoyed by their huge win over Chaves, Portimonense will head into the weekend with renewed belief as they look to pull clear of the relegation zone. The Alvinegros' home advantage should give them an extra edge here and we see them coming away with a narrow victory in front of their home supporters.

Title-hunting Benfica play host to sixth-placed Moreirense at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on Sunday evening in the Primeira Liga.

The hosts are four points behind league leaders Sporting Lisbon, albeit Sporting do have a game in hand, while the visitors are in sixth place, 13 points behind the European places and 17 points above the relegation zone.

We say: Benfica 2-1 Moreirense

Benfica will be coming into this one looking to bounce back after a disappointing stoppage-time defeat to title rivals Sporting Lisbon, and they are yet to lose at home this season.

Moreirense have performed well against Benfica in recent matchups, drawing all of the last three meetings, but they have failed to win this match since 2018.
