Porto can move to within a point of leaders Benfica if they win at Nacional on Saturday night.

Benfica do not play until Monday evening when they entertain Estoril at the Estadio de Luz, allowing Porto to apply some pressure as they look to retain their Primeira Liga crown.

Pacos de Ferreira can continue to stake their claim for third spot with a win against Sporting CP but will not be in for an easy ride, with Sporting having won four of their last five games in the league.
Braga will be confident of a win going into their game against lowly Moreirense on Friday, with the hosts having won only four times all season.
However, Augusto Inacio’s men will take confidence from the fact that Braga have not been in excellent form recently, winning only twice in the last five games, both by a goal to nil.
Basement outfit Beira-Mar can jump up to 14th place provided they get a win against Maritimo and Olhanense do not take three points from their fixture at home to Rio Ave on Sunday.
Academica can leapfrog their opponents on Sunday, Vitoria Setubal, with a win at the Estadio de Bonfim, while a resurgent Vitoria Guimaraes will be looking to keep their impressive form going.
The hosts have lost just once in six games and face 12th-placed Gil Vicente at the Estadio D. Afons Henriques.
