Valente was the hero for Vitoria Guimaraes, with his header lifting the home side to a 1-0 win over Sporting Braga in the Minho derby on Friday.

The fixture is one of the most eagerly anticipated in Portugal and fifth-placed Guimaraes claimed bragging rights in front of 14,000 spectators at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques.

After a scoreless opening half, Valente, who returned to the starting line-up following his one-match suspension, rose highest from a corner to head Guimaraes into a 66th-minute lead – an advantage the hosts never relinquished.

The victory saw Guimaraes move four points clear of sixth-placed Belenenses, who face league leaders Benfica on Saturday.

Braga remain fourth with 53 points following a first loss in four games.
