Sporting can come away from rivals Benfica with a point

Benfica forward Pizzi
1 of 1

FreeSports, from 6.15pm Wednesday

Boavista v Braga 6.15pm
Braga were knocked out of the League Cup either side of Christmas but that competition is minor stuff compared to the real business of the Primeira Liga and the fourth-placed visitors can see off Boavista.

It's been a decent campaign for Braga, who are through to the knockout stages of the Europa League, and can follow Sporting and Porto by winning at Boavista.

Recommendation
Braga
1pt 15-13 Ladbrokes

Key stat
Boavista's seven home league games have produced just 16 goals.

Benfica v Sporting 9.30pm
The big matches in Portugal this season have both finished 0-0 - when Sporting hosted Porto and then when Benfica went to the league leaders and this first Lisbon derby of the term could be equally tight.

Benfica, outclassed in the Champions League, are not as strong as in previous campaigns which gives Sporting a reasonable chance of taking something against their arch-rivals.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 23-10 Betfred

Key stat
Sporting are unbeaten in the league this season.
