BRAGA V BELENENSES
A late goal from Sporar granted SC Braga all three points against SC Farense, but Carlos Carvalhal's men didn't impress. They will need to improve in order stay in the race for Champions League football next season.
Belenenses SAD paid the price for poor defending last time out up against Boavista. They're only four points away from the relegation zone and face the very real prospect of no points from this match away to Braga.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
ANKARAGUCU V GENCLERBIRLIGI
Ankaragucu held Konyaspor to a draw last time out. At this stage in the season, accumulating away points is key for teams that are fighting for survival. Once again, they created quite a few number of chances, especially through Paintsil and Borven, who was used as a winger. Against Genclerbirligi, whose fullbacks struggle against quick wingers, they are likely to create even more.
Genclerbirligi were held to a draw by Erzurumspor last time out. Had they won that home game, they would not only have climbed out of the relegation zone but also opened the gap with one of their fellow relegation contenders. So, that was a massive opportunity missed by Bizati's side. What is worse, they were outplayed by one of the weakest sides in the league and had their guests been slightly more clinical, Genclerbirligi wouldn't even get a point.
This is the most intense Ankara derby to be played in years as two of the most established clubs in the league are fighting for survival. Ankaragucu are slight favorites.
Prediction: Both teams to score
