Braga beat Vitoria Setubal 4-1; Guimaraes upset Rio Ave
Braga 4 – Vitoria Setubal 1 (Liga Sagres, January 20, 2013) Marcio Mossoro had Braga in front in the opening minute and Custodio Castro doubled the advantage on the stroke of halftime. Ruben Amorim added a third 10 minutes after the break, and although Jorginho Sousa got one back for the visitors in the 87th minute, Ruben Micael replied immediately with Braga’s fourth. The only sour note for the hosts was a last-minute red card for Paulo Vinicius after a poor challenge on Albert Ze Meyong.
Rio Ave 1 – Vitoria Guimaraes 3 (Liga Sagres, January 20, 2013) All the goals came in the second half, with Amido Balde breaking the deadlock in the 59th minute. Rio Ave substitute Ahmed Hassan levelled, but Tiago Rodrigues restored Guimaraes’ lead from the penalty spot in the 74th minute and – after Filipe Souza saw red for the hosts – Balde made sure a minute from time.
