Wins for Porto, Benfica & Sporting Lisbon

FC Porto 2 – Academica Coimbra 1 (Liga Sagres, November 11, 2012) Porto spent the first half trying to unlock a stubborn defence, with patience and persistence of their veterans finally paying off after the break. James Rodríguez and Joao Moutinho (golazo) put the Dragoes in control, before Wilson Eduardo reduced the Briosa’s arrears.

Rio Ave 0 – Benfica 1 (Liga Sagres, November 11, 2012) A solitary strike from Lima was enough to give Benfica the points against Rio Ave.

Sporting Lisbon 1 – Braga 0 (Liga Sagres, November 11, 2012) An early Ricky van Wolfswinkel goal gave Sporting the much needed boost of three points in an entertaining clash against Braga at the Alvalade tonight. After being second best in the first half, Braga roared back and were unlucky to have what looked a clean goal ruled out, as well as being thwarted by an inspired performance from Rui Patricio.

Estoril 2 – Moreirense 0 (Liga Sagres, November 11, 2012)
