Live Soccer TV provides you with an overview of what to expect as matchday 23 of the 2021/22 Primeira Liga season gets underway.

Last time out saw Sporting CP and Porto, who sit in second and first respectively, end up canceling each other out in a two-all draw. The match also garnered a lot of attention due to the numerous red cards that were dished out due to a massive brawl, but with the two sides both dropping points, Benfica just may have a slight glimmer of hope at potentially breaking into the top two.

Primeira Liga games you won't want to miss on matchday 23

Boavista vs Benfica: Matchday 23 kicks off on Friday with Benfica paying visit to Boavista. Initially, it seemed like the Eagles were totally out of the title race, but with Sporting and Porto playing to a two-all draw, there just may be a life-line for Benfica to force their way back into contention. Of course, it will all depend on the results Sporting and Porto's matches that will be played over the weekend, but a win for Benfica will see them temporarily move to one point behind second-placed Sporting.

Still, it may be easier said than done, as Benfica have a mixed record when playing Boavista on the road, with just nine wins from their last 25 trips (eight losses, eight draws). That being said, current Boavista boss Petit has never beaten Benfica in 14 prior attempts - 14 games, 14 losses so far - and so it will be interesting to see if the home pitch advantage will help the hosts overcome that frustrating run. 

Sporting CP vs Estoril: After their 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City in their Champions League round of 16 tie, Sporting CP will have to shake that off quickly as they prepare to welcome Estoril in domestic action this weekend. Last time out saw them draw with Porto in a match that saw several players sent off, so it will be interesting to see how the Lions adjust after a very hectic week.

Moreirense vs Porto: League leaders Porto will look to maintain their unbeaten run so far this season and ensure they can continue their march towards the title when they travel to face relegation-threatened Moreirense this weekend. The Dragons will be keen on moving on after the chaos that ensued during their clash with Sporting last time out, but will face a very tricky test in their upcoming Europa League clash against Lazio.

All in all, Porto are unbeaten in their last 50 Primeira Liga matches, and to date, no team has ever completed a full season sans defeat in the Portuguese top flight. While there is still plenty of football to go, Porto's form has Portuguese football fans wondering if the Dragons will be able to achieve this impressive feat at the end of the current campaign.
