Boavista 0-2 Benfica; Sporting 2-1 Setubal; Chaves 2-0 Portimonense; Aves 2-2 Tondela
Four matches have occurred in the Primeira Liga so far this weekend, with two of the Big Three already in action and a total of 11 goals already scored.
The first match of this round of fixtures occurred on Friday at Aves, who were playing host to Tondela in what was something of a yo-yo clash, with neither side able to retain a leading position, ultimately resulting in a deadlock.
Tondela took the lead in the opening few minutes thanks to Juan Delgado, but ex-Benfica striker Derley was quick to put things back on level terms just ten minutes later. On the hour mark, Nildo Petrolina then put Aves in front for the first time on the night, but Pablo Sabbag rounded off the match with 15 minutes remaining in what was the first draw of the entire league campaign.
Meanwhile, Benfica - who play PAOK this Tuesday in the Champions League play-off round, made easy work of Boavista, earning a convincing 2-0 away victory as they look to regain the title they lost to Porto last season.
Benfica dominated throughout and it was their summer signing, Facundo Ferreyra, who found the back of the net in the first half to put the Lisbon club in front. Pizzi - who scored an outstanding hattrick in the first match of the season only last week - added to his goal tally in the 62nd minute, making him outright top scorer for the season so far, having now scored four of Benfica's five league goals.
Sporting, on the other hand, pulled out another stuttering performance, this time at home to Setubal, where recently returning club favourite Nani was the saviour, scoring both of Sporting's goals to gift them a narrow 2-1 victory and put them on two wins from two and top of the table with city rivals Benfica.
At least one of the club's perfect starts to the season will have to come to an end next weekend though, with the two Lisbon clubs meeting at the Estadio da Luz next Saturday.
The other Saturday match was between Chaves and Portimonense, with the host's running away to a 2-0 victory over Shoya Nakajima's Portimonense side, leaving them with no points from two games and rooted to the bottom of the table.
