Sporting CP are the early pace setters after two wins and a draw but they have conceded in each game so far. A clean sheet looks a bit of a stretch here too against Rio Ave, who have a player bang in form in Iranian Mehdi Taremi, who hit a hat-trick against Aves on Friday in a storming 5-1 victory.
