No let-up from front four
A theme of this nascent season is the way the Big Three are intent on imitating each other. After Benfica, Porto and Sporting all struggled to 1-0 wins in the second round of matches, in Round Three the traditional title candidates all thrashed their opponents, with star strikers Jonas, Aboubakar and Bas Dost among the goals.
Rio Ave are keeping up the pace, their 2-0 home win over Portimonense making sure the Vila do Conde side remain in the leading pack, also on 9 points after three games.
It sets up an exciting programme next week, with Rio Ave and Braga hosting Benfica and Porto respectively in the last round of matches before the international break. PortuGOAL rounds up the action and this week's Figure of the Week turns the spotlight on Bruno Fernandes.
