Casa Pia will be looking for a win that will move them into the Champions League spots in the Primeira Liga when they play host to Chaves at Estadio Nacional on Sunday.

Victor Campelos’ side are now have a seven-point gap to Gil Vicente in the relegation playoff spot, which is not quite the remarkable 14-point gap Casa Pia possess, but still represents a successful start to a first season back in the top flight.
