The Deceuninck–Quick-Step rider, this year’s winner at Tour of Flanders, finished with a time of 23’52” and held Portuguese Rafael Reis 3 seconds behind him. Benjamin Thomas came in third.

General classification leader Ethan Hayter crashed in a corner, but the Ineos Grenadiers rider still managed to keep the yellow leader’s jersey. The 22-year-old was still good for the ninth fastest time more than a minute behind Asgreen.

Sunday is the final stage through hilly countryside from Albufeira to Malhão over 170 kilometers. Hayter will try to defend a 12-second lead over Portuguese João Rodrigues, while Asgreen is 21 seconds behind Hayter.
