Braga, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 Primeira Liga success over Belenenses.

In that match, Braga managed 63% possession and 25 attempts at goal with 9 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Braga was Ricardo Horta (90'). Belenenses had 9 shots on goal with 1 on target.

Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the Braga defence. Braga have been mean at the back, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past 6 outings standing at 3.

Arouca

Arouca will come into the encounter after a 1-0 Primeira Liga win vs Portimonense in their last game.

In that game, Arouca had 52% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. The scorer for Arouca was David Simão (50'). Portimonense had 7 attempts on goal with 4 on target.

The stats don’t lie, and Arouca have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. Defensively, Arouca have some weaknesses to address. That kind of trend won’t necessarily follow through into this match, of course.

Going into this one, Arouca haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Looking at their prior head to head meetings dating back to 15/02/2015 shows us that Braga have won 3 of these games & Arouca 0, with the tally of drawn games standing at 3.

14 goals were produced between them in these games, with 12 from Os Arcebispos and 2 created by Arouca. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.33.

The previous league clash between the two was Primeira Liga match day 16 on 30/12/2021 when it finished Arouca 0-6 Braga.

In that match, Arouca managed 51% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target.

For their opponents, Braga had 11 shots on goal with 8 on target. Vítor Oliveira (6', 12', 26'), Iuri Medeiros (70') and Roger Fernandes (75', 79') scored.

The referee was Manuel Oliveira.

📰 Team News: Braga

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Braga boss Carlos Carvalhal to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Nuno Sequeira (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.

It seems likely that Os Arcebispos look set to make use of the 3-4-3 system for the game featuring Matheus Lima, Paulo Oliveira, David Carmo, Vítor Tormena, Yan Couto, André Horta, Ali Elmusrati, Andre Castro, R. Martins Gomes, Abel Ruiz and Ricardo Horta.

📋 Team News: Arouca

Arouca manager Armando Evangelista has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Yaw Moses (Unknown Injury), Fernando Castro (Arm Injury) and José Manuel Velázquez (Achilles tendon rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We reckon that Arouca seem most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Victor Braga, Thales Oleques, Nino Galovic, Joao Othavio Basso, M. Quaresma Correia, Leandro Silva, David Simão, A. Watshini Bukia, Alan Ruiz, Arsenio and André Silva.

✨ Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Braga are likely to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.

In contrast, Arouca may well struggle getting on the scoresheet although we do think it’s probable that they will be scoring here as well.

Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 victory for Braga by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
