Braga make the trip to Estádio de São Luís on Monday for the Primeira Liga tie with home team Farense.
All Farense v Braga game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below including the latest game odds.
Farense will be looking for a repeat result of the 0-1 Primeira Liga success vs Boavista.
In that game, Farense managed 49% possession and 19 attempts on goal with 8 on target. The only player to score for Farense was Licá (25'). For their opponents, Boavista got 14 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
Farense have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 against opponents over the course of their last 6 outings. In those games, Farense have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 5.
Pre-game facts show that Farense:
- have left without a victory over Braga in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 5 league games. Things will have to change soon.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Benfica in Primeira Liga action, Braga will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Braga had 39% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. At the other end, Benfica had 10 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Rafa Silva (45') and Haris Seferović (56') scored for Benfica.
In a total of 5 out of the previous 6 clashes involving Braga, three or more goals have gone in. The average number of goals per game during that spell is 3.67, with the number of goals averaged by Braga coming out as 2. Let’s see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Going into this encounter, Braga are unbeaten in their last 4 league matches away from home.

Team News: Braga
Braga boss Carlos Carvalhal has to choose a team with limited availability. David Carmo (Ankle Fracture), Iuri Medeiros (Knee Injury), Raúl Silva (Unknown Injury), Rolando (Unknown Injury), Francisco Moura (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Nuno Sequeira (Unknown Injury), André Castro (Unknown Injury) and Rui Fonte (Fitness) are those who can’t be considered. Fransérgio is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our opinion, Farense will need things to go their way to break down this Braga outfit who we think should just have the edge.
