📏 Form Guide

Braga
Braga
DLWLLW

Braga, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-4 Primeira Liga success against Tondela.

In that game, Braga managed 51% possession and 19 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. For Braga, the scorers were Bruno Viana (22'), Galeno (26', 43') and Ricardo Horta (29'). For their opponents, Tondela got 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target.

It’s been all too rare in recent games that Braga have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Os Arcebispos have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 7 goals during that time. That sort of pattern might not follow through here, though.

Coming into this meeting, Braga haven't been beaten in the league by Nacional in their previous 9 games. A long run without a loss.

In their previous fixture, Nacional drew 0-0 in the Primeira Liga tie with Belenenses.

In that match, Nacional had 56% possession and 18 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. On the other side, Belenenses had 7 attempts on goal with 2 on target.

Luís Freire's Nacional have had reason to celebrate scoring 9 times throughout their latest sextet of matches. The overall goals that have been scored against them during that period adds up to 5.

Their previous form shows that Nacional:

  • have left without a victory over Braga when they've played them away from home in the last 5 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
  • have not been beaten in their last 4 league matches away from home.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A quick look at past results between these clubs stretching back to 16/08/2015 reveals that these encounters have ended in disappointment for Nacional. They have not managed to get themselves any victories whatsoever whereas Braga have just been too good for them, running out winners in 83% of those games where they have faced each other.

21 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 16 of them for Os Arcebispos and 5 netted by Os Alvinegros. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.5.

📰 Team News: Braga

Nico Gaitán (Muscle Injury) and Rui Fonte (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Braga manager Carlos Carvalhal.

🗞️ Team News: Nacional

Out of a mainly available squad, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Nacional manager Luís Freire to be concerned about. João Vigário (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here.

💭 Prediction

It certainly seems that Nacional will have a difficult task to break down a Braga side who should dominate this match.

Our tip is for a convincing 3-0 winning scoreline for Braga at the end of this one.
