In that game, Braga had 54% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 3 on target. For Braga, the goalscorers were Paulinho (1'), Trincão (42') and Galeno (65').

The numbers tell their own story, and Braga have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 8 goals in all. In defence, Os Arcebispos just haven’t been too solid at all. We will just have to see whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.

Coming into this clash, Braga haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.

ℹ️ Team News: Rio Ave

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Rio Ave gaffer Carlos Carvalhal to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy squad. Nikola Jambor (Knee Surgery) is out of contention. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Al Musrati, Nuno Santos and Diogo Figueiras.

📋 Team News: Braga

Braga boss Custódio Castro has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Vítor Tormena (Muscle Injury) and Wallace (Muscle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.

⚡ Prediction

Our thinking is that Rio Ave will need things to go their way to breach the defence of this Braga lineup who we reckon should end up scoring and staying ahead. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 advantage for Braga at the end of this one. A close call.
