In all likelihood, Os Açoreanos could use the 4-3-3 formation for this one, handing starts to Marco Rocha, Zaidu Sanusi, Fabio Cardoso, João Afonso, Pierre Sagna, Osama Rashid, Anderson Carvalho, Francisco Ramos, Zé Manuel, Thiago Santos Santana and Lincoln.

Due to a fully healthy group ready to go, Braga boss Custódio Castro has no fitness concerns at all coming into this match.

We believe Os Arcebispos appear most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-3 lineup, settling for Matheus Lima, Bruno Viana, David Carmo, Raúl Silva, Ricardo Esgaio, João Palhinha, Fransergio, Pedro Amador, Francisco Trincão, Paulinho and Ricardo Horta.

⚡ Prediction

Our feeling is that Santa Clara might have a difficult job to register a score against this Braga outfit who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well. Therefore, we predict a 0-1 win for Braga when all is said and done. Should be interesting.
