Braga Prediction – Can Braga make top four finish again?

Last season saw Braga finish in 4th place in the Portuguese top flight with a comfortable 15-point cushion ahead of 5th placed Vitoria Guimaraes.

The hosts themselves found themselves a long way short of the top two clubs though as they ended up trailing runners-up, Porto, by a massive 18 points.

Another similar season could therefore unfold for Braga this term in the Primeira Liga and they’ll be looking to make a positive start at home on Sunday.

Braga played no fewer than 8 pre-season matches in their preparations for this new upcoming season, and they suffered just 1 defeat during this period.

In addition, Braga secured what could prove to be a valuable 4-2 win in their midweek Europa League 1st leg away at Brondby.

This midweek result will certainly serve as a timely boost ahead of this opening match of the season in the domestic top flight.

An impressive home record for Braga ended up on 13-1-3 32/15 at the end of last term, and they’ve also held the upper hand in recent exchanges on home turf against Moreirense.

The home side have won their last 2 encounters at home against their visitors, recording 2-0 and 3-0 wins respectively.

Moreirense Prediction – Can Moreirense be more consistent on the road?

The visitors finished last season’s campaign in 6th place in the Primeira Liga which was a solid end to a good season indeed for Moreirense.

A 15-point gap separated them from their Sunday hosts Braga though, and this could underline the difference between these two teams again in this clash too.

It was a poor end to Moreirenses’s season though as they suffered 4 defeats out of their final 5 matches of the season.

Defeats to Chaves, Boavista, Rio Ave and Vitoria Guimaraes dashed any outside hopes of clinching a top four spot.

A 4-match unbeaten run during their pre-season resulted in 2 wins and 2 draws for the visitors which should have given Moreirense momentum.

However, 1-0 loss away at Vitoria Setubal in last weekend’s Taca da Liga means that the visitors head into this opening day fixture on the back of a loss.

An overall away record last season finished up on an inconsistent looking 8-1-8 21/25 and they’ll also be looking to avoid a third consecutive loss at Braga too.


Key-Facts – Braga v Moreirense

  • Braga lost just 1 of their 8 pre-season matches during the summer
  • Braga have won the last 2 encounters at home against Moreirense on the trot
  • Moreirense lost 4 of their final 5 matches of the Primeira Liga last season


Betting Tips Verdict

Braga with home advantage should grab all three points here and also cover the handicap line too.
