Porto Preview – Can the Dragons bounce back with a win?

Porto have made a strong start to their season, winning five of their opening seven matches, losing one and drawing one of the other two. They dropped points in their last one, drawing 1-1 at Estoril before the international break.

Porto have won all three home matches in the league this term, seeing off Maritimo, Sporting Lisbon and Chaves. However, the Dragons crashed to a heavy 4-0 loss to Club Brugge in their last home fixture at the Estadio do Dragao.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1657 GMT, Thursday 29 September)

Porto won the league with comfort last season, but things could be a lot tighter this time around. They are already five points behind Benfica, who have won all seven of their matches, so Porto could really do with maximum points from this one. Sergio Conceicao’s side are the odds-on favourites to get the win on Friday.

Braga Preview – Will the Archbishops make it nine wins on the bounce?

Braga have made a sensational start to their season, as they have won every game in all competitions since drawing 3-3 in a thriller with Sporting on the opening weekend of the league campaign back in early August.

Artur Jorge’s troops have picked up eight straight victories, including UEFA Europa League wins over Malmo and Union Berlin. Before the international break, Braga beat Vizela 2-0.

Porto vs Braga Betting Advice

Last season, both clubs won 1-0 in the home game. In December 2021, Luis Diaz gave Porto a parting gift by netting the only goal of the game at the Estadio do Dragao. Braga returned the favour with a 1-0 victory at the Estadio Municipal de Braga in April.

Porto have struggled at Braga in recent years, but they have a solid home league record over Those from Minho. In fact, Braga have won just once at Porto in the league since 2005.


Key Facts – Porto vs Braga Betting Tip

  • Porto lost 4-0 in their last home match
  • Braga have won eight league and cup games in a row
  • Braga won 1-0 when these two last met


These two teams look well matched on paper. Porto have a solid home record over Braga, but the Minho Warriors have won two of the past four league and cup meetings.

We can see the duo playing out a draw, and there is good value in bet365’s 9/2 for the draw and under 2.5 goals.
