Sporting Braga Preview – Can Braga bounce back?

Sporting Braga were unable to repeat last season’s heroics against Porto whom they beat at the end of last term with a 2-1 home win, as they went down to a 3-1 loss on the road at the Estádio Do Dragão in last weekend’s opening match of this new Primeira Liga season, but they return to their Estádio Municipal de Braga for this Friday’s clash against Santa Clara.

Braga enjoyed a successful campaign in last season’s Portuguese top flight as the hosts finished in 3rd place which was largely thanks to a solid record at home which saw them finish up with a very solid record of 10-4-3 32/20 and included just one defeat from their final 10 matches at home.

Seven of these last 10 home matches also saw Braga score 2 goals or more and this was certainly the case when they last hosted Santa Clara with a 2-0 win, and indeed, Braga are unbeaten in their last seven meetings at home against Santa Clara, winning six of these encounters.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Santa Clara Preview – Can Santa Clara build on solid start?

A 2-0 home win on the opening day of the new Portuguese Primeira Liga season last weekend saw Santa Clara start their season off in perfect fashion as they collected all three points against Maritimo, but they now face a tough trip to face Sporting Braga on Friday night.

Santa Clara finished last season in a respectable mid-table position of 9th place as they beat the teams around or below them in the Primeira Liga and more or less held their own throughout the whole of last season’s campaign and finished the season with a three-match unbeaten run.

A 4-3 win away from home at Benfica was undoubtedly Santa Clara’s highlight on their travels amidst an overall away record of 5-6-6 18/20 but that was their only win on the road from their final seven matches, and they hold a wretched record away at Sporting Braga.
