Belenenses vs Braga
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 30 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional (Jamor).
Braga continued their title push on Monday evening when they saw off Spotting Lisbon 1.0 at home in the derby of the Matchday. They thus backed up a stunning start to the new Primeira Liga campaign making it four wins and a draw after five rounds. The Archbishops are lock on points with Benifca at the very top of the standings at the moment and they’ll be hoping to keep such form going on Sunday evening against Belenenses.
It will be a tough trip for Abel Ferreira’s side given the hosts have been fairly tough to break down so far in the season. The Bethlehem head into this off the back of three straight draws in Primeira Liga, a thread which saw them concede just one goal in the process. They’ve obviously been toothless at the other end netting the same amount of goals along, but keeping things tight will be their primary goal here against Braga.

Belenenses vs Braga: Prediction
The head coach Silas will likely park the bus here and wait for his team’s chances on the break given Braga have more quality in their ranks. Since the visitors have also been super stern at the back in their latest set of fixtures, we can hardly imagine a high-scoring affair on Sunday evening at Estadio Nacional.
In regards to that, the main bet will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.95. The more conservative punters can take Under 3.5 goals FT at 1.33 as sort of a banker. Furthermore, Braga are 2.37 to keep a clean sheet against a side which failed to find the back of the net in last two league matches.
