The Archbishops are in hunt for a Europa League ticket, and they are strongly placed in a podium spot as well. On top of that they have been on great form recently. Meanwhile, their counterparts are struggling to perform be it at home or on the road, and have a terrible h2h record against this opponent. As such, expect a Braga win this weekend.

Braga vs Boavista Prediction

The Panthers are on a five-game winless run (of which four were losses), and they failed to score goals in three of their prior four fixtures as well. Moreover, since May of 2019, they have had a total of four wins away from home, and failed to score in three of their last six road trips.

On the other hand, their counterparts began 2020 with a seven-match winning run, and of their only three losses this year, two had come in the Europa League. And at home, this whole season they have lost just three times – once in the Europa League, once against Benfica (defending champions), and one time against Ferreira. 

Moreover, at this venue, the Archbishops have kept clean sheets in 11 of the preceding 14 h2h fixtures, and they have been unbeaten against the Panthers since 2002 as well. Keep note that the Panthers had conceded three or more goals in three of their last five visits to this stadium as well.

Considering these observations, it’s evident that Braga are on course to deliver a huge win this Saturday.
