Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 25 June 2020
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Braga (Braga).
Braga has slid down to the fourth spot and if they continue to drop points, the host will probably lose their spot in the Europa Qualifiers. Guimaraes is without a win post lockdown and is unlikely to change that trend here.
Braga dropped points in their recent three fixtures with two losses and a draw. The goalless draw on the road against Famalicao came in their last match in the campaign.
The host has only 3 losses in their 13 home matches so far in the campaign.
Vitoria de Guimaraes has been sharing spoils with the opponents for the past three fixtures straight, following a 1-1 draw at home against Moreirense last time out in the league.
They are unbeaten in their last six clashes, which will be an advantage for them prior to the clash.
However, Guimaraes has recorded only 4 wins in their 13 trips on the road in the campaign. Three of those four wins have come within the recent four tours in their schedule.
The visitors are lagging 7 points behind the host in the table and it gives a slight edge for the home team along with their ground advantage.

Braga vs Vitoria de Guimaraes Prediction
Braga’s previous two meetings with the guest in 2019, including the reverse fixture this season, saw the Archbishops taking the bragging rights along with a clean sheet in each.
Besides, their current form at home is favorable for using their home ground advantage, but the host will have to be careful as the guests have made progress in their recent on the road encounters.
The tip for home win is very low to yield any returns for the punters and hence, the draw no bet over Braga with 1.50 odds will be the best bet for the clash.
Since their recent two meetings with Guimaraes have ended in clean sheets, it is likely for the home team to draw the first blood in ninety minutes.
At 1.60 odds, the tip for the host to score first is a suitable option in the encounter for the punters.
