Braga vs Maritimo
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 23 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Braga (Braga).
Braga had been part of the top-four the last season that posted an almost unimaginable lead of points over the others by the time the campaign came to an end. In fact, they had a surplus of 15 points over the next best squad, and almost double that of Maritimo.
This time around though, the team has failed to rise to the expectations set by their previous performances. And for sure the players are desperate to get their Primeira Liga run on full swing.
Helping them most probably would be this tie, considering the level of opponents they are hosting this weekend. Not only did the visitors of the day ended up in the bottom tier in 2018-19, but they are on course to do so in this edition of the competition too.

- 13 of the former 16 wins at this venue went to the hosts.
- The visitors conceded twice or more in the prior five meetings at this stadium.
Braga vs Maritimo Prediction
The recent struggles of the Archbishops could be attributed to their tough schedule, and the reliable expectation is for them to bounce back very soon. Considering they are at home this Monday, and taking on a side with poor away stats, the upper hand rightfully goes to the hosts.
Take into account the fact that the Green-and-Reds have just four league wins to their name away from home since September of last year, whereas in the same period the only losses the hosts of the day suffered at this ground other than to Benfica, and Porto, have been once against Belenenses.
Moreover, former h2h clashes too clearly pick out Ricardo Pinto’s men as the favorites and count on them to put on a great display.
