Braga is a little far to make it into the top three on the table this season. Besides, the host has only one win from their past five clashes in the campaign. They will lock horns with Pacos de Ferreira, with the latter trailing by ten points on the league table as it stands.
The Archbishops will return home after two consecutive losses in their schedule, including a 1-0 loss on the road against Maritimo last time out in the campaign. In the meantime, the Beavers broke their winless streak with a 1-0 win at home against Belenenses in the last league clash.
The host will come into the fixture with hopes to make a comeback in the Primeira Liga. Since both their recent two defeats ended in a 1-0 scoreline, there is a good chance that they have committed mistakes in the middle playing more defensively. On the other hand, the home win against a mid-table side will not be strong support for the visitor coming into the game.
Braga vs Pacos de Ferreira Head-to-head (h2h)
- None of their last nine matches have ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter gave a 2-0 home win for Ferreira.
- The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- The guest has been successful only once in their last six visits.
Braga vs Pacos de Ferreira Prediction
Despite their recent dip in form, Braga is likely to walk away with all three points here. The host enjoys the ground advantage and has lost only two of their last six home matches. These defeats came against the teams sitting above them on the table.
Hence, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Furthermore, they are a strong attacking side in the Portuguese top tier this season until now. As such, we can expect the teams to be involved in quite a lot of corners in ninety minutes. So, the tip for over 8 corners in full-time will probably be another suitable option to yield decent returns in the encounter.
