Sporting Braga vs FC Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-off at 21:15 UK/ 22:15 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Braga.
The Dragons have been the best team overall this season in the league, and showed impeccable form in taking the title back from Benfica.
Not only they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, but they have conceded the least as well.
On the other hand we have the Archbishops, who are desperate for a win this weekend. In order for them to qualify for the Europa League Group Stage, they have to win this upcoming fixture, and have to hope that Sporting lose against Benfica as well.
Considering the sheer superiority of Sergio Conceicao’s men over all other teams in the competition this campaign, and the desperation of Artur Jorge’s men, expecet a huge Porto win this Saturday.

Sporting Braga vs FC Porto Prediction
The title-winners are on a six-game winning run at the moment, and have scored a total of 16 goals from the preceding four games. They have also kept clean sheets in six of their previous eight overall match-ups.
Moreover, they have already won the league, and could play with a free mind. On the other hand, their opposite number are desperate for a win – never a good state of mind to have against the Dragons.
On top of that, the Archbishops were winless in six of their former nine overall games, and they have a single league win at this stadium against this opponent since 2009.
Considering these factors, expect a winning performance from Porto this Saturday.
