Braga vs Sporting CP Prediction
Braga extended their winning streak in the top flight to four games on the trot last week after they took down Moreirense on the road with a 2-0 scoreline. The hosts have just been too hot to tame as of late, and have picked up the win in each of their past seven fixtures across various competitions.
With thirty points in the bag, the home team are currently just two points shy of overtaking Sporting CP on the ladder.
On the other hand, the visitors have failed to ensure consistency in their clashes as of late. They have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past five fixtures in the first division, the most recent of which, saw them get the better of Maritimo at home, albeit by a narrow 1-0 scorecard.
Furthermore, the guests have admitted defeat in two of their past five outings, and have dropped points a total of four times in their last nine. To make matters worse, Sporting CP have not been coping well in their recent visits to this stadium.
Miserably, they have been at the losing end in three of their previous four trips here. With home advantage under their belt, Braga are unlikely to fluff their chances of coming away with the win in this one.
In addition, the hosts have been found napping at the back far too many times at home. Disappointingly, they have conceded a total of eleven goals here so far, and have kept a clean sheet on just two occasions.
Meanwhile, Sporting CP have looked lively in the final third in their recent trips on the road. Impressively they have scored seven goals from their past two outings in the league alone. Hence, it is certainly well within reason to count on both teams to have their scoring boots on this weekend.
