Braga sits fourth in the league standings with a point below Sporting CP, drew their match day 17 fixture against Chaves. A win here could lift them to second in the table if FC Porto fail to win their match on Sunday against Rio Ave. There are currently on a 4 match unbeaten run with 3 wins in their bag. However, they failed to score in their last league game and were held to a goal-less draw at Nacional.

Tondela are at the foot of the table with 10 points from their 16 matches so far. The biggest news from their camp is the resignation of Petit as head-coach on the aftermath of the 1-2 defeat to Chaves at home last weekend. He is replaced by Pepa, who started the season with Moreirense and got sacked in November 2015. Tondela are yet to win an away match in the league this season, managing just 2 points from their 8 road games so far. They are also win-less in the last 5 across all venues, losing 4 of them.

Braga vs Tondela: Head-to-head stats

The two meetings between the two teams last season was won by Braga without conceding a goal. It was a narrow 1-0 win away at Tondela, while they earned a comfortable 3-0 win back home.

Braga vs Tondela: Prediction

Tondela are a team in tatters and the players might take some time to gel under the new manager. Braga were exceptional in home games this season and are coming on the back of 7 straight league wins at the Municipal Stadium. Therefore, a comfortable win by a 2 or more goals margin is very much on the cards for the hosts.
