The Archbishops suffered a surprising Europa League elimination to Ukrainian Zorya (3-3 on aggregate) on the away goal rule, but they’ve been super prolific in domestic campaign bagging an impressive 10-goal tally in three opening rounds.

Can they keep such a scintillating attacking form going in the first fixture of the Matchday no 4 on Friday evening away at Estadio Municipal Eng. Manuel Branco Teixeira?

It should not be too big of a challenge for Abel Ferreira’s troops given Chaves’ poor defensive shape at the start of the new season.

Flavienses suffered a true disaster in the first round, falling 5-0 to Porto away at Dragao. They then bounced back beating Portimonense 2-0 in the lone home game of the season, but only to fall 2-1 to Maritimo on the road last weekend.

Chaves vs Braga: Head-to-head

Braga were one of the toughest rivals to handle for Chaves over the years.

The Archbishops won 12, drew 1 and lost only 3 of 15 H2H games with Chaves.

Braga won 10 and drew 1 of last 11 meetings with Flavienses.

Chaves scored just one goal in last seven encounters with the Archbishops.

Chaves vs Braga: Prediction

Dyego Sousa has been red-hot at the start of the new season. The Brazilian forward bagged four goals in three matches and he should have plenty of room to create past the defensive line which allowed as many as five goals in a demolishing loss to Porto.

Knowing that Braga were more than dominant in the history of H2H games against Flavienses, we just have to go for the away win at 1.72 odds, backing the Archbishops to stay at the very top of the Primeira Liga standings after the fourth round as well.

The alternative bet will be Dyego Sousa to score anytime at the 2.25 odds.

Chaves vs Braga: Bet Tips

Sporting Braga to win @ 3/4 (1.75)

Dyego Sousa to score anytime @ 13/10 (2.30).
