Feirense vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:15UK
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria de Feira).
Feirense are going to take on Braga in the 29th round of Portuguese Primeira Liga on Saturday evening. Home side is searching for a getaway from the relegation zone, while the visitors want to challenge the third spot.
Feirense have relegation troubles this season and they are the first team below the red line being two points behind Moreirense and Aves. Their form is not promising at all since they have been defeated four times in the last five occasions. Nuno Santos’ side is having problems in converting their chances into goals, while their defence is not so tight. Their home performances are below the average and although they were able to book five wins in front of their fans, Feirense have also been defeated eight times. The hosts need to break this winless run if they want to remain in the top flight next season.
Braga have been in a superb form lately and their streak of six wins secured them at least 4th place, but after Sporting’s bad displays lately, they are in the position to challenge the 3rd spot. The visitors are just one point below Sporting and Ricardo Horta and the lads are very efficient in the past few weeks. There are many players in Braga capable of finding the back of the net and there’s no player that particularly stands out, which makes them a compact team. They celebrated three away victories in a row from eight in total.
Feirense vs Braga: Head-to-head
Interestingly, Braga celebrated a win in their five head to head clashes so far, leaving the rivals without any point won. And usually the crowd was able to see many goals, at least three in four occasions.
Feirense vs Braga: Prediction
Although the hosts are desperately searching for a win, Braga are strong favourites here and they should be able to get back home with three points.
Since Braga have been very efficient lately, in this one we should be able to see at least three goals.
