Portimonense vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão (Portimão).
Braga had been amongst the best of the lot in the Portuguese first division last season and had taken the European spots in style, by posting a massive lead of 15 points above the next-best squad.
This time around though, they have so far failed to do justice to those levels. As of now, they have registered a single win, and this had come in the first match-day of the competition.
Opponents Portimonense too are going through a similar dismal run. They are winless in their prior four fixtures in the league and lost three of these last four as well.
They will have to make the most out of their home advantage this weekend to slowly get back on track.

- Disregarding a 1-1 draw in 2019, the hosts have lost all of their ties at this stadium.
Portimonense vs Braga Prediction
Both teams are struggling at the moment, and are in desperate need for points. Both are going through winless runs, and if the streak is kept alive, the chances to turn around the season would turn slim. As such, we could expect a fiercely competitive tie this Sunday, which should most likely lead to goals.
In addition, four of the former six encounters between the two ended with goals at either end of the pitch, and the visitors have never failed to find the back of the net here as well.
Taking these observations into account, expect the nets to be shook at either end of the pitch.
Going on, since the Archbishops holds a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent, a 100% win-record at this venue barring one match, the basic expectation should have been for a road win. But with the current struggles of Braga in mind, we’ll opt for them to win either half of the game.
