FC Porto vs Braga Match Preview

FC Porto will be hosting after a successful trip to Moreirense which ended in a 2-4 scoreline. They are unbeaten in the past fourteen league fixtures.

Meanwhile, Braga marked their third win in the past five league clashes after the 2-1 win at home against Tondela. They have lost two of the recent five games in the campaign.

FC Porto vs Braga Prediction

Having lost only one match in their 16 league appearances so far, FC Porto has not allowed much room for any errors in their games. Residing at the second spot in the table, another three points would help them inch closer to Benfica at the top.

Apart from their overall league performance and the 17 points lead over Braga in the table, FC Porto will have their home ground advantage in the clash.

Until now, the host has not lost any of their points at home and are the only squad in the campaign to achieve that. So, it is very unlikely that Braga can return with something after the match.

Besides that, Braga has lost two of their last five away games in the league. Also, the visitor has won only three of their eight fixtures away from home.

Hence, the odds are stacked against Braga and they are more prone to a defeat at Porto. So, Braga has more chances of winning all three points from the match.
