The reigning champs started the league positively aiming another title. The Dragons are equal on points with their opponents for Saturday but are on top of the table on goal difference.

They are on a 6 game winning streak in all competitions and 4 of those matches had over 2.5 goals scored in total. In the 9 games, they played they have won 7 and lost 2 which includes a surprising defeat at home against Guimaraes.

At home, they have not lost a match since that defeat and are currently on a 5 match winning streak. A win is needed for the Blue and whites to avoid the pressure from the team based in the city of Braga.

The Archbishops are the only team this season to not lose a league game. In the 9 matches, they have 6 wins and 3 draws. They are also unbeaten in all competitions as well.

In Away matches, they have not faced a strong side alike themselves. So this is the first real challenge for them this season.

With the top spot guaranteed for the winners, we can expect a closely contested match between two giants in Portuguese football on Saturday.

FC Porto vs Braga: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Porto is undefeated in the last 5 h2h matches played between these two teams.
  • They have won 3 of those games.
  • The latest game was played on February this year and was won by Porto at home with the final score of 3-1.

FC Porto vs Braga: Prediction

The visitors have never lost any game till now. They managed to draw some games in which the opponents were a bit hard to break down. So with Porto in form also we can expect the game to be close and there will be nothing surprising if the game ends as a draw. But I think Braga has what it takes to upset the reigning champs. So we can bet on a Double Chance of either the game ending as a draw or the away side winning with 3.00 odd.

Both the teams have the best defensive unit in the league. Porto has only conceded 6 goals from 9 games and the team managed by Abel Ferreira has given away only 9 goals. So we can expect both the sides to keep it tight in the back, and the team with the best attack may go on to take the 3 points from this crunch match. So we can bet on a score of under 2.5 goals this Saturday with 1.91 odd.

FC Porto vs Braga: Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.91 (10/11).
  • Double Chance: Braga to win or Draw @ 3.00 (2/1).
