FC Porto vs Braga Prediction & Match Preview

FC Porto vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio do Dragão (Porto).

FC Porto kind of lost their unbeaten streak against Braga at home in their h2h meetings with the 1-2 loss in the last season campaign. The host hadn’t lost in that fixture since 2005, which is why we can expect the Dragons to put all in for revenge in the upcoming clash at Porto.

The 1-2 win on the road against Benfica last time out in the Taco de Portugal will boost the home team players morale in the game. In the meantime, Braga hasn’t played in any major competition since July this year.

The gap will probably affect the player’s form in the match. However, they will visit on the back of a 2-1 win at home against the host in the last league clash previous season. Carlos Carvalhal will assemble his troops trying to repeat the win, but Sergio Conceicao’s men will probably have other plans.

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

  • Four of the recent five fixtures have seen both teams score.

FC Porto vs Braga Prediction

There is no doubt that with their home ground advantage, the Dragons have a slight edge over the second runners up of the last season campaign. Besides, as mentioned earlier, the host has lost only one of their last 19 h2h home clashes with the Archbishops.

Based on these stats, the home win in full-time will probably be a suitable option. From the goals area, the tip for under 3.5 goals will serve the purpose as both teams have a strong defense. Apart from that, the host is also likely to win either half of the clash at Porto.
