Braga have started their new season with a 3-3 draw. They displayed their offensive potential in that game. Going on, they won another four and are having a streak of five unbeaten games at the moment with a separate four-fixture winning streak.
The team can be thrilled with the performances of their offensive line at the start of the season. They have scored three or more goals in four of their five appearances they had this campaign.
Thus, Braga will be looking forward to maintain the impressive start at the beginning of the season. It also deserves to be mentioned that no other outfits have scored more goals than them in the competition.
Meanwhile, Rio Ave delivered their best performance upon returning to the elite class of Portuguese football in the second-last round against the reigning champions FC Porto, that too in a dominant fashion.
The team sealed a surprising 3-1 win against the current title holders and have ended up their winless streak.
Rio Ave might be unbeaten in the league as of now. Against any mid-table squad it might have meant something but this Sunday they are pitted against none other than the Archbishops.
