Braga vs Maritimo Prediction
Braga has secured their position in the table as they are 6 points clear from the fifth placed Gil Vicente. They have collected 10 points from the five recent league outings and are massive favorites going into this tie.
Their impressive run at home adds more to the debate. They have won 5, drew 3 and lost only one of their 9 league home affairs this season. They have scored 18 goals with an average of 2 goals per game at home.
They are not facing the weakest team of the league. Maritimo is having a decent form so far but that will count little when they faces Braga on road.
They have only won two of their total 9 games on road. They lost 5 over the course of these games. They have shipped 19 goals which is more than 2 goals per game which is definitely not good.
This is why we see this match as an ideal opportunity for Sporting Braga to snatch a four game unbeaten thread and return to winning ways after a stalemate with a potentially convincing victory in Braga.
