The Archbishops have been enjoying a spectacular run if form of late. They won eight and drew one of last nine league outings, a streak which includes the 1-0 win over the likes of Sporting CP in late-March. Abel Ferreira truly has some in-form high-quality attackers in his ranks, led by Wilson Eduardo and Dyego Sousa who have both been thriving up front lately. Team’s top scorer is, however, a midfielder. His name is Ricardo Horta and he has 11 goals to his name so far in the season. This trio inspired the phenomenal streak for Braga and they take the credits for the fact the Archbishops bagged seven goals in last two league games against Feirense and Pacos Ferreira.

Sporting Braga vs Maritimo: Head-to-head

Braga only lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of their 49th clash with Maritimo.

O Maior das Ilhas won the lone H2H meeting in this term, 1-0 at Estadio dos Barreiros.

At home, Braga won 10 and lost only 4 of 23 ties against Maritimo.

Sporting Braga vs Maritimo: Prediction

We wrote much about Braga and their strikers above, but the preview would definitely not be complete without the name of Joel. Maritimo’s forward has been just spectacular in recent weeks. He netted at least a goal in each of last five appearances, making it as many as seven in the process. On the other side, Daniel Ramos’ men did conceded loads as well in recent outings, at least one in last six in Primeira Liga.

Given the superb attacking form both teams showed in the last couple of rounds, we just have to back three or more goals in the game at the odds of 1.66. Braga to net two or more goals should be a banker bet at 1.44.
