It is going to be the clash of the titans when Sporting CP meets Braga at Jose Alvalade in yet another Primeira Liga encounter on Saturday as both teams are backed by a winning streak in the campaign, as of late in their schedule this season.
With an unbeaten record in the league so far this season, Sporting will return home on the back of a 1-2 win on the road against Belenenses last time out.
Meanwhile, just five points behind, Braga is with a two-game winning streak, following a 1-4 win on the road to Boavista in the previous league clash.
Sporting CP vs Braga Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
- The visitor is on a two-game winning streak in their meetings.
- The Archbishops have recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for Braga.
- Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.
Sporting CP vs Braga Prediction
Sporting CP has lost none of their Primeira Liga clashes this season until now. The host also enjoys eth ground advantage in the game which gives them a slight edge over the visitor.
Defeating Braga is easier said than done, as the host has lost their last two h2h meetings with the former in their schedule in 2020 itself. Besides, the Archbishops are also on a winning streak.
Both teams have been stingy in conceding goals, and this suggests we can expect a low-scoring affair at Lisbon despite both teams averaging at least 2 goals per game in the campaign.
With their scoring spree and winning streak, both teams are likely to find the back of the net in ninety minutes during the Saturday clash. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters.
In addition to that, there is a good chance that the match would either end in a tight 2-1 scoreline or with lesser goals than that. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option in the encounter.
