Tondela vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 20 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Estádio João Cardoso (Tondela).
The Archbishops are currently enjoying a three-game unbeaten run. But the recent draw to Belenenses has prevented them from getting further up the table. They could have replaced Sporting in third place thereby getting a chance for Europa League next year.
The visitors have been losing consecutive matches in recent weeks. They have no wins in the last six match days which include 5 defeats. This will adversely affect their hopes of staying in the Primeira Liga for yet another season.
Currently they are equal on points with Setubal who is in the relegation zone.
Tondela vs Braga: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Braga has a six-game winning streak going on against this opposition.
- Four of those matches had more than 2.5 goals in total.
- The last time Tondela won this fixture was back in May 2017.
- The visitors have won in three of their four visits to this ground.
- The hosts are on a three-match losing streak in the league at present.
- Braga is currently on a three-game unbeaten run in league matches.
Tondela vs Braga: Prediction
Braga is on prime form right now. The latest defeat of Sporting means they have a chance to get the third place if they win the remaining games. From 16 matches on the road they have 8 wins and 6 defeats.
The last away game against Ferreira was their first win in four previous attempts. But they have always been dominant in recent meetings with this opposition. So we can see the giants go home with three points in this match.
Even though the visitors are good at scoring, they have been prone to mistakes at the back. Especially in away matches they have conceded more than at home.
The major portion of the goals that they have given away came in matches at this ground. The hosts have found the back of the net against toppers Porto in one recent fixture.
If they could score past the best defence in the country, they could repeat it against Braga for sure. So, I am backing the visitors to win with both teams scoring.
