Vitoria de Guimaraes vs Braga Prediction

Guimaraes impressed their home crowd by holding the mighty Arsenal to a 1-1 draw the last match-day, in the Europa. Meanwhile, Braga was completely undone on the road by Boavista, with a one-sided 2-0 scorecard.

This coming match-day, Guimaraes will severely lean on their home advantage to secure the win. They have lost just twice here, in their preceding twenty attempts, and one of these had come against Frankfurt, in the Europa. They also had a separate four-game, and five-match winning streaks in the midst of this stretch as well.

Going on, Braga is winless in their last two overall fixtures, and have so far recorded a single victory on the road in the Primeira Liga. They even failed to trump the new addition, Gil Vicente, at their home.

Taking these observations into account, anticipate Guimaraes to avoid the loss at the least this weekend.

However, considering the phenomenal form Braga had shown in previous h2h clashes, and the struggles of Vitoria in overall games, coupled with the offensive stats that the former has displayed before their off-form kicked in, a clean sheet looks unlikely for Vitoria.
