Braga vs FC Porto Prediction & Betting tips
With Braga against Porto, another top game will take place in the Primeira Liga on the final day. However, at least with the guests the air is a bit out. Porto has been the new champion for some time, which is why there are no season goals in league operations.
The situation is somewhat different for the home side: The Braguistas would like to take Sporting’s third place. This would save the exhausting qualification phase for the Europa League and start directly in the group phase of the competition.
However, the hosts have been waiting for the next win for two rounds, even though it was only against teams from the table cellar. Only thanks to the parallel weak phase of the Lisbon team is it still possible to reach third place. For the match between Braga and Porto, the tip is aimed at fewer than four goals.
Further analyzes and knowledgeable predictions for the exciting last match day in the top Portuguese division are available in the category of international football tips on the betting basis.
For four rounds of games, the fourth coach has been in charge of sports at the Minhotos this season. Artur Jorge, who like his short-term predecessor Custodio, has no experience in the professional area now has responsibility on the sidelines. Previously, he was in charge of the club’s youth team. It remains to be seen whether it will be better with him than with Custodio.
The Arsenalistas started under Jorge furios and only scored 4: 0 against Aves and 5: 1 at Ferreira, but recently the performances have already dropped again. A draw against Belenenses and an embarrassing defeat at Tondela can be seen as the latest results.
It is obvious that the team lacks the necessary consistency for higher positions due to the numerous coaching changes this season. As is so often the case in recent years, it will only be enough for fourth place in the Primeira Liga. The season was nevertheless successful, as the league cup was won last January.
The opponent was also Porto at the time and, admittedly, the victory was a happy one thanks to a very late goal in injury time.
In the upcoming match, Paulinho in particular will be motivated. The best scorer in the Arcebispos jersey still has a personal title in sight: With 17 goals, he is only one goal less than Pizzi from Benfica in second place in the scorer ranking.
Porto initially made a weak restart. So they started with a bankruptcy at the newcomer Famalicao and in the third game after the resumption of play it got really bitter because only a draw jumped out of the completely beaten table bottom Aves.
But the eternal rival Benfica could not use the slip and afterwards Porto did not show any more nakedness. The new champion currently has six wins. No less than 3.5 goals were scored per game. At the same time, the defense was very stable and collected four clean sheets.
One reason for the upswing is the return of Telles in defense, who was blocked in the two weak games against Aves and Famalicao. In addition, Moussa Marega is currently turning up the pace in the attack: The attacker from Mali has scored in five of the last six games and is now the best goalkeeper in the Porto jersey.
Against the background of the current constitution, the team of coach Sergio Conceicao can have legitimate hopes for the home double. The cup final against Benfica is due in about a week. An appointment that is certainly more present in the minds of the players compared to the upcoming task against Braga.
