Boavista vs Braga – Liga NOS : Boavista didn’t start the season very well but everything changed with the arrival of Jorge Simão
That has put Boavista playing good football
And has made them get some important results, such as the 2-1 win at home against Benfica, that gave the group a lot of confidence, as well as other wins against Estoril or Paços de Ferreira (on the last round) for example.
Boavista is a team that has conditions to have a relaxed campaign and well within what are the team’s objectives.
On their last home match, they have lost 1-3 to Sporting, on a match where they couldn’t impose themselves against one of the best Portuguese teams.
Braga is a well-organized team, with good players, that is making a campaign within what was expected from them this season, being on the European qualification zone.
Braga has been the 4th greatest force in Portugal for a while now, but they have struggled to finish ahead of the Big 3 and consequentially fight for the title, something that their fans and president ambition, but are still far from getting it.
Braga is coming off positive results, winning 3 of their last 4 matches in the league, with the other match being a loss on their trip to Madeira to face Marítimo. Braga intends to get some points again at Estádio do Bessa, where they usually have reasons to smile.
Boavista vs Braga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I expect a somewhat intense encounter but not always pretty between these two teams. Boavista at home is a complicated team to beat and they even defend well.
Their manager knows Braga well, because he managed that team last season, where he didn’t have a successful stay.
Braga is an interesting team, that slipped up recently on the League Cup, although that shouldn’t affect them heading into this match.
I think we’ll have a balanced match, very split, maybe with Braga having a slight advantage, but the low number of goals should prevail until the end and I believe there is value betting on the Under 2.5 Goals in this match.
