Braga vs Belenenses – Liga NOS: Braga is one of the good teams of Portuguese football
That plays with a quality attacking style. At the start of the season, the team felt some difficulties, even on the initial rounds of the Europa League, where their exhibitions were very shaky and sometimes the results better than the exhibitions.
Braga advanced in 1st place on their Europa League’s group.
In the league, they are in 4th place with 28 points, 8 points behind the leaders FC Porto and Sporting.
Braga could get closer to those spots, but on the last round they lost 1-0 at Barreiros against Marítimo. They hadn’t lost for some time. At home they are strong, having 6 wins in 7 matches and only losing to FC Porto.
Belenenses is a reasonable team that intends to ensure they avoid relegation without major problems.
They got off to a shaky start in the league, but then they managed to balance it out. However, on the last rounds, the team has had some problems again and they haven’t won in 4 matches.
They were coming off 3 consecutive losses but then on the last round they managed to get a 1-1 draw on the reception to Paços de Ferreira.
Belenenses doesn’t seem to be a team for great achievements in my opinion. The roster seems to be sufficient to ensure maintenance,
but I wouldn’t say they can get much more than that, because I see breaches and weaknesses on this team who is managed by Domingos Paciência, on his return to a club he knows very well.
Braga vs Belenenses – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Braga lost on their latest league match, in Madeira, against Marítimo, on a match that had some controversy. Braga intends to return to victories and I believe they will confirm that victory here, in this match.
Belenenses is a relatively accessible team and in Braga they will struggle a lot.
The visitors will play without the ball for most of the match, while trying to defend and exploit the counter-attacks to surprise Braga.
Braga will surely force their way in to get the 3 points in this match, and after the loss in Madeira, I expect an authoritative reply, in their own style.
They have been pretty dominant at home and only Porto won at their stadium. Braga should win here.
