Sporting de Braga and Desportivo de Chaves feature in one of the most interesting matches of the round in Liga NOS…
The hosts are living a moment of increased confidence, with their performances fulfilling the highest expectations of their fans.
Despite the home loss, in the Europa League, against Ludogorets, the side managed by Abel Ferreira is showing ability to compete at the level of the top teams of this club.
For the visitors, this is a moment of growth and evolution. Luís Castro has felt some difficulties on the beginning of the season, but that situation was superseded.
Even with a new tough period on their schedule, Chaves can present a different type of answers at the Municipal de Braga.
Sporting de Braga have kept their winning streak in Liga NOS on their trip to Moreira de Cónegos, which is now at 4 straight wins in a row.
Besides that, they haven’t conceded any goals on the last two matches, against Estoril and Moreirense, having scored 7 goals as well.
Against Chaves, things might be different, but after having watched the match at Alvalade, last week, Abel Ferreira’s players will be thinking about battering Chaves once again.
Braga vs Chaves – Betting Tip and Prediction:
That’s the match that Desportivo de Chaves will try to forget. They had a 4-match unbeaten streak as well, between Liga NOS and Taça de Portugal, that was broken on the trip to Lisbon.
Sporting needed to relieve some pressure due to poor results and Chaves ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Now, in Braga, Luís Castro’s strategy should point towards the same model, playing in the eye of Braga, but trying to learn from last week’s mistakes.
The return of Domingos Duarte and Matheus Pereira should also help to prepare a team more consistent considering the demand of this encounter.
This is a match that is expected to be well contested, although the favouritism is still on the side of Braga.
