Estoril vs Braga: Counting towards the Liga NOS’ 25th round, Estoril and Sporting de Braga will take the field
The start of the match is scheduled for 20:30 on Saturday, at Estoril’s Stadium.
Estoril comes into this round in 16th place of Liga NOS, with 21 points, and currently they are only 1 place above the relegation spots.
On the last round, they were defeated in Chaves 2-0 and that was their 3rd straight loss.
With those 3 losses, things got tricky again for the side of Estoril, and they are probably forced to get some points here to try and escape those relegation spots.
As for Sporting de Braga, they have beaten Tondela at home 1-0 on the last round, confirming even further their 4th place in Liga NOS, with 52 points, and they are now chasing that 3rd place, which is currently only 7 points away from them.
Braga’s players are on an excellent moment of form, since the team was only defeated in one of the last 5 matches already played, when they went to France to face Marseille and lost 3-0 on the Europa League’s round of 32.
On their first meeting this season, Braga has completely crushed Estoril by 6-0, but now, a lot of things have changed, with every match being played and teams trying to get the highest amount points possible.
Estoril vs Braga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Honestly, I think that Braga might get the win here since on the last 5 matches that Estoril have played at home, they’ve won only twice and after the 11 matches that Braga played away from home, they’ve lost only 4 and drew 1.
Estoril has also only won 2 of their last 5 matches, losing the other 3, while Braga has won 4 of their last 5 matches.
On the head-to-head record between these two teams, Braga also has the advantage, with 4 wins and 1 draw, so my bet will be:
