Sporting CP win

Sporting CP will have the psychological edge from the victory in the Super Cup in the first week of August. Even though this was a close match back then, Sporting CP were able to get a slight edge. This will once again be the case in this meeting even if Braga have home advantage. The fixture has turned out to be rather productive for Sporting CP with four consecutive wins – even when they have been reduced to 10 men in two of those games.

Total goals more than 2.5

The contests between Braga and Sporting CP have regularly been quite tight and dull games with not too many goals. For example, the last six meetings between these two clubs have produced over 2.5 goals only on two occasions. However, the increased firepower for the visitors and defending champions is likely to enhance this game’s goal output.

Goals from both teams – yes

Braga have been unable to score in three out of the last four games against Sporting CP, but the defending Portuguese cup champions did find the back of the net in the Super Cup meeting. Sporting CP have started the season with a lot of goals, but they might end up conceding again against Braga.
