Win for Sporting Braga

The recent form of Braga does not make for a good reading with three losses in the recent four games. However, Arouca may not be the team to exploit this poor form considering that they regularly struggle against Braga. Braga have avoided a defeat against Arouca since 2014. Despite the recent poor form and playing away from home, the visitors should pick up three points.

Total goals over 2.5

The last few games have witnessed Braga struggled to score with the same level of intensity and creativity that they displayed in the early part of the campaign. Arouca, though, are of the poorest teams in the defensive sense with the team conceding 25 goals already.

Goals from both teams – yes

Arouca have witnessed goals at both ends in five consecutive matches. In fact, in the last 10 games involving the home team, there have been goals at both ends in eight matches. Despite their recent poor form, Braga could end up with goals in the game.

Arouca vs Braga: Match Preview and Team News

Arouca

Arouca are also staring at the face of relegation despite being closer to the mid-table places. This is because their lead over the bottom three places is not very substantial. There have also been very few opportunities for Arouca to improve form. Fernando Castro and José Manuel Velázquez are out due to injury, while Leandro Silva and Eboue Kouassi are suspended.

Braga

The recent run of results has left Braga in a significant spot of bother. The club might still be occupying European places, but the threat from Estoril and Portimonense is growing ever higher. The visitors will be without a huge contingent of players like Castro, Galeno, Victor Oliveira, Nuno Sequeira, and David Carmo due to injury. Andre Horta and Abel Ruiz are suspended for the game.
