Boavista look to spoil Sporting Braga’s momentum at the business end of the season when they take on Carlos Carvalhal’s game at home this weekend.

Boavista vs Braga – Best Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Boavista managed a first league victory of 2022 by beating Estoril 3-2 away from home. The hosts were in the lead after just six minutes through Bernardo Vital, but the form of players like Musa brought Boavista back in contention. A late goal from Luis Santos turned out to be decisive in this fixture. Braga’s finishing qualities once again let them down, as the team only managed a goalless draw with Santa Clara.

Win for Sporting Braga

Sporting Braga will be keen on avenging the 5-1 loss inflicted by Boavista in a Taca de Portugal meeting back in December. This happens to of the few instances when Boavista have been able to beat Sporting Braga. Typically, this fixture has been an even contest with no team managing to get dominance over one another. However, Braga’s desire to remain in touch with the top three might just get them to a narrow win.

Total goals over 2.5

Boavista have been conceding too many goals that will put them on the back foot when it comes to finding a way to beat Braga for the second consecutive game. The last four games between these two clubs have produced more than 2.5 goals. This was largely down to Boavista’s poor defensive performances.

Both teams to score – yes

Braga are one of the top scorers in the league with 40 goals while Boavista are one of the top scorers in the bottom half of the table with 30 goals from 24 games. The hosts are especially poor at the back and this is a strong factor behind expecting plenty of goals in this game.

Boavista vs Braga: Primeira Liga Preview and Team News

Boavista

Boavista have been able to put some distance between them and the relegation zone following the recent win over Estoril. The five-point advantage keeps Boavista with a decent amount of comfort, but manager Petit comes into the game without Pedro Malheiro due to knee surgery.

Braga

Braga manager Carlos Carvalhal has never been able to beat Petit in four matches. The 56-year-old will be hoping that this is the occasion when the tables turn. Braga, though, have to pick up a victory without Nuno Sequeira and Lucas Mineiro in the squad.
