The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Braga win at half-time and full-time

Sporting Braga are a very strong team when it comes to home games. The back-to-back losses have principally occurred in away games which is not a strength of the team. At home, Braga have picked up four wins and a draw in the last five games across all competitions. Belenenses are in a spot of bother even if their away form does not suggest the same. The heavy losses have put pressure on the wafer thin confidence levels of the team.

Total goals over 2.5

The last two games at the Estádio Municipal de Braga have produced less than 2.5 goals. However, Belenenses are so poor at the back that Braga can once again expect a goal fest. Braga have witnessed three out of the last five matches for Belenenses finish with 2.5 goals – including the 7-0 loss against Benfica.

Both teams to score – no

Belenenses have not scored in the last three league outings. They are one of the poorer teams in the division and Sporting Braga would be keen on picking up a third clean sheet at home in the last four matches.

Braga vs Belenenses: Can Belenenses cause further damage to Braga?

Braga

Sporting Braga have had a poor set of results over the last few weeks. The likelihood of keeping up in the title race is effectively over with the team now 13 points behind leaders Porto and Sporting Lisbon. However, Europe hopes are still on but manager Carlos Carvalhal will be without a large contingent of players. Nuno Sequeira, Castro, Victor Oliveira, David Carmo, Galeno, and Vítor Tormena are out due to injuries.

Belenenses

The recent defeat in the league have pushed Belenenses back to the bottom. Just a few weeks ago, the team appeared to be on its way out of the bottom three. Belenenses are still without many key players coming into the game. Manager Filipe Cândido is sweating on the fitness of Safira, while Chico Teixeira and Rafael Camacho are definitely ruled out.
