Braga to avoid defeat

Braga are coming off a 1:0 loss against Gil Vicente, however, that was their only loss in six games. Carlos Carvalhal’s men won three of their last six games, with two draws; they’ll be going up against a Monaco side that have won just one of their last seven games. As a matter of fact, Monaco have lost four of their last five games, including the reverse fixture of this tie. Considering the form of both teams, we do not think that Monaco will win this match.

Someone will fail to score a goal

Monaco have not just found it difficult to win games, they’ve also struggled in front of goal recently; Philippe Clement’s men did not score in their last two games. It’s fair to point out that Monaco’s games tend to be one-sided when it comes to goals; at least one side failed to score in all of their last three games. On the other hand, Braga have been very solid defensively; they kept four clean sheets in their last six games, allowing just two goals in that stretch. Conversely, Braga failed to score in three of their last seven games; at least one side blanked in six of Braga’s last seven games. With this in mind, at least one of these teams should keep a clean sheet.

Goals will be in short supply

We’ve already pointed out that Braga allowed just two goals in their last six games; we should also mention that they scored just six goals in their last seven games. Braga’s games have mostly been on the low-scoring side; all of their last seven games went below the 2.5 goal mark. Similarly, Monaco have had their fair share of low-scoring games; their last three, and seven of their last nine games went under 2.5. On that note, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this game.
