Porto victory

This has been an unusually tough fixture for Porto, who are without a win in three consecutive games against this opponent. Sporting Braga have had a day later to prepare for this encounter. Braga might have done so far this season, but they have suffered back-to-back away defeats – including the heavy loss against Benfica. Even though Porto have had some Champions League setbacks, they have plenty more quality than the opposition.

Total goals over 2.5

Porto have been involved in games with over 2.5 goals in all home matches this season apart from the 2-0 success over Belenenses. In fact, this is the only game since May to witness less than 2.5 goals. Sporting Braga have been through some big drubbings in the last few games and the team has looked shaky.

Evanilson to score anytime

Evanilson has been in excellent form when it comes to games at the Estadio Do Dragao. The Brazilian has managed to find the back of the net in just three league matches, but all of his three goals have been at home. In fact, Evanilson has produced excellent performances in the recent domestic games.

Porto vs Sporting Braga: Can Braga continue their good run against Porto?

Porto

Porto have experienced plenty of issues on the European front, but the team remains joint leaders in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Porto cannot afford to drop points as they do not have any buffer over joint leaders Sporting CP. Porto will be without Claudio Ramos, Francisco Conceição, Iván Marcano, and Pepê Aquino due to injury.

Sporting Braga

Sporting Braga are slowly catching up on the top three teams in the Primeira Liga. However, the team is also having to deal with a long list of injury and suspension related issues. Nuno Sequeira, Vítor Tormena, David Carmo, and Diogo Leite are unavailable due to injuries, while Lucas Minero is suspended for the match.
