Moreirense vs Braga: Match Preview and Team News

Moreirense

Moreirense will have to take the result against Santa Clara with a pinch of salt. The team did manage to come back twice in the match, but the inability to shut out the opposition is costing the club. Furthermore, Moreirense have to be worried given that Sporting Braga have come up with 11 goals in the last five matches against this team. Pedro Amador is the only player unavailable for manager João Henriques.

Braga
