Sporting Braga to win the game

Sporting Braga enter into the match on the back of a decent run with most of their successes this season coming in away matches. The last away success for Sporting Braga was more than a month ago against Moreirense. However, the visitors will be counting on their good form against Santa Clara after having picked up a victory in four out of the last six games.

Total goals over 2.5

The total goals expected from this match could be relatively higher than unusual, as the visitors come into the game with a decent scoring record of nine from six matches. At the same time, Santa Clara have been woeful at the back and it is demonstrated by their defence shipping 14 goals already this season. Santa Clara have the second worst defensive record so far.

Goals from both teams – yes

Even though Sporting Braga are fighting closer to the champions and Porto, they have been conceding more goals than expected. The team has allowed almost a goal per game so far. This will provide confidence to Santa Clara, who have scored in all of the home matches this season apart from the loss against Benfica.

Santa Clara vs Braga: Match Preview and Team News

Santa Clara

Santa Clara are in a huge spot of bother going with their recent form. The results at home, however, do not look so bad with only one defeat – against table leaders Benfica – in the last five matches across all competitions. Santa Clara have to be prepared for the unavailability of Costinha and Rafael Ramos, while Mikel Villanueva is rated doubtful for the game.

Braga

Sporting Braga have every reason to be concerned about the upcoming trip to face Santa Clara. The club’s recent form does not look the greatest and they have dropped points in away matches of late. Furthermore, Braga will also have to do without David Carmo, Castro, and Abel Ruiz for the game.
