Braga – Santa Clara Match Prediction | 29-10-2019 16:15

This game comes at the perfect time to get another, much needed-win. This season doesnt look like Bragas regular season, but we hope that they have cleaned up the mess and started to play like they used to. Their last loss came surprisingly in the fifth round against Setubal with 1:0. Their offense will have to produce more goals if they want to continue to play like this. As it was already said, they have 8 points from 7 games. That was a giant shock, so they had to react and adapt quickly. They did that and got back on track with 6 wins out of 8 matches later on.

After spending four seasons at Braga, Ahmed Hassan Koka joined Braga in 2015, signing a five-year deal with the Portuguese outfit. The Egyptian striker, who was born in Cairo on 5 March, 1993 made 23 league appearances for Braga in the 2015/2016 season, scoring 10 goals in the Primeira Liga. Ahmed Hassan won Taca de Portugal with Os Minhotos in 2016 and he started the title game against Porto.

Braga has been changeable all season long rivals with 8 points from 7 games and only 8 goals scored already. Bookmakers listed them as a huge favorite in this one, so if they manage to win, it will boost their belief that they can come back to the winning ways, after one of the slowest starts in recent years. An interesting fact is that they have only played 4 games in the last 16 years. This will be another match, which is good for their confidence. They havent played a lot of games throughout their history. In their Head-To-Head matches, we see around 3 goals scored almost every time. They have played 10 games, with Braga winning 6 and drawing three times. We can easily say that they dominated them, as Santa Clara managed to get a single win, so Braga is having a mental advantage before the game even begins in the first place.

They will have the same approach here, trying to steal some points. From this point of view, I dont see that happening any time soon, as Braga has finally picked up their form and is currently unbeaten in 8 consecutive matches. Are they going to do that? On the other side, Santa Claras quality is their team play, as every goal by them was scored by a different player. On the other side, I expect under 2.5 goals here, as Santa Clara isnt capable of scoring in this match.

Football

Braga claimed a 1-0 win against Santa Clara when the pair last met in January and following their European exploits, the hosts will be happy to repeat that feat this Sunday. Three of the last six meetings between these two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals and Braga have won three of their pairs last four encounters, so you can see why were backing a narrow win for the hosts this weekend.

Braga lost 3 of their last 5 matches before this match with Santa Clara.The attacking skills of Braga are not good. Braga is ranked on the 5th place in the standings with 54 points, 51 goals scored and 36 goals received in the last 36 leagueevents. They have failed to win 10 of their last 36 matches in Primeira Liga.In their last match they lost against Tondela.

There havent been many goals in Santa Claras recent league games and we dont expect there to be many on Monday night either. Were confident that under 2.5 goals will be produced in Mondays match and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 in favour of Braga. The hosts are the clear form favourites and have the home advantage but Santa Clara have started the season well and wont prove an easy nut to crack.

Os Acoreanos failed to score in previous two away games in the Portuguese top flight and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Bragas party at Estadio Municipal de Braga. Head coach Sa Pinto rested several first-team regulars in a 3-1 win over Leca in the Taca da Portugal, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Santa Clara. It has to be noted that Santa Clara defender Fabio Cardoso should recover in time to face the Braguistas.

Braga vs Santa Clara Prediction

Sporting Braga will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Portimonense when they welcome Santa Clara at Estadio Municipal de Braga on Monday evening. The Braguistas aim to keep on climbing the Primeira Liga standings and despite the fact that they head into the match following the Europa League clash against Besiktas, home win should be considered.

Braga has recently picked up their form, and players and fans alike will be wishing for the momentum to carry on. To help them further, the schedule allows them to enjoy the home advantage for the day, and moreover, at the same time take on a cavalry thats suffering on the road. The reason being, the team has fallen behind their anticipated targets, and theres quite some distance to cover at present.

Braga vs Santa Clara prediction comes before the Portuguese Primeira League eighth round matchup between these two teams. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. This game will be played on October 28th, at the Estadio Municipal de Braga in Braga, Portugal. Braga is listed as a strong favorite in this one, which is something we all should agree with.

The performances of both clubs also supports our prediction of a 1-0 win for the hosts this Monday, as Braga have scored in each of their last six matches while Santa Clara have failed to score in four of their last five away games in all competitions, and under 2.5 goals were produced in five of Santa Claras last six matches.

They will try to make a potential surprise here, as they have nothing to lose. Currently, they have 11 points, so this season has started in a way nobody predicted. They play their games on a small volume of goals. For now, I dont see that happening, with Bragas motivation before this match being pretty high. We can see that in the fact, that they have a goal ratio of 4 scored and 4 goals conceded so far. Playing against Braga in Portuguese league is always the toughest match, so a team of Santa Claras quality will try to stop them and get a point at least.
