Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Dr. Magalhaes Pessoa when Braga and Benfica face each other in the Taca da Liga semis. Braga are on a quest to defend their League Cup title, but they face a difficult task in Wednesday’s clash against Benfica. Carlos Carvalhal’s troops aim to bounce back from the Primeira Liga loss to Ferreira, but they will have to do it without injured duo Fonte – Moura. Ruiz and Horta should be deployed up front in the 4-4-2 formation.
The Eagles, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous five games in all competitions. The capital club defeated Vitoria Guimaraes on penalties in the quarter-finals, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Braga. A close encounter is on the cards at Estadio Dr. Magalhaes Pessoa, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Experienced defender Andre Almeida remains on the sidelines with injury for the visitors.
