Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Braga will be looking to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Porto when they take on Santa Clara in their first home game of the season. Os Arcebispos failed to impress in the opening match of the season, and, to make things even worse for the team, experienced defender Silva was sent off due to unsportsmanlike conduct. Braga, though, are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and, as a result, bookies see them as favourites to win Friday’s football match.
Portuguese attacker Rui Fonte is likely to miss the match with injury, while aforementioned defender Silva is definitely out of contention through suspension. Santa Clara, on the other hand, kicked off the new Primeira Liga campaign with a 2-0 win over Maritimo, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in their first away match of the season.
