Our prediction for this Taca de Portugal match:
Braga and Santa Clara go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Braga in the Taca de Portugal quarter-finals. Braga continue with their old habit of producing much better displays at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their eighth consecutive win on home soil. Carlos Carvalhal’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and seeing that they have slim chances of winning the Primeira Liga trophy, home win should be considered.
Santa Clara, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Famalicao, with the team beating Rio Ave on the road in their last league match. Anyhow, Braga are more of a team than Santa Clara, and we predict that the hosts are going to book their place in the Portuguese Cup semis. Rui Fonte and Francisco Moura remain on the sidelines for the hosts.
