Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
All eyes will be on Estadio do Dragao when Porto kick off the new Primeira Liga campaign with a match against Braga. The Dragons impressed in the last season finale, with the team putting an end to Benfica’s dominance in the Portuguese top flight. The reigning champions aim to make a flying start to the season, but Saturday’s showdown will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Porto chiefs did well to sign the likes of Evanilson, Sanusi, Martinez, Carraca, Mehdi Taremi, and Claudio Ramos in the summer transfer window, but Fabio Silva, Jorge Fernandes, and Andre Pereira are no longer part of the team. Vitinha joined Wolverhampton on loan. Braga, on the other hand, have been trying to close the gap between Porto and Benfica. Os Arsenalistas aim to claim a major scalp in the season opener, but seeing that pacey winger signed for Barcelona in the summer transfer window, home win should be considered.
