Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Braga and Casa Pia face each other at Estadio Municipal de Braga on day 12 of the new Primeira Liga campaign. Braga are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are eager to melt Benfica’s advantage in the standings. With no fresh injury worries to report, Artur Jorge is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Os Galos.
Casa Pia, on the other hand, are one of the biggest surprises of the new campaign, with the team sitting in 4th place ahead of Sunday’s clash. The newcomers did well to beat Rio Ave at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Braga. A close encounter is on the horizon, and we believe that gamblers from all four corners of the world can find value betting on draw. There are no fresh selection worries in the away side.
