Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After suffering a heavy 4-1 loss to Porto at the weekend, Braga will be looking to return to winning ways when they face Chaves in the Portugal Primeira Liga round 9. The home side are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in front of home fans, and also they managed to keep clean sheet in each of their last three games at Estadio Municipal de Braga. Simon Banza is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line as he has scored five goals and assisted one more so far this term. Matheus Lima serves his ban against Chaves.
Flavienses, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run, and are desperate to grab something from this match. However, the home side have won each of their last five head-to-head encounters with Chaves, with the visitors scoring no more than one goal in those encounters, and taking everything into account, anything but a comfortable win for the home side will be a major surprise. Euller will probably miss the match and should be the only absentee in the visiting team.
