Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Braga play host to Moreirense to their Estadio Municipal de Braga in what is expected to be an interesting Liga Portugal game. The Reds are eager to keep their Champions League hopes alive and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Moreirense. Both Simon Banza and Sikou Niakate are on international duty, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Os Verdes e Brancos, on the other hand, did well to beat Famalicao at home thanks to Maracas’ goal at the weekend, but given their poor display in a 5-0 loss at Porto, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s encounter. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Braga. You should know that Braga emerged triumphant in each of the previous eight meetings between the two sides in all competitions.
