Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Monday’s football game at Estadio de Sao Luis pits together Farense and Braga, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. Farense’s main goal is to secure the Primeira Liga survival, while Braga are eager to represent Portugal in the Champions League next season. The visitors aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Benfica, but they will have to do it without suspended midfielder Fransergio.
Farense, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Boavista, and they managed to get one. The relegation strugglers regained a much-needed confidence, but they will have a mountain to climb in Monday’s clash against Braga, who are eyeing their 8th away win of the season. Goalkeeper Rafael Defendi remains on the sidelines for the hosts with a broken leg. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Braga aim to climb to the Champions League berth.
Highlighted Player (Djalma ):
Born in Luanda, Angola on May 30, 1987, Djalma Campos is a forward who plays for Farense in Primeira Liga. Djalma played for the likes of Loures, CAC Pontinha, and Alverca during his youth career before joining Maritimo B in 2006.
The Angola international then played for the Maritimo senior team, scoring 19 goals in 96 appearances for O Maior das Ilhas. In May 2011, Djalma signed a deal with the famous Portuguese club Porto, but he scored no more than one goal in 14 appearances in Primeira liga for the Dragons.
The pacey attacker played for the likes of Kasimpasa, Konyaspor, Genclerbirligi, PAOK, and Alanyaspor as well before joining his current club Farense. His primary position is right winger, but he is used as both left winger and attacking midfielder as well. Djalma has a dual citizenship (Angola/Portugal), and his contract with Farense should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Braga):
Braga are a Portuguese club that have always been in the shadow of Primeira Liga giants Porto, Benfica and Sporting. Os Minhotos were founded on 19 January, 1921 and they originally played in green and white kits. After the World War II they changed their kits to red and they have been wearing red shirts and white shorts ever since.
Braga play their home games at Estadio Municipal de Braga, the stadium that was opened in December, 2003. Os Minhotos have yet to win the Primeira Liga title, but they finished the 2009/2010 campaign in second position in the standings, just five points behind champions Benfica.
In 2011 Braga participated in the Europa League final, but fellow Portuguese outfit Porto proved to be a big catch for Os Minhotos. Anyhow, that is regarded as the club’s biggest success. Vitoria de Guimaraes are considered Braga’s bitter rivals and the two teams face each other in the Minho derby.
