Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Vitoria Guimaraes will be looking to extend their winning run at home to five games when they welcome Sporting Braga at their Estadio Dom Alfonso Henriques. Guimaraes continue with their habit of producing much better displays at home than on the travels, but beating Braga is easier said than done.
The two teams who represent Portugal in the Europa League this season seem to be evenly matched at the moment; therefore, we predict that they are going to share the spoils on Matchday 11. Falaye Sacko is sidelined with injury for the hosts, but Ivo Vieira’s men, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home, are surely capable of grabbing something from the match. Sporting Braga played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Famalicao at the weekend, and they are likely to share the spoils with Vitoria Guimaraes as well.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Henrique):
Pedro Henrique is a Brazilian defender who plays for Vitoria de Guimaraes in Primeira Liga. Born in Goiania on December 18, 1992, Pedrao is a product of Goias football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Brazilian club before joining Cruzeiro-Poa.
Pedro Henrique played for the likes of Trindade and Aparecidense as well before joining Goias in the 2013/2014 season. In 2015 he moved to Portugal, signing a deal with Guimaraes where he established himself as a first-team regular.
Thanks to his brilliant performances Pedrao was given captaincy and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for OS Vimaranenses on December 9, 2018 in a 3-2 win over Rio Ave. His main position in centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well. His preferred foot is left and he has a contract with Guimaraes which is set to expire on June 30, 2022.
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.
