Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Braga will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Gil Vicente when they take on Moreirense in the Primeira Liga round 16. Braga aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Moreirense. Antonio Salvador’s troops have been having their ups and downs on the road this season, with the team winning four and losing four games, but they are surely capable of beating Os verdes e brancos behind closed doors.
Moreirense head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Portimonense where Vitoria failed to convert a penalty in the fourth minute of the stoppage time. Anyhow, Braga are more of a team than Moreirense, and we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Monday’s football match. In their last encounter in Moreira de Conegos Braga defeated Moreirense 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Nuno ):
After spending his youth career at the likes of Buarcos, Naval, Benfica, and Academica, Pedro Nuno continued playing for the Briosa at the senior level. Pedro Nuno scored five goals in 25 appearances for Academica in the league, which persuaded Benfica chiefs to sign him on November 28, 2016.
The Portuguese midfielder, though, was immediately sent on loan to Tondela, where he scored four goals in 45 appearances for the club. In 2018 Pedro Nuno moved to Moreirense, and he has been playing for Os verdes e brancos ever since. He made his Primeira Liga debut with Moreirense on August 11, 2019, in a 3-1 away loss to Sporting Braga.
Pedro Nuno was born in Buarcos, Portugal, on January 13, 1995, and he wears the number 27 jersey at Moreirense. His primary position is left winger, but he is used as both second striker and attacking midfielder. Pedro Nuno has yet to make his debut with the Portugal senior team.
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.
