In this game it is possible to decide who wins group A of the League Cup. If Braga wins, they are almost guaranteed to be in the semi-finals. It is a very important game for Braga because they can qualify and they want to beat Marítimo because in the last game they drew 2-2.
Braga has been a fickle team this season. But it seems that it is getting more constant in terms of results and performances. It is important for the team to win to continue in this victorious form to give players more confidence. It is possible that Sá Pinto put the best players on the field to face Marítimo. In this last league cup game against Penafiel, the team played well and was very effective in the opportunities they had. Braga has to improve its organized attack to score goals for Marítimo. Possible Eleven: Mateus, Esgaio, Pablo, Viana, Sequeira, João Palhinha, Fransergio, André Horta, Ricardo Horta, Galeno, and Paulinho.
Marítimo has confirmed 4 absences due to national teams, Maeda (Japan), Zainadine (Mozambique), Nanu (Guinea-Bissau), and Amir (Iran), 4 players who are usually in the early eleven. I believe it will have a negative impact on the team. Maritimo is virtually out of this competition so their need to win is low and it is possible that Nuno Manta will save some players. Marítimo will surely try to understand Braga through counterattacks and set pieces to try to score goals. If Braga is strong in the defensive transition has every possibility to control the Maritime. Possible eleven: Charles, Bebeto, Kerkez, Grolli, Ruben Fernandes, Edgar Costa, Bambock, René, Correa, R. Pinho, and Getterson.
I believe Braga will win this match and confirm their presence in the League Cup semi-finals. Braga has a better team and better players while Marítimo will have some important absences in team performance.
