On this day there will be the “Derby do Minho” at the “D. Afonso Henriques” but without fans, who are one of the great strengths of the home team, Vitória de Guimarães. In the last 4 games Guimarães scored seven points, scored two goals, and conceded just one goal. Braga in the last four league games scored six points, scored seven goals, and conceded five goals.
This will be the second game for the new Guimarães coach, João Henriques, who debuted at Boavista’s home and won 1-0. Again, against Boavista, he played a bad game and was lucky to beat Boavista. It seems that the new coach has not had or has not yet had a positive impact on the performance and mental aspect of the players. So far, and in my opinion, Guimarães has not yet played a single game in which they had played well, they deserved the victory, which shows the weak collective and individual performance at this moment. Possible eleven: Bruno Varela, Silvio, Quattara, Jorge Fernandes, Sulliman, Agu, André André, Rochina, Edwards, Quaremsa, and Bruno Duarte.
Braga are in a better moment in terms of game quality than Guimarães. It is a team that has shown good offensive variability, both showing quality in the organized attack and also in the counter-attack. They have been an effective team in the indoor and outdoor games. The only negative point may be the midweek game for the Europa League which may cause some tiredness, but Braga has a good squad and should not be a problem for Sunday’s game. Another good news for Braga is the possible return of Gaitan. Possible eleven: Matheus, Sequeira, Esgaio, Bruno Viana, David Carmo, Fransergio, Castro, Ricardo Horta, Galeno, Iuri Medeiros, and Paulinho.
For me, Braga must be favorite for this game. Braga are in a better moment, they have better players, they have a better team, they have a better bench and they have a better coach. Guimarães is in a less good time and will play without their fans. And If you also want to place this bet with the best odds, register at the best betting software.
