We will visit the Portuguese top tier league this week to see a match between the 5th placed Vitória de Guimarães and the 6th placed Braga. We are expecting a close game but we believe that the visitors have a slight advantage.
Vitória de Guimarães got off on the wrong foot with the new campaign but they have managed to get back on track. Having got a draw and a loss at the beginning, they compensated for these losses by winning two games in a row. However, they have serious problems in the offensive end. They have scored only twice in four rounds and these goals came against some of the mediocre teams in this campaign; namely Boavista and Paços de Ferreira.
Braga, on the other hand, had also a disappointing start. They were defeated 3-1 by Porto in the opening round and got another loss against Santa Clara in the following week at home. However, they reminded us why they finished this league in the 3rd place in the last season by defeating Tondela with 4 goals to nil and getting another decisive win against Nacional in the last round.
To our minds, Braga are the better team and this is actually proved by the H2H records. In the 6 meetings these two teams had, Braga won 5 times. The other match ended in a draw. We also believe that Guimarães will have a hard time converting the goal chances they will have in this match-up; therefore, our favorites to win this game are Braga. All in all, it is safe to say that there are 3/10 chances for Braga to win with +0 Asian Handicap. In case of a draw, the stake will be refunded.
