Portimonense welcomes Sporting Braga

Portimonense welcomes Sporting Braga in a game from the 17th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Here are our predictions football 1×2 for this clash.

Portimonense are having an okay season so far. They are currently 8th in the league standings with 23 points won so far and a record of 7 wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five fixtures in the league Portimonense won three times, but also suffered two defeats against Porto and Maritimo.

It was not a good day against Maritimo at the Estadio dos Barreiros. Edgar Costa and Jorge Correa gave Maritimo a good lead. Paulinho scored once for the visitors, but they didn’t have more time for a better reaction.

Before this defeat against Maritimo, Portimonense enjoyed three consecutive wins against Vitoria Setubal, Feirense and Benfica.

Sporting Braga on the other hand are doing very well so far. They are currently 2nd in the league standings with 36 points. Their record in the league shows 11 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats. In their last five games they won four times and suffered only one defeat against Benfica.

In their last fixture Braga enjoyed a tough, but important 1-0 win over Boavista at home. Ricardo Horta scored the winner in the game after 25 minutes of playing. Abel Ferreira’s team had even more chances to score, but in the end Horta’s game was enough for the win.

At this moment Sporting Braga are 6 points behind the leader Porto and they have one point advantage in front of the 3rd Benfica. If they manage to finish at least 2nd in the league, for Braga this would mean a qualification for the Champions League.

That’s our predictions football 1×2 for the Primeira Liga clash between Portimonense and Sporting Braga. We wish you good luck!
