FC Porto vs Braga Prediction & Tips
Saturday is a big game day in the North of Portugal, with FC Porto hosting Sporting de Braga. The match starts scheduled for 21:30, at Estádio do Dragão. The national champions enter the new season with the aim of revalidating the title, but receive a Minho formation that wants to do better than the third place won last season. The dragons have so far maintained the structure of the team from the past season, with names such as Iranian Taremi, Brazilian Evanilson, Nigerian Zaidu, among others, in order to add more quality to the squad. In the pre-season, the blues and whites won five of their six games, with the only defeat to happen against Oliveirense, of the second level, by 0-1. Braga, on the other hand, are betting heavily this season, with the arrival of coach Carlos Carvalhal and players like Nico Gaitán, Iuri Medeiros, André Castro, among others. In the eight games played during the pre-season, the Minho lost only one (against Benfica, 2-1), won four and drew three.
