Braga took 4th spot last season with 58 points and 54:35 goal difference in 34 games of the Primeira Liga. On top of that, the visitors managed to win Portuguese national cup as they beat Porto on penalty in the final. We should mention Braga changed their head coach this summer as Paulo Fonseca was replaced by José Peseiro. During their preseason Braga played 7 matches, recording 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat with 7:6 goal difference.
Remarkably, Benfica won their last 4 head-to-heads against Braga with 11:2 goal difference. We expect the hosts to be victorious as they are just more skilled and experienced side and have great record against Braga.
Prediction for the match: Benfica to win.
