Portimonense S.C. welcome the visitors S.C. Braga in the Portuguese Primeira Liga – Round 17. The match will be held on Thursday, January 10th, at the Estadio Municipal de Portimao (Portimao).
The very frugal, by the Portuguese standards, Portimonense S.C. team have never been brilliant in their history. Mostly, they competed in different lowly leagues, including the Segunda Division B, the third-highest division of the Portuguese league systems. Likewise, in the present Primeira run, the team claim for a middle-class status as a maximum thus far, sitting 8th in the table with 7 losses in 16 rounds held. That said, these defeats were not only to the toppers like Porto (1:4), but to far less serious opponents like Boavista (0:2 failure at home), Aves (0:3), Moreirense (0:2), Shaves (0:2), etc.

As far as the visiting S.C. Braga are concerned, unlike other Portuguese clubs, they didn’t progress to the European Cups in this campaign, which enabled them to concentrate solely on the national competition. Ahead of the coming clash, the guests take the 2nd line in the standings, only 3 points away from the top, which should highly motivate them to win on Thursday.
On their turf, Portimonense have made a few sensations recently indeed, winning over the capital heavyweights Sporting Lisbon and Benfica there; this should prevent the guests from ‘easy win’ expectations. As a result, Braga will play their best and come closer to the long-awaited championship title.
Prediction for the match: S.C. Braga to win away.
