Braga vs Moreirense prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score

  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings between these two clubs.
  • Four of Braga's last six outings have ended with both teams scoring.

Another reason that we have backed BTTS as our main prediction for this game is that Moreirense have only failed to score in two of their last six league games.

Braga vs Moreirense team news

Braga

Braga went in at the break level with Chaves on Wednesday night. The home side did break the deadlock early in the second forty-five through Rodrigo Zalazar but couldn't hold on to their advantage, conceding an equaliser in the sixty-fourth minute as the game ended all square.

Sikou Niakaté and Simon Banza are both away on international duty and won't feature for the hosts this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Matheus (GK), Oliveira, Borja, Saatçı, Mendes, Pizzi, Al Musrati, Zalazar, Horta, Ruiz & Djaló

Moreirense

Moreirense were made to work hard for their three points at home to Famalicao last time out. This game looked like it was going to end goalless as both teams cancelled one another out but with eight minutes of the ninety remaining, Maracas fired home to claim all three points for the home side.

Sunday's guests head to Braga with a clean bill of health and no suspended players, so there is every chance that Moreirense will give their hosts a tough game this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Kewin (GK), Marcelo, Maracás, Frimpong, Pinto, Ofori, Alan, Franco, Camacho, Aiás & Kodisang

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Alan

Alan has been a key player for Moreirense this season chipping in with goals and assists on a regular basis in his second season with the club.

The 23-year-old midfielder made the move to Moreirense from Sport Recife in 2022 scoring six times in his first campaign with the Portuguese side. This time around, Alan has scored three times and provided four assists with half a season still to play.

Braga are the favourite to win on Sunday but Moreiense have picked up some decent results of late and while they have been inconsistent during that period, the likes of Alan could help the underdogs pick up a decent result away at Braga this weekend.
