Under 2.5 Goals
When these two sides locked horns for their reverse league fixture in January, under 2.5 goals were scored as Pacos Ferreira claimed a 2-0 win. Four of Braga's last six matches have produced under 2.5 goals as have five of Pacos Ferreira's last six fixtures, so you can see just why we're expecting another low-scoring 90-minutes between the two clubs.
Braga to Win
Braga not only sit 10pts and one position clear of Pacos Ferreira in the Primeira Liga table but they also have the home advantage on Wednesday and head into the game as the form favourites. The hosts have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six matches, while Pacos Ferreira have lost four of their last six outings.
Braga have only failed to score in two of their last seven games against Pacos Ferreira and we believe that one-goal could be good enough to claim all 3pts on Monday. Pacos Ferreira have failed to score in four of their last six matches in the Primeira Liga, including a 5-0 defeat to Benfica. Braga have only scored more than one goal in two of their last six outings, which is another reason were expecting a low-scoring game.
Braga vs Pacos Ferreira: Key stats and odds
Pacos Ferreira aiming for domestic double over Braga
Braga suffered a surprising defeat away at Maritimo last time out and will be looking to make amends for that loss when they take on Pacos Ferreira. Francisco Moura will miss Wednesday's game due to an ACL injury, but other than that, Braga have a clean bill of health. The hosts have lost their last two matches and will be looking to guarantee a top-four finish with a win against a Pacos Ferreira side that have impressed this season.
Pacos Ferreira claimed a 1-0 win at home to Belenenses at the weekend and look likely to finish in the top six for the first time since the 2006/07 campaign. Having already beaten Braga this season, the visitors are bound to be confident about their chances of escaping on Wednesday night with at least a point, but Braga are the form favourites heading into this game and should prove a much tougher opponent this time around.
