Vizela vs Braga team news

Vizela

Vizela slipped to yet another defeat in their last league game away at Chaves. Despite taking the lead in the twelfth minute via Samuel Essende, Vizela went in level at the interval and conceded another goal early in the second forty-five to lose the game 2-1. Bruno Wilson was sent off deep in stoppage time against Chaves and will now miss the game against Braga on Friday.

Predicted Lineup: Buntić (GK), Pereira, Anderson, Escoval, Samu, Moreira, Silva, Ortiz, Nascimento, Essende & Lacava 

Braga

Braga fell behind at home to Estoril last time out but recovered well to win the match 3-1. Ricardo Horta equalised for the hosts just after the hour mark and top goalscorer Samuel Banza made it 2-1 early in the second half before a late own goal from Marcelo Came sealed the points. Friday's guests have no fresh injury concerns or suspended players ahead of the trip to Vizela.

Predicted Lineup: Matheus (GK), Fonte, Borja, Gómez, Saatçı, Moutinho, Pizzi, Carvalho, Horta, Banza & Djaló

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Álvaro Djaló

Álvaro Djaló has played an important role for Braga going forward this season.

The Spanish attacker has scored five times in the P{rimeira Liga as well as chipping in with three assists, making him one of the club's main providers and creators of goals this season.

We're backing Djalo to leave another positive impression on the Braga fans this week by helping to guide the away side to all three points.
