Reason For Braga vs FC Porto Predictions

Both teams have scored in 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two clubs.

Both teams have scored in each of Braga’s last 6 matches.

Both teams have scored in each of Porto’s last 6 matches.

Both sides have won 5 and lost 1 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.

Braga have already beaten Porto in January

Braga beat Sporting 2-1 in Tuesday’s Taca da Liga Semi-Final while Porto played a day later in the other Semi-Final against Vitoria Guimaraes and produced the exact same result. The pair are both in great form heading into Saturday’s final, picking up five wins and suffering just one defeat in their last six matches in league and cup.

Braga average 1.75 points per home game this season and have drawn a quarter of their home matches in the Primeira Liga while Porto average 2.22 points per away game, drawing 22% of those matches, so you can see why we have backed Saturday’s final to end all square after ninety minutes.

The hosts average 1.63 goals per home game and concede an average of 1.38 goals while Porto score an average of 1.78 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.00 goals, and we have backed the final scoreline to end 1-1 this weekend. Both teams have scored in 50% of Braga’s home games as well as in 67% of Porto’s away games, and with both teams scoring and conceding goals on a regular basis of late you can see why we have backed both teams to score.

Both clubs’ last six matches in all competitions have seen both teams score

Braga have only managed to keep clean sheets in 25% of their home games this season but have found the back of the net in 75% of their home matches, while Porto haven’t failed to score on the road in the league so far. Exactly 2-goals have been scored in 33% of the visitors’ away games so far and the same can be said about 25% of Braga’s home games, suggest that there is a decent chance we will see Saturday’s final end in a 1-1 draw.

Porto have only lost once away from home in the Primeira Liga this season, drawing twice, and are more accustomed to cup finals than their guests, so should prove a tough nut to crack this weekend. Braga have only suffered two losses at home so far and beat Porto 2-1 when the pair locked horns last week, so the hosts will be confident they can claim their second Taca da Liga trophy on Saturday.

We’re confident that both teams will score on Saturday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1 between the two clubs. With this being a final we are expecting a tight and tense ninety minutes but the form and performances of both clubs heading into Saturday’s clash suggest that there are goals in this game for both teams.
