      « Reply #1 on: July 14 2016, 16:53 »

      Sporting Braga and Nottingham Forest face at (Desconhecido), in a friendly match. This is the 2nd friendly match of the year for Sporting Braga, after the previous friendly match against Wigan Athletic. As for Nottingham Forest, this is the first friendly match of the year. These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

      Analysis of Braga

      This is the 2nd friendly match of the year for the home team, after the friendly match against Wigan Athletic, which ended with the final score: Sporting Braga (0‑0) Wigan Athletic. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 17 conceded. In the last 10 home matches Sporting Braga has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2.

      They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 27 of the last 31 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals.

      Braga finished 4th in their national league. Their previous match was a friendly against Wigan, which ended in a 0-0 draw. They should use their usual 4-3-3 formation, despite this being a friendly match. Coach Jose Peseiro should use less usual players, trying to give them a chance to show their potential.

      Analysis of Nottm Forest

      The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 7 friendlies last year, with the following final scores in the last 5: Nottingham Forest (3‑3) Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest (1‑1) Swansea City, Doncaster Rovers (1‑1) Nottingham Forest, Stevenage (0‑3) Nottingham Forest and FC Helsingør (2‑1) Nottingham Forest. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 13 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the Championship, they got an away win against Milton Keynes Dons by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Nottingham Forest has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 11 of the last 25 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 19 out of 25 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 20 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 8 of their 18 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

      Nottingham Forest won their previous league match, 2-1 against Milton Keynes Dons. They usually play in a 4-3-3 formation, prioritising counter attacks, but as this is a friendly match, they should try to use different formations. A couple of different players could appear, as this is a match to prepare for next season.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match will be for Braga to win. This is a friendly match, where both teams might not care for the outcome of the match, but Braga is by far the superior team, even using reserves. So we expect for them to win this match.
