The home team has been a very interesting surprise, with their players presenting, on occasion, some very interesting details, especially in the individual point of view. Costinha, despite his small stature, is the offensive reference of the Setúbal squad: it is important to highlight that the striker has a few flaws in finishing.

      The away team is currently in the 4th position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses.

      Braga enters this match motivated after a home triumph, by 2-1, against Belenenses, for the first round of the group stage of the Portuguese League Cup. The visiting squad has shown some notable skills in quick transitions, mainly due to the ability of their wingers to unbalance the opponents’ defense. It is important to underline that one of the great strengths of this squad is free kicks and corners, due to the stature of their players. Nevertheless, when playing against weaker opponents, the away team manages to control the midfield game, maintaining possession.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be the occurrence of a few goals. Given the history between both clubs and the individual stats of each team, an open match is foreseeable, with good goal opportunities. Both Vitória de Setúbal and Braga are teams that enjoy playing an offensive game, but sometimes slack on the defensive end.
