In the last 15 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Braga continues in a very positive moment of the season and, this time, they recorded nine consecutive matches without tasting the taste of defeat. In this match the coach Paulo Fonseca will operate in the usual 4-4-2 favoring the defensive organization and the counterattacks. It’s important to note that Hassan and Stoijiljkovic have 10 scored goals in their personal account. To this match the visiting coach won’t count on Marcelo Goiano, suspended, and Djavan, Crislan and Ringstad, injured.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be Braga to score at least one goal. Taking into account the offensive quality demonstrated in recent matches by Braga, it’s expectable that they will take advantage of some defensive mistakes of Sion. So, even playing at home, Sion will have to score more than one goal if they aspire to win this match.
