      Analysis: Sporting Braga vs Tondela (18 April 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: April 18 2016, 01:06 »

      Braga and Tondela face at Estádio Municipal de Braga, in a match for the 30ª round of the Primeira Liga. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 13‑12‑2015, Braga got an away win by (0‑1). In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Sporting Braga

      The home team is currently in the 4ª position of the league, with 51 points won, after 14 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Benfica, by (5‑1). In the last match, they tied in a home match against o Moreirense, by (1‑1). 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 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 16 conceded. They come to this match after a away loss against Shakhtar Donetsk by (4‑0). For the league, Braga won 21 points out of 30 possible points, after 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 losses in the last 10 home matches.

      In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 8 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 13 of the last 14 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 29 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1. There are 1 periods that stand out in the last 14 home matches for this competition: they have suffered 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

      Braga is having a rather negative moment, as they have a lost against Shaktar in their previous match, their 4th consecutive match without a win. In this challenge, they should play in a 4-4-2 formation, prioritising attacking plays, aware of their opponents defensive issues. Hassan and Stojilijkovic are the 2 forwards, and both have 9 goals scored. However, it is Rafael Silva the highlight of the team. For this match, coach Paulo Fonseca will be without Alan, Rui Fonte, Baiano and Pedro Santos, who are all injured.

      Analysis of Tondela

      The away team is currently in the 18ª position of the league, with 20 points won, after 5 wins, 5 draws and 19 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against o Porto, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against o União Madeira, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 2 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses at their stadium, with 11 goals scored and 23 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches o Tondela has a record of 3 wins, 1 draws and 6 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 30 possible.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 7 of the last 29 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 3 of those 7 matches and have held on to the lead in 3. In 29 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 22 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

      Tondela is facing their best moment in the Portuguese league, as they have 3 consecutive matches without a loss and in the last match, they had a win against Porto. They usually pay in a 4-2-3-1 formation, prioritising defensive play style and counter attacks, especially through the wings. However, they have issues in their offense to defense transition, crosses and finishing. Forward Nathan Junior is the player with the most goals scored, with 11. Lima should be the only unavailable player for this match.

      Betting suggestion:

      This game will be between two teams with very different positions in the league, so it is probable that Braga will win this match. However, Tondela is having a good recent form and haven't conceded a single goal in the last 2 matches. On the other hand, Braga should dominate this match, so just like their previous match, we should have a match with less than 3 goals on the scoreboard.
