Setubal vs Braga Prediction 25 January 2017

Tournament: Taça da Liga
Location: Algarve Stadium
Match date: 25.01.2017 at 19:45

On January 25 2017 at 19L45 in the semifinal game of the Portuguese League Cup at the Algarve Stadium Vitoria de Setubal play against Braga.

Setubal hardly managed to stay in the elite division at the end of the previous season as they only finished it one point above the relegation zone. In the current season they show the noticeable progress and are now in the middle of the standings. They are now in pretty good conditions as they won two latest games. In those matches Setubal outplayed Nacional 1:0 and Belenenses 1:2. We must also admit that Setubal succeeded at the group stage of the Portuguese League Cup and made it to the play-offs.

Even though Braga lost to Guimaraes 1:2 in the previous game, they are still on the third position in the standings of the national elite division and are now 5 points above Porto and 9 points above Benfica. That loss in the previous match was the first one in the six latest games of the championship. In the League Cup Braga had a comparatively bad start as they lost to Rio Ave 1:2 but after that they managed to improve the situation. Braga won against Covilha 4:0 and Maritimo 0:1 which let them gain 6 points and take the first position in the table of the group to make it to the play-offs of the competition.

Braga won most of the latest games played between the teams. We must also admit that last time Setubal outplayed the Gunners was in 2008. In the first round game of the current season Braga won 2:1. Even though Braga have made a few mistakes in the away matches of the current championship, they are still more experienced and more skilled. That is why they are to win in that upcoming game and make it to the final of the Portuguese League Cup.
