Benfica vs Braga Prediction 9 August 2017

Tournament: Portuguese Primeira Division
Location: Estadio da Luz
Match date: 09.08.2017 at 21:00

On Wednesday, August 9 2017 at 21:00 in the final game of the first matchday of the Portuguese Primeira Division at the Estadio da Luz the local Benfica will play against their guests Braga.

Benfica showed rather good results in the previous season and they are deservedly respected for it. In fact, Benfica took part in three tournaments at the same time and they looked really well in all of them. In the Champions League Benfica made it to the play-offs of the tournament and were outplayed by Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16. As for the national competitions, Benfica won all of them as they became the champions of their country and won in the final of the national cup. Benfica have already started official matches in the current season as they played in the national Super Cup and won.

Braga are traditionally considered to be one of the strongest clubs of their country. They took part in a few tournaments at the same time in the previous season. I the European competition they stopped in the group stage as they took the third place in their group of the Europa League. As for the national cup, they made it to the round of 16 of it and were kicked-off form the competition. They also made it to the final of the league cup and lost to Moreirense 0:1. In the Portuguese championship Braga didn’t manage to keep their race for the fourth place and stayed on the fifth.

Benfica are the absolute favorites of the upcoming game. Moreover, the Eagles won their latest seven matches against Braga. Last time they met was on February 19 this year and Benfica won once against 0:1. We must also admit that Benfica only lost one single home game to Braga since 1998. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are more likely to win in the upcoming match.
