SC Braga – Benfica – On Saturday night we are expecting a very interesting match in the 18th round of the strongest Portuguese league, because we meet fourth Braga and third Benfica, who currently has three points too. Otherwise, both teams are in very good shape and are still competing for the first two places in the Champions League, while adding that they have already met the strengths of Lisbon this season, with Benfica winning the season 3: 1, and in the Liga Cup it was a draw.
However, that roar for Brag also meant a break from a series of eight consecutive defeats in Benfica’s duel, though in the end both teams remained unbeaten in the semi-finals of the League Cup. However, many believe that Braga has deliberately avoided further appearances in the competition, as they are expecting two very important matches against the sixteenth of the European Cup final with French Marseille, while certainly not giving up on the first two places in the championship.
At the moment Braga has only six points less than the other Sporting and eight in relation to the leading Porto, but they are also in a series of three consecutive victories, so they are now in a great mood in the current Portuguese championship. However, they are aware that they have to play a fantastic match on Saturday if they want to stay undefeated, while still needing to add that they are currently injured by Marafon goalkeeper, Ferreira stunt, and the midfielders Mauro and Fransergio.
As for the current Portuguese champions, we have already stated in the introduction that they are currently only in the third place of the Portuguese league, so they will certainly do their utmost to make up for these five points behind Porto and three against the city rivals, Sporting. More because they have already risen from the Champions League and both Portuguese Cups so that they can fully devote themselves to the championship, where they are usually in a series of seven defeats and only two draws.
However, it is interesting to note that these two rhymes have been recorded in the duels with Port and Sporting, so it will be very interesting to see how they are going against the extremely unpleasant Brage, which is only three points behind them. When it comes to the Benfica team for this match, we believe that Coach Rui Vitoria will send the same team to the field as in the previous few laps, especially because only the stunt Luisao and midfielder Samaris are injured.
