Braga and Estoril enter the field this Monday, at 21:00, at the AXA Stadium, for the 20th round of the NOS League. The Warriors of Minho have just lost the League Cup final to Moreirense 1-0, and this Thursday they were again defeated, in the schedule set for the championship, by Rio Ave, also 1-0. In this return home, the Arsenal players will have to win, because in a club like Braga the three points are required in almost every match. At the moment, the commanders of Jorge Simão are in the fourth position, with 36 points, only two of Sporting, who is third, and in case of victory may overtake the lions, who this weekend move to the Dragon. The men of Estoril are in crisis. Since the entry of his new coach, the Spaniard Pedro Goméz Carmona, only achieved a victory. Triumph that for the Portuguese Cup, against Académica, by 2-1. With regard to the championship accounts, there have been six disappointments followed by the Spanish coach, which caused the Canarians to fall to 16th place, with 15 points, just two of the relegation places. The men of the Line need urgently to score points and have taken advantage of the winter market to strengthen the team with some players that can bring more quality and experience to the squad, as are the cases of Licá and Gonçalo Brandão. In a game where the Bracarans will come under some pressure to win, after the poor performance in the League Cup final and the defeat in Vila do Conde, but where they will find Estoril looking to score points, we believe that everything will be decided in detail , With the balance being dominant.
Braga are the third best defender of the Liga NOS with only 15 goals conceded.
In four of Estoril’s last five away games there were less than 2.5 goals.
Estoril is the worst attack of the Liga NOS, with only 13 goals scored.
In three of the last five clashes between both clubs there were less than 2.5 goals.
Since the arrival of Jorge Simão to the technical command that has not yet seen a dominant Braga and want to win the games. Estoril still do not know what it is to win for the championship under the command of Pedro Carmona and will want to at least add a point. We believe in a game with less than 2.5 goals.
