Belenenses vs Braga PredictionBelenenses vs Braga Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Portugal Primeira Liga fixture. Braga have been enduring one of their worst Primeira Liga campaigns this season, having struggled to grind out favorable results in most of their fixtures. Sitting eighth on the standings, much closer to the relegation places than to the top of the table, the pressure is mounting on Ruben Amorim at the club.
Match status: 2019-20 Primeira Liga - Matchweek 15
Kick-off:
Venue: Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon - Oeiras)

Many have called for the sack of the manager as he has failed to steady the tide at the club, even with half of the season’s fixtures already played. However, Amorim has been given a vote of confidence by the club’s board of directors.

It is now left for the Portuguese manager to repay the faith that the board have shown in him by getting his faltering Braga side right back on track.

With a trip to lowly Belenenses on the horizon, the Archbishops will be determined to secure maximum points as they look to climb up the standings before the end of the season.

Belenenses vs Braga Team News

Belenenses were condemned to defeat on the last match-day against Maritimo despite being in the driving seat for large parts of the game. For their dominance, they went ahead very early in the game and looked set for a routine win.

However, a lapse in concentration as the clock wound down saw the Bethlehem surrender their one-goal lead to lose 2-1 away at Maritimo. The travelling supporters were left disappointed as they headed out the stadium, with a defeat in the bag.

Braga, on the other hand, suffered the same fate last time out against relegation-threatened Ferreira right in front of the home support. The relegation candidates did well to clinch an impressive 2-1 victory over Ruben Amorim’s side.

A game the home side were expected to win very comfortably, Brage fell short and were left empty-handed as the referee brought the game to a close. Some of the club supporters were even seen in tears as they witnessed their side go down against one of the league’s minnows.

For this fixture, Braga will be considered very slight favorites for the win, if any team manages to nick the victory. The experience factor is likely to come into play when these two sides lock horns at the Estadio Nacional do Jamor.

Though they have been disappointing this season, the visitors have always been serial contenders for European qualification and this season has been no different.

Braga are currently placed just three spots below the European qualification places. The hosts, in sharp contrast, are just two positions above the relegation places.

Belenenses are winless in four of their last five games across all competitions and were so in twelve of their previous sixteen appearances at home. Also, they had admitted defeat in six of their preceding ten games on home turf.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Belenenses: Eduardo Kau, André Sousa.

Braga: Wenderson Galeno.
