Venue: Estádio do Dragão (Porto)

FC Porto, as expected, have been soaring in the Primeira Liga this season, sitting second on the standings, just four points shy of league leaders Benfica.

Harboring hopes of usurping the reigning champions to the summit, a victory against this foe will do their title ambitions a world of good. They have been faultless this season, deserving of every single plaudit they have been receiving.

With Braga heading to the game with the odds highly stacked against them, the Archbishops will be looking to upset the odds by grabbing an unlikely victory over this outstanding Porto side.

FC Porto vs Braga Team News

The Primeira Liga title challenge is a two-horse race at the moment with Benfica and FC Porto setting the pace at the business end of the standings. Only the Dragons have proven worthy challengers of defending champions Benfica this season.

A whopping 11 points separating Porto from third-place Famalicao, it is fair to say that Sergio Conceicao's men are heads and shoulders above every other team below them on the log. In fact, they are yet to taste defeat in all of their home league games this season.

Their last game saw them drag Moreirense to the cleaners, posting a 4-2 scorecard. They were always expected to come out tops and the players duly delivered. They have maintained an unbeaten status in their previous fourteen league fixtures.

Having lost just one game so far in the league, the Dragons are on cloud-9 and will be looking to keep their great run of form going. The title race is far from over and the home side will fancy their chances of leapfrogging Benfica to the summit of the log.

Braga, on the other hand, had also celebrated victory in their last game against Tondela on home turf. It wasn't the most pretty of victories as the Archbishops were made to scrap for a narrow 2-1 win.

The club's supporters were in fine voice throughout the game as they didn't seem bothered by the scrappy manner in which they secured victory over one of the league's minnows. The win saw them move up to fifth on the standings with 24 points from 16 games.

The visitors have admitted defeat in two of their last five away games in the league and have only won three of their eight fixtures away from home.

Given that the Estadio da Dragao has been something of a fortress this season, Braga's chances of salvaging a positive result in this game seem very slim, if not non-existent. They will need a miracle of sorts to be in contention for even a point here. 

Injured or Suspended Players:

FC Porto: Pepe, Shoya Nakajima.
