Santa Clara vs Braga Prediction and Betting Preview 05 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 3-2
Santa Clara vs Braga PredictionNo longer in top-two reckoning, Sporting Braga will be looking to tighten their grip on third-place with the likes of Sporting CP and Rio Ave hot on their tails. Having amassed 46 points from 24 league games, Braga look well on-course for a comfortable league finish come the end of the campaign.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 30
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel (Ponta Delgada)
The Archbishops have been truly exemplary this season with some scintillating piece of football on show and impressive results to go. They have steamrolled their way through almost every opposition they have come up against – title chasing Porto and Benfica, the only sides sporting a better record than Braga.

Sitting third on the standings, they are four points clear of fourth-placed Sporting CP and will be looking to steer further away from the Lisbon-based club when they lock horns with Braga at the Estadio de Sao Miguel on Friday night.

Meanwhile, Santa Clara sit tenth on the standings and are currently within mid-table obscurity. Miles away from the relegation places and with a Europa League place finish out-of-reach, the Azoreans are not really in any desperate need of points.

As Braga make the trip to Santa Clara on Friday, the Archbishops will set their sights on all three points as they look to cement third-spot on the log. Surely, it is bound to be an exciting game in Santa Clara come kickoff.

Santa Clara vs Braga Team News

Santa Clara were handed a tricky game at Gil Vicente on the last match-day and were required to put up a worthwhile performance in unfamiliar territory. The Azoreans duly delivered as they took the game by the scruff of the neck, giving Vicente a run for their money.

Enduring a drab first-half at the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos, the game sprang into life after the restart as both sides went all out for glory. Gil Vicente drew first blood in the 49th minute through a well-taken Kraev goal. 

The home side had looked set for the victory before being pegged back by Santa Clara, Thiago Santana firing home the equalizing goal to secure a point for his side. Ultimately, both sides were made to settle for a draw, the score-board displaying 1-1 at fulltime.

Meanwhile, Braga played host to relegation-threatened Portimonense last time out, Custodio’s charges taking their opposition to the cleaners. They were in red-hot form throughout the game and looked well-deserving of their thumping 3-1 victory.

Francisco Trincao was the cream of the crop for the Archbishops, breaking the deadlock before providing the assist for the final goal of the game. He looked in fine form throughout the game, clinching the maximum points for his side.

Undoubtedly, Braga have been one of the better sides in the Primeira Liga this season, winning their last four games on the bounce. Also, they had secured the win in 12 of their preceding 15 fixtures across all competitions – their only two losses coming in the Europa League. Impressively, they have won six of their last seven away games in the league.

The Azoreans, in sharp contrast, are winless in their last three league games, two of which ended in defeats. They have admitted defeat in six of their preceding eight clashes on home turf, failing to register a single goal in three of their last six on this ground.
