Reason For Sporting Braga vs Gil Vicente Betting Tips

Braga secured all three points away at Vitoria Guimaraes before the international break but could rotate their usual starting line-up due to their upcoming Europa League tie against Wolves next Thursday. Gil Vicente are enjoying life back in the Primeira Liga and would love to go far in the Taca de Portugal so we expect a similar line-up to the one that beat Aves 2-1 in the Primeira Liga last time out.

All of the stats suggest that Braga are best placed to win this cup tie and the likelihood is that the game will produce at least three goals, so we have backed a 2-1 home win this weekend.

Braga are unbeaten in their last five matches against Gil Vicente in all competitions but both teams have scored in three of the pairs last five meetings. The hosts head into the match as the form favourites with four wins from their last six matches, but Gil Vicente have won three of their last six games and have been playing well.

The hosts have won two, drawn two, and lost one of their five home games in the Primeira Liga this season, which isn’t great, but Gil Vicente have lost four and only won one of their five away games which doesn’t bode well heading into a tricky cup tie on the road. Braga average 1.8 goals scored and conceded per home game this season and 80% of those matches have produced over 2.5 goals, while the visitors score an average of 0.60 goals on the road and concede 1.80 and 60% of those games have produced over 2.5 goals.

Gil Vicente are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in the Primeira Liga and Braga have only stopped their guests from scoring in 20% of their home games, another reason to expect both teams to score this Saturday. Three goals have been scored in 60% of Gil Vicente’s away games this season which ties in well with our prediction for a 2-1 Braga win this weekend.

We’re confident that Braga will win and over 2.5 goals will be scored in the process and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. Braga are the favourites and have the home advantage but are yet to really get going this season and both teams have played to a very similar standard so far, which is why we believe Saturday’s cup tie will be very close.
