Draw

Reason for tip

Both of these teams have enough strong form behind them to make this a difficult game to call. Benfica are just a point ahead of Braga and they may not be separated on this occasion, so back a draw on Sunday.

Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

Benfica have scored at least twice in eight of their last ten league away games, so they could head away from their championship rivals having claimed a 2-2 draw.

Braga vs Benfica Predictions

  • Braga have dropped just two points in their last eight league matches.
  • Benfica are unbeaten in their last 12 Primeira Liga outings
  • Braga have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine league games on their own patch

Tight encounter looks likely

It is developing into a tight race for the Portuguese title with four clubs separated by just two points and Braga and Benfica could prove difficult to separate when they clash on Sunday night.

The pair have ground to make up on Sporting Lisbon and Porto, but after both teams secured Europa League football for after Christmas, there will be little quarter given in this one.

Braga are up to fourth after taking 22 points from their last 24 but there have to be concerns about a defence who have conceded 20 goals in their 13 matches yet find themselves in a lofty position.

So Benfica could take something from the game and having drawn their last two against Moreirense and Farense, they may have to settle for a point again.

Benfica should be positive

While the teams are difficult to separate, it should be a goal-filled event as Braga have conceded in eight of their last nine at home even though they have won 14 of their last 17 on their own patch.

Benfica, meanwhile have scored at least two goals in eight of their last ten league away games, so correct-score punters may be pointed towards a 2-2 final scoreline.
