In that contest, Braga had a 63% possession advantage and eight of their 18 shots on goal were successful. Abel Ruiz (59′) and Iuri Medeiros (16′) both scored goals for Braga.
Chaves had eight of their 14 attempts on goal at the other end of the field. Chaves’ goal came from Juninho (42′). Artur Jorge’s Braga have scored 11 goals in total over their previous six games, which works out to 1.83 goals per game on average.
According to the stats before the game, Braga has won their last eight league games without losing to Estoril. Quite a stretch, in fact. In their prior six home league games, they are unbeaten.
Estoril will enter the contest fresh off a 1-0 Primeira Liga victory in which Gil Vicente was defeated. Estoril had 37% of the possession in that encounter and made 7 attempts on goal, scoring on two of them.
Alejandro Marqués was the lone scorer for Estoril (1′). Gil Vicente had 14 attempts on goal at the other end, and 4 of them were successful.
Taking a look at their recent results, Estoril has allowed goals in 5 of their last 6 games, totaling 13 goals from the opposition. Estoril can undoubtedly play much superior defense.
Of course, there is no guarantee that this tendency will continue. Estoril had lost their last eight league games on the road coming into this match. Definitely very bad.
