Manuel Branco Teixeira will play against Chaves in Matchday No. 26. The visitors are having a fantastic season playing in the highest division of Portuguese football.
After 25 rounds of the tournament, they are only two points behind Porto in second place, and Artur Jorge and his team may very well qualify for the Champions League.
Just before the international break, the archbishops demonstrated their resilience once more when they played a competitive encounter against Porto.
It resulted in a scoreless tie, but it’s important to note that Braga restricted teams like Porto to just five total shots over the course of the game’s 90 minutes.
In their last three league games, Braga has now won twice, drawn once, and not given up a goal. They prevailed in 10 of their 13 Primeira Liga away games this season, and we consider them to be the overwhelming favorites when they face Chaves on Sunday. The home team is also having a strong season by their standards; they are presently ranked 11th in the league.
After two consecutive 2-0 victories over teams from the lowest half—Portimonense and Estoril—Vitor Campelos’ team will enter this match with confidence. However, when Chaves play the Champions League contenders, the wins over these teams won’t mean much.
