Braga vs Guimaraes Free Betting Tips

Who is getting into Dérbi do Minho again?

Sporting Braga and Vitória Guimarães have now played three games in the Primeira Liga since resuming play. Neither the Arcebispos nor the Conquistadores have won yet. Accordingly, both seven game days before the end of the season got a bit off track. The home side slipped to fourth place. The guests are only seventh.

It remains to be seen whether a derby atmosphere can even arise without fans and in front of a ghost backdrop. It is clear, however, that in Braga against Guimaraes the prediction will depend heavily on Braga, who have mostly prevailed recently. Only two of the last twelve derbies went to Vitória. In addition, Guimaraes scored seven points less in the current league than the neighbor.

Braga – Statistics & current form

The Sporting Clube de Braga has never been able to break the national dominance of the two capital city clubs from Lisbon and FC Porto and is still waiting for the very first championship. Nevertheless, the Arcebispos are among the flagships of the country of the reigning European champion and Nations League winner.

Overall, there are two cup wins in the Taca de Portugal and as many successes in the Taca da Liga, which could also be won in the current year. In addition, the Braguistas were in the final of the 2011 Europa League. Sporting initially advanced to the team of the hour in 2020 and could dream of further successes.

Before the restart, the most successful Portuguese team in 2020

After Sá Pinto had to pack his suitcases after a mixed first half of the season, Rúben Amorim took over the coaching position on December 27, 2019 and led the Red and Whites far ahead in the Primeira Liga table with one bang after the next. Braga’s yield under him: Eight wins from nine league games and the cup Taca da Liga won.

But then Sporting Lisbon lured the successful coach to the capital in early March and iced him out of his contract. It was taken over by Custódio in the Minhotos, which have been unrecognizable since then.
In the three games since the restart, there was only one out of nine possible points. Braga finally said goodbye to Porto and Benfica and was also overtaken by Sporting.

Except for Wallace, all regular players are ready for action

It is all the more important that the Dérbi do Minho does not add the fourth winless game in a row, but finds Sporting back on the road to success. At least at Braga against Guimaraes the odds of the bookmakers definitely speak for a good result, because basically nothing has changed in the squad.

With the exception of Wallace, all regular players are also ready for action, which is why it could potentially be a matter of head that other strong results did not come last in a highly successful calendar year 2020 so far.

In terms of points won, the Arsenalistas are still the second most successful team in the Primeira Liga in the 2020 annual table. With this broad chest it is now important to start the important game against archrival Guimaraes.

Probable lineup of Braga:
Magalhase – Sequeira – Viana – Carmo – Esgaio – A. Horta – R. Horta – Fransergio – Trincao – Galeno – Paulinho

Last games from Braga:

06/19 2020 Famalicao 0 – 0 Braga

Guimaraes – Statistics & current form

So far, the 2019/20 season has not been overly successful for Vitória Guimarães. If the soccer players from the north of Portugal landed on a solid fifth place last season under Luís Castro and thus moved into the Europa League, there have been no further successes under his successor Ivo Vieira.

In the second most important European competition for club teams, the Vimaranenses failed as group bottom in the preliminary round with Eintracht Frankfurt among others. And in the Primeira Liga, the current seventh place in the table would not be enough to take part in a UEFA competition again.

Three games and three draws since the restart

All the more, the conquistadores had set themselves for the league re-start, after which however sobering returned. After a promising 2-2 draw against Sporting Lisbon at the start, in which two defeats were draw and 15 minutes outnumbered, two further draws followed against Belenenses and Moreiense. Teams that you have to beat without a doubt if you want to go to the Europa League.

Against this background, it is not surprising that in the eyes of the bookmakers at Braga against Guimaraes, a tip on the Vimaranenses’ away win does not appear to be overly promising.

Only four wins from the 13 away games in the Primeira Liga

After all, the away balance of the white and black reads anything but scary. Vitória has played 13 away games in the Primeira Liga. Just four games ended victoriously.

In addition, there are far greater personnel worries. Coach Ivo Vieira is currently without the injured Aziz, Matheus Mascarenhas, Alhassan Wakaso and captain Pedro Henrique. Florent Hanin also saw the traffic light card in added time in the recent 1-1 draw against Moreiense and is therefore also not available in the Dérbi do Minho.

Thus, four cornerstones of the team are missing on the defensive alone. After five winless derbies against arch-rival Braga, it is not exactly more likely to finally win.

Probable lineups of Guimaraes:
Jesus – Sacko – Bondarenko – Venâncio – Garcia – Pepe – Amoah – Teixeira – Davidson – Edwards – Duarte

Last games from Guimaraes:
