TONDELA: Ramos, Bruno, Fernandes, Ícaro, Joãozinho, Tavares, Gonçalves, Boyd, Nuno, Delgado and Tomaré.

We will have a confrontation that tends to be unbalanced here, the Braga despite coming from elimination in the Europa League, did against the strong team of Marseille.
In addition to being a tough opponent to beat, he has a great moment in the championship, already practically guaranteed again in the Europa League, considering that he is 13 points ahead of 5th place, and looks for bigger ambitions, like fighting for a spot in the Champions League and knows that he has to keep up the good work before the fans.
For that has an offensive sector that has an average of more than 2 goals per game, that average still increases in the games like client for almost 2.5 goals.
Highlight for Paulinho with 7 goals and Esgaio with 8 assists. The style of play of the team is to maintain the possession of the ball, with short passes, being a collective team both to attack and defend, besides the offensive power, the team has a great defensive consistency. The team has strengths, the attack by the sides, taking advantage of the good arrival of their sides, besides the speed of their tips.
In addition it uses the kicks of average and long distance, having good use. Especially in home games, the team creates countless chances of a goal.
On the other hand, the team has been vulnerable to being attacked by the sides, much by the constant support of their sides, which ends up leaving the defense exposed and without coverage.
Already the Tondela, already sees the relegation zone approaching, the series of bad results and bad performances already connects the alert in the team, that will have a difficult confrontation ahead and a point here already is seen with good eyes.
For this, the team will seek to exploit the counter attacks in this game, which is a strong point, besides the long balls, uses the crosses a lot, especially on the right side and tries to finish as soon as it gets a space.
Highlight for Murilo with 7 goals, which will be an important embezzlement for this game and for Tomané, with 7 assists.
On the other hand, it shows a lot of difficulty in keeping possession of the ball, in the balls areas, and of much space for kicks from outside the area of the opposing team, besides the deficiency in marking by the sides of the defense.
Prediction Braga vs Tondela
I think the home factor and Braga’s great offensive moment will make a difference in this game.
Braga have won 9 of their last 10 games against the supporters, in addition to the average 2.5 goals in home games, there have been more than 2.5 goals in 8 of the last 9 games. So I think we have a lot of value in the Asian Handicap Braga -1.5.
Prediction of the Day: Braga EH -1
