Braga v Belenenses Match preview
Os Arcebispos fell to a humiliating defeat at the hands of Boavista in the Taca da Liga. They will now turn their attention to the league where they succumbed to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Porto. Carlos Carvalhal’s men have lost four times in the last eight outings and defensive issues have played a big role in that. They have already let in 17 goals in the last eight games and managed just 12.
However, they are in fourth place in the league standings and lead fifth placed Estoril Praia by only a point.
Belenenses are still stuck in the relegation zone and O Belem have won just once in the last 14 games. They’re currently rock bottom in the league and no one can argue why. This is a team that is destined for life in second tier Portuguese football.
