Kev's chasing a third consecutive winner, and he's hooking up with some old friends in Portugal.
"Braga have won 10 of their last 11 home games in the league, and six of those wins have been by two goals or more."
Braga v Moreirense
Friday 09 March, 20:30
Brilliant Braga to win again
It took a while to catch fire, but eventually Rome burned with the heat of Lazio and Dynamo Kiev's second-half shenanigans. 0-0 at half time, 2-2 at the final whistle, and our BTTS bet landed comfortably.
We're kicking off the weekend in Portugal, because our firm friends Braga are taking on relegation battlers Moreirense.
Braga's ability to win home games comfortably has done us a few good turns in the past, and I suspect they may achieve a similar feat tonight. The Archbishops have won their last four games in all competitions, including a 6-0 demolition of Estoril last time out. They have won 10 of their last 11 home games in the league, and six of those ten wins were by two goals or more. In their last four league games, Abel's side have scored 15 goals.
Moreirense have just picked up a vital win over Pacos de Ferreira, and are just about keeping their heads above water. However, they have lost eight of their last 11 on their travels. They really struggle to score against the big teams: in games against Porto, Benfica, Sporting and Braga, they have scored just once in six outings.
Braga are firing on all cylinders, and I believe they can sweep aside such limited opposition.
