Football Bet of the Day: It'll be a breeze for Braga

Braga coach Carlos Carvalhal
Carlos Carvalhal overcame Tondela twice with Braga last season

After nailing six winners from seven selections last week, Kevin Hatchard's hanging around for another week, and we're off to Portugal.

"Braga beat Tondela 4-0 and 4-2 last season, and the visitors have lost their last four games in a row."

Back Braga to win and Over 2.5 Goals at 1.9110/11

Archbishops will enjoy themselves

Braga v Tondela
Monday 20 September, 21:15

Erling Haaland continued his stunning start to the season yesterday, and Borussia Dortmund rattled in four goals against Union Berlin in a 4-2 victory. That was one more goal than we needed, as we'd backed the hosts to get at least three.

I'm staying on for another week, and then Tobias will be on duty for a fortnight. That's the admin out of the way, and now we'll head to Portugal to see Braga face rock-bottom Tondela.

It's been a poor start to the season for Tondela, who are coached by former Liverpool coach Pako Ayestaran. They have lost four Primeira Liga games on the spin, and have conceded at least twice in all of those matches.

Braga lost 2-1 at Crvena Zvezda in the Europa League on Thursday, and they have only won two of their five league games so far. However, Carlos Carvalhal's side beat Tondela 4-2 back in February (they won the reverse fixture 4-0), and their only league defeat this season was against the champions Sporting.

All five of Tondela's games have seen an Over 2.5 Goals bet land, and I'll double that up with a Braga win on the Sportsbook at 1.9110/11.
