Vizela vs. Braga Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Braga aims to extend their unbeaten streak to five matches across all competitions as they visit Vizela in the Primeira Liga on Friday afternoon.

Braga, currently placed fourth in the table, trails the leaders, Sporting Lisbon, by five points. Meanwhile, Vizela has struggled this season, gathering only 10 points and sitting in 17th position.

Match Preview:

Despite finishing in 11th place in the previous Primeira Liga season, Vizela has struggled to replicate their success in the current campaign.

They have managed only 10 points in 12 matches, resulting in two wins, four draws, and six defeats, leaving them in 17th place.

Vizela, however, showed promise with a three-game unbeaten streak before a recent 2-1 loss to Chaves. Their inconsistency has left them just one point above the bottom-placed Arouca but within two points of climbing up to 12th place.

Braga, on the other hand, comes into this fixture following a 3-1 win against Estoril, accumulating 26 points from 12 league games. They stand fourth, trailing third-placed Porto by two points, Benfica by three, and Sporting by five.

Artur Jorge’s Braga side has been prolific in scoring, netting 33 goals but has also conceded 19, the highest among the top eight teams.

They aim to stay in contention for the top spots and have an outside chance of advancing in the Champions League if they secure a win against Napoli by two or more goals.
