Braga vs Sporting CP odds


*Odds correct as of 18:15 on August 30

After three weeks of the 2023/24 Primeira Liga campaign, there are still three teams boasting a perfect record. One of those is Sporting CP. Last season was a disappointing one for Sporting as they finished fourth, missing out on the Champions League, having to settle for the Europa League. However, they have put their woes behind them early on with three wins from three in the league. The campaign started with a 3-2 win over Vizela and has carried through with victories over Casa Pia and Famalicao, though Sporting are third on goal difference.

The team to finish third, above Sporting, last season were Braga and they have made the most of their Champions League qualifying campaign. Braga were drawn against FK TSC in the third qualifying round and beat them home and away, either side of an opening Primeira Liga defeat to Famalicao. However, it’s easy to see that the focus was on the Champions League, and Braga have bounced back to win their next three games including two against Panathinaikos to seal a spot in the group stage. Braga did have the weekend off in the Primeira Liga to prepare for their Champions League play-off second leg, so trail most of their rivals by a match.
