Braga v Benfica preview:
With seven games left to play, Benfica can consider themselves out of the title race, 12 points behind leaders Porto and six behind second-placed Sporting CP. But they are just a few points away from guaranteeing a in the Champions League third qualifying round at the very least.
Nelson Verissimo’s side are currently 12 points clear of fourth-placed Braga and need just 10 points from their final seven matches to wrap up third, but victory in this game would drastically cut that to just four in six. Braga, meanwhile, are 13 points clear of sixth-placed Vitoria and look set for a place in the Europa Conference League qualifying rounds but will try to keep their slim Champions League hopes alive.
