Braga vs Porto build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Braga finished third in the Primeira Liga last season, piping Sporting CP on head-to-head away goals, but this year they have their eye on one place higher with a more comfortable finish and bigger prize. Although third place this season would be good enough for a Champions League qualifying spot (unlike in 2019/20) Braga are just three points behind second, which would secure a group stage place.
The team ahead of them, as mentioned, are Porto whose focus may now be on securing Champions League football with Sporting CP so far ahead of them in their quest to retain the title. The difference between Porto and Sporting so far have been two defeats, against Maritimo and Pacos Ferreira, which the Dragons will still look back on with pain.
Sunday’s game is the first of a double-header between Braga and Porto, with the pair also facing off in the Portuguese Cup semi-final on Wednesday.
- Braga (vs Portimonense): Matheus; Esgaio, Rolando, Carmo, Borja; Al Musrati, Castro; Piazon, Horta, Galeno; Sporar.
- Porto (vs Belenenses): Marchesin; Nanu*, Mbemba, Pepe, Manafa; Felipe Anderson, Uribe, Oliveira, Fabio Vieira; Evanilson, Taremi.
Braga remain without Rui Fonte, Francisco Moura and Iuri Medeiros, while Nuno Sequeira is a doubt. Nanu suffered a spinal cord injury in Porto’s game against Belenenses in midweek and will unfortunately be out for some time. Otavio and Ivan Marcano are also out with Joao Mario doubtful.
Player to watch: Mehdi Taremi (Porto)
Over the years Porto have been known for having excellent strikers. Just look at the likes of Radamel Falcao, Jackson Martinez and Benni McCarthy. The latest forward to be thriving in their attacking line is Iranian Mehdi Taremi, who joined from fellow Portuguese side Rio Ave last summer.
Taremi spent just one season at Rio Ave but his excellent goal return of 21 in 37 games, including 18 in the Primeira Liga, was enough to catch Porto’s eye. The 28-year-old hasn’t had it all his way this season and was made to work for his spot in the team, with his first seven appearances all coming from the bench. But, thanks to a goal in that final substitute appearance, Taremi hasn’t looked bad, now on seven for the season – Porto’s joint-top scorer in the league alongside Sergio Oliveira.
