Farense vs Braga build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Just before the international break, Farense recorded a much-needed league victory when they ran out 0-1 winners at Boavista. But Jorge Costa’s men still remain a point above the relegation zone. That’s because, prior to leaving Estádio do Bessa with all three points, they had endured a five-game winless streak which included back-to-back losses. If they are to stave off demotion from Portugal’s top division this season, Farense will need to improve their recent home form. The Lions of Faro are currently on a five-game winless run at Estádio de São Lúis, accumulating two points from that period, subsequently registering two goals while conceding five times.
Things could not be any different regarding Braga, who are pushing for a place in next season’s Champions League though Carlos Carvalhal’s men head into this latest round of fixtures on a two-game winless run after stringing together four consecutive wins. Despite this recent loss of form, they are still a point behind third place Benfica and have enjoyed recent successes on the road. Across their previous four league matches away from home, Braga have picked up 10 points from 12 available. This current four-match unbeaten run is their longest since putting together five wins in a row between January and March 2020.
- Farense (vs Boavista): Beto; Tavares, Martins, Mancha, Abner; Lucca, Oudrhiri; Aouacheria, Gauld, Licá; Henrique.
- Braga (vs Benfica): Matheus; Borja, Rodrigues, Rodrigues; Esgaio, Al Musrati, Fransérgio*, Galeno; Piazon, Horta; Ruiz.
Madi Queta is the only Farense player set to sit out this match. Fransérgio meanwhile serves a one-match suspension for Braga, who also go into this game missing the injured trio of David Carmo, Francisco Moura and Rui Fonte.
Players to watch: Lucas Piazon (Braga)
Earlier this year, Lucas Piazon ended a near-decade association with Chelsea, where he only made one Premier League appearance. He nevertheless remained busy having been loaned out to seven different clubs before joining Braga permanently. No stranger to Portuguese top division football (after spending last season at Rio Ave), he’s settled well by registering four goals and four assists to date. It is his best return since the 2013/14 season, when he bagged 11 strikes and created a further eight for Eredivisie outfit Vitesse. All of those goal involvements though have come at home, which makes Piazon the most productive Braga player at The Quarry this season. He’ll be desperate to break his duck on the road when facing a struggling Farense side.
