Portuguese champions Porto welcome high-flying and still-unbeaten Braga to the Estadio do Dragao on Friday night in a Primeira Liga six-pointer (9.15pm kick-off, UK time).
The reigning title-holders have made an expected if unspectacular start to their campaign, winning most of their contests, but dropping points along the way. Sergio Conceicao’s men are currently third with five wins from seven, but the Portuguese coach will be concerned by their most recent draw to Estoril and that 3-1 defeat to Rio Ave in late August.
Braga, by contrast, have made a sensational start to 2022/23, with Artur Jorge’s Archbishops currently unbeaten, having won six of their opening seven games. Their only blemish on an otherwise perfect starting streak came on matchday one, a 3-3 draw with Sporting CP, which is certainly no disappointment. The question now is: are Braga simply experiencing a flash in the pan? Or is this part of a sustained assault on the Primeira Liga title?

Porto team news
Otavio and Pepe are Conceicao’s only two major concerns heading into club football’s returning weekend. There will be clamour for the likes of Danny Namaso, Gabriel Veron and Toni Martinez to all get more significant minutes here, with the club currently caught in the riptide of a two-game winless run, which consisted of that debilitating 4-0 reversal to Club Brugge in the Champions League.
Braga team news
Vitinha has been in top form this campaign, most recently coming off the bench to score and assist in Braga’s 2-0 win over Vizela just before the international break. The 22-year-old is nursing a slight knock but should be okay to travel on Friday and will be knocking on the first-team door after his super-sub antics a fortnight ago.
