Sporting CP will once again be looking to put pressure on at the top of the Primeira Liga table when they host Braga on Saturday at 8:30pm (UK time).

The defending champions are once again playing before their title rivals Porto in the league as they look to close the three-point gap at the top of the table. It was a gap created by Sporting’s shock defeat to Santa Clara at the start of January, from which they bounced back by beating Vizela last weekend. Braga, meanwhile, have lost both of their games this year to fall nine points behind third-placed Benfica in their race for Europa League football.

Sporting CP team news

Sporting are expected to remain without Pedro Porro and Jovane Cabral but have an otherwise fully fit squad from which to choose. Ruben Vinagre is slowly being bedded back in after injury and although he started in a recent cup win, he may have to settle for the bench once again.

Sporting CP predicted XI: Adan; Reis, Coates, Inacio; Esgaio, Braganca, Palhinha, Santos; Goncalves, Paulinho, Sarabia.

Braga team news

Braga will welcome Al Musrati and Bruno Rodrigues back from suspension and both are likely to go straight back into the start XI. The visitors are still without the likes of Nuno Sequiera, Galeno, David Carmo and Castro, while Paulo Oliveira is now suspended for yellow card accumulation.

Braga predicted XI: Matheus; Tormena, Leite, Rodrigues; Couto, Mineiro, Al Musrati, Moura; Medeiros, Horta; Fale.
