Chaves vs Braga – Liga NOS :New life in Chaves, with Daniel Ramos’ ideas slowly being absorved
By the new roster of Desportivo de Chaves.
On the first three rounds of the Portuguese league, they have gotten 1 victory and 2 losses, with their most recent one having been pretty tough to swallow.
It happened at the stadium of the former team of their manager, in Madeira, with Marítimo beating Chaves by 2-1, with 2 goals scored in the injury time of the 2nd half, after the visitors had led for more than an hour.
On the previous rounds, Chaves didn’t exist. They were battered by 5-0 in Dragão against FC Porto on their debut and they could have even conceded more,
but they gave a good response in the 2nd round, on the reception to Portimonense, whom they’ve beaten by 2-0, defending very well the 2-goals advantage built in 4 minutes still during the first half.
Sporting Braga started the season with some shakiness, since then marked by their elimination from the Europa League against the Ukrainians of Zorya.
Adding to that was the 3-3 draw in Azores against Santa Clara, especially because it happened after a 3-0 scoreline favourable to the visitors at half-time, which means it seemed like the match was done already.
On the first round, they had beaten the debuting and recently-promoted Nacional, in Braga, by 4-2, showing some defensive fragilities.
On the past Sunday, Abel Ferreira’s team has given out a categorical response, that even started off losing already in the 2nd half against Desportivo das Aves,
but pushed forward by the support of their fans, they rapidly managed to turn things around and they’ve even won by 4-1, wasting other good goal scoring chances to score,
on a match that could have even ended with a more “comfortable” victory for them.
Chaves vs Braga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that Braga’s victory against Aves took some pressure off the shoulders of Braga’s players, not so much due to the 3 points, but due to their performance.
João Palhinha entered to the midfield, offering more defensive consistency to the team, which proved to be essential for them to get the 3 points on the last round.
Chaves plays at home, they won’t play that far back on the pitch, and this Braga plays to win on any stadium and they will be motivated against a team that allowed to slip away not 2 but 3 points in 4 minutes recently in Madeira,
which means they should reinforce their status of contenders on the 4th round.
