Sporting Braga has been struggling with form lately. They were defeated 1-0 by the league leaders Porto in their last match. Although they created a few clear chances, the home side failed to impress against Porto last weekend.
Sporting Braga is 4th on the rankings with 25 points after 14 matches. They will now look to get back on the winning track when they play on Sunday.
Belenenses is also struggling at the moment. They were defeated by Estoril Praia with a score of 1-0 and fortunately did not lose by a larger margin. They failed to get a shot on target for the whole game and failed to score in the last three matches.
Belenenses is at the bottom of the table with only 8 points. A win on Sunday will get them out of the relegation zone with a game in hand.
