Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

In a rerun of the Supertaca final in July, Braga and Sporting Lisbon Go head to toe at the Estadio Municipal de Braga on Saturday.

Braga will take revenge on the guests who emerged victorious from this encounter and won their ninth Supercup title.


Prediction for this match

Braga was quick to say goodbye to their Supercup heartbreak when they clinched a 2-0 win against Maritimo last time to get their Primeira Liga season off to a flying start.

In an action-packed match at the Estadio dos Barreiros, goals in the second half of Raul Silva and Ricardo Horta were enough to sentence the hosts to a second consecutive home defeat.

Braga, who will not yet have league successes, will be looking to gain a decent title boost this season and be a step better than their 2010 run in which they finished second behind Benfica.

After the end of the two-decade trophy drought in the Primeira Liga last season, defending their title will be the goal of Sporting Lisbon this year.

After solid preparation for the season in which they recorded three wins and one draw from four games, Sporting Lisbon won their first silver disc with a 2-1 win over the hosts on Saturday in the Supertaca final on July 31.

This achievement has been underpinned by another show in the class since Ruben Amorims team took a comfortable 3-0 win against newly promoted Vizela last time.

Portuguese midfielder Pedro Goncalves picked up where he left off last season and scored twice to put Leoes in the driver’s seat earlier Paulinho settled things in the 74th minute.

With 30 wins and five draws from the last 52 games against the hosts, Sporting Lisbon is confident about Saturday’s encounter.
