At the opening of the seventeenth round of the League We will have in Portimão the clash between the teams of Portimonense and Sporting Braga
The Algarve’s formation after a bad start is going through a more positive phase that has led this team to places less afflicted in the league table.
On the other side of the field will be the formation of Sporting Braga one of the teams that is at the top of the table and already almost at the end of the first lap the minhotos are in second place in the Portuguese league.
The formation of Portimonense comes to this day in the eighth position of the league table with 23 points conquered fruit of seven victories, two draws and seven defeats with a balance of 23 goals scored and 27 goals conceded.

The formation of the Portimonense comes from a defeat away from home against the Marítimo by two balls to one but before that they came from a very good sequence of three consecutive victories beating even Benfica.
Nakajima is low for this game, the Japanese midfielder would always be absent for this game even if he had not injured as he injured himself against the Japan national team for the Asian Cup.

The Bracarans are on the way with a record of eleven wins, three draws and two defeats with a score of 31 goals scored and 16 goals conceded.
Sporting Braga away from home have three wins, two draws and two losses with a balance of 11 goals scored and 11 goals conceded.
Sporting Braga come from a home win against Boavista in a game where Braga has not even been well. For this game Ferrugem, Ricardo Esgaio, Ricardo Ferreira, Matheus and Xadas are in doubt for this meeting.

The Portimonense at home is a difficult team and this year they have already proved it against Sporting and Benfica. However without Nakajima the football of the Algarve becomes less brilliant and this was visible in the trip to Funchal to face the Marítimo.
Braga want to continue to dream and possibly benefit from the result of the classic has to win this game so I believe in an applied game and fruit for the team of Abel Ferreira.
