Good pick! The odd has a lot of value! It could be easily around 1.40!

Now Braga will probably become a trust team to bet.

Braga has a new and young coach. Portugueses coachs are known as good and Jorge Simão is one of best at Portugal nowdays. He have done a pretty good job up today in first division with Belenenses, Paços de Ferreira and Chaves (this season). This will give for sure a new positive boost to Braga team! Another positive factor is Moreirense also have a good coah that likes to play attractive football which will expose their net to Braga strickers. Of corse Moreirense doesn't have the same weapons as Braga have, so I am expecting a good game with Braga being the winner!

4 players out due to injuries. How important players they are for Braga?

Five players are out due to injuries for Braga: Rosic, Velázquez, Pedro Santos, Mauro e Stojiljkovic (last three are important players)

For Moreirense is out Diego Galo (Centre back/13 games played) and listed as questionable Alan Schons (defensive midfield/10 games played)

The new coach was just presented on tuesday, so he will probably keep the same line up as gainst Sporting. The difference will be in the message from him giving more attitude to the players.
