Theoretically the most unbalanced game of the round number 30 in Portugal Primeira Liga will be held tonight at 21:00 on Estadio Municipal de Braga, where the local team will host last ranked.
Braga returns to the championship after losing the second leg and Shakhtar Donetsk double with the Champions League. After that failure the team has reached four successive matches without victory in all competitions. Note that on Thursday will play Benfica for a place in the League Cup final and with such a busy schedule would not be surprising if today will enter the field more new names to the team who played Thursday in Ukraine. In the championship she can secure fourth place if successful tonight. It has five points ahead of the next two teams and that would lead to eight points with four rounds remaining in the season I think it will be safe presence in the next edition of the Europa League. Above can not reach, the distance from the podium 13 points. In the previous six stages Braga never recorded two consecutive similar results. In the previous round could not go home Moreirense (1: 1) result came after the failure of 1: 5 on da Luz. The home has eight successive matches without defeat in the league, during which time he checked five wins and scored 20 goals. Guimaraes and Benfica are the only teams that have marked his land Sporting Braga more than one goal in the current championship.
Alan (to 23/3), Rui Fonte (to 15/4), Baiano (f 25/0) and Pedro Santos (to 22/7) are all injured and will miss this game.
Mathematically we have not yet secured fourth place, but we are close to achieving the objective. There are fewer steps and we have a significant difference considering that it is difficult to be recovered from other teams.

More important seems game for Tondela, band that is in last place with 20 points. The difference with the 16th ranked of six points and will recover at least three points in the next four games to Madeira to play a real final battle to avoid relegation in the last round of Madeira. Tondela great form, the team which won seven points in the last 30 days. Home draw with Belenenses and Tondela to, but the most notable result was the buzz from the Estadio do Dragao success earlier this month. Interestingly Petit started on the bench even in the game’s Tondela Braga tour.
We are much better prepared than when I arrived in the team and we played tour Braga. I expect a strong opponent, but we want to get all three points. Mathematically we can save, but we have a tough schedule and we must take each game step by step.
