Porto -150 Favourite To Win on Sunday

Published on May 21st, 2016 8:45 pm EST
One of the final pieces of business for this current football season is a Portuguese Cup clash between Porto and Braga.

With league play now having been completed, cup play will take place before all of the attention turns to the Euros, which get underway in just a few weeks.

One of those cup clashes will see Porto and Braga square off for the Portuguese Cup.

Here are the current odds for Sunday's match:

Porto, 1.67
Draw, 3.50
Braga, 5.50

These two teams finished #3 and #4 respectively in Primeira Liga action this season, though Porto finished 15 points ahead of Braga. There was a great disparity between the top three teams (Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, Porto) and the rest of the league this season, with Braga leading the pack of the "second tier" teams.


Braga made the finals last season of the Portuguese Cup before losing a heartbreaking contest to Sporting CP in penalty kicks.

Porto, which has won the cup 16 times and finished in second place twelve times, will be making their first appearance in the Portuguese Cup since winning three consecutive times in 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Braga, on the other hand, has won the Portuguese Cup once (1966) and has finished runner-up a total of four times (1977, 1982, 1998, 2015).


Will Porto be able to close out a successful season, or will Braga surprise most and win the second Portuguese Cup of their existence?
