My Monday pick – second Braga to beat rock-bottom Belenenses on 08.02

Belenenses – Braga

Belenensesvs Braga

Monday 8th February 2010 20.15 GMT


  • Belenenses are rock bottom of the table with just one win from the beginning of the season.;
  • It will be surprise if they do something more except strong resistance and defensive tactics until the first conceded goal;
  • Their inefficiency to score is a great problem with 8 goals scored in 17 rounds;
  • At home they are defeated 5 times, the last time was 1:3 against the main opponent in the relegation battle Leixoes ;
  • In the past few years, Braga have dominated against Belenenses with 5 victories in 6 games;
  • Belenenses can’t count with suspended Gómez and injured Nélson, Rodrigo Arroz, Beto and Azeez.


  • Braga currently sits on second place in the table with the perfect chance to close the gap on leaders Benfica to just one point;
  • Last weekend they beat Sporting 1-0 and rule the Lisbon team out of the title race this season;
  • Braga have only conceded six goals all season in 17 league matches;
  • They failed to win their game in the Portugal cup against Rio Ave through penalty shootout at home ground, so they’ll focus on the championship;
  • Vandinho, Mossoro and Ney are punished from the Disciplinary Committee for incidents during the halftime in the match between Braga and Benfica ;
  • The coach coach Domingos Paciência should deal without injured Andrew Leone, Peterson, Andres Madrid, Bruno Tiago and Cesar;
