Braga and Sporting face at AXA Stadium, in Braga, in a match for the 8th finals of the Portuguese Cup.
The head to head record in this competition favours Sporting, since they have won the last 2 matches.
These two teams faced in the final of last year’s edition of the competition, in a match won by Sporting in a penalty shootout, after a 2-2 score by the end of extended time.

Analysis Braga

Coach Paulo Fonseca’s team comes to this match after a 1-0 win over Tondela: Stojiljkovic scored the only goal of the team. Braga is currently in the 4th position of the league, with 24 points conquered.
To reach this stage of the competition, Braga eliminated Académico de Viseu, in the 3rd round, and Farense, in the 4th. In the last 10 matches the home team registers averages of 0,8 goals scored and 0,4 conceded per match, so their defensive consistency is evident.
Coach Paulo Fonseca should use the best players available in this match, since in the last match against Tondela he spared some of the usual starting line-up players. But Rodrigo Pinho is recovering from an injury and is unlikely to be available.

Confirmed Lineup: Matheus, André Pinto, Baiano, Marcelo Goiano, Ricardo Ferreira, Luiz Carlos, Nikola Vukčević, Rafa Silva, Alan, Wilson Eduardo, Koka.

Analysis Sporting CP

Coach Jorge Jesus comes to this match motivated the last positive results. In the last match Sporting has beaten Moreirense by 3-1, with goals by Gelson Martins, Aquilani and Slimani. They are currently in the 1st position of the league, with 35 points won and no losses.
To reach the 8th finals of the Portuguese Cup, Sporting eliminated Vilafranquense with a 4-0 win and a 2-1 win after extended time against rivals Benfica. In the last 10 matches they register averages of 1,8 goals scored and 0,8 conceded per match.
In this match coach Jorge Jesus is unlike to spare any important players, as in the last match against Benfica for this competition. With all squad players available, Slimani stands out as the main offensive reference of the team: he is the best scorer of the team, with 11 goals scored this season.

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Ewerton, Jefferson, João Pereira, Paulo Oliveira, Alberto Aquilani, Adrien Silva, João Mário, William Carvalho, Bryan Ruiz, Islam Slimani.
