The hosts picked up their first league win since January in their previous outing as they secured a 2-1 win against Estoril Praia last week thanks to Kiko's brace. Braga secured a crucial 3-2 win against Lisbon giants Benfica last time around.
They were in action in the Europa League in midweek and secured a 1-0 win over Rangers at home in the first leg of the quarter-final fixture on Thursday. They travel to Glasgow for the second leg this Thursday and might choose to rest their key players for this routine league outing.

Vizela vs Braga Prediction
Vizela have just two wins at home in the league this season and have failed to score in four of their last five games at Sunday's venue. Braga boast a decent away record this season and are unbeaten in their last three away games.
They are expected to prioritize the game against Rangers on Thursday and might take their foot off the pedal for this game. Though bragging rights are up for grabs in this Braga derby, the game is expected to end in a low-scoring draw.
Prediction: Vizela 1-1 Braga
