Where to watch Benfica vs Sporting Braga live on December 23, 2018

December 21, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
The Primeira Liga table could be turned upside down depending on the results of Benfica vs. Sporting Braga. GOLTV will be showing Benfica vs Sporting Braga in the USA at 12:30 EST. Read on for other global broadcast listings, match facts, and more.

Current form: Benfica vs Sporting Braga

Benfica earned a 1-0 result midweek against Montalegre in the Taca de Portugal, and it was a satisfying result considering that Rui Vitoria opted to heavily rotate his squad for that fixture. Although his team failed to qualify for the round of 16 in the Champions League, they still ended their group stage on a decent note by beating bottom-ranked AEK Athens and thus will be participating in the Europa League next term.

Meanwhile, Braga comes into this game after also securing a hard-fought 1-0 win over Vitoria Setubal in the Taca de Portugal. The visitors are on a five game winning streak across all competitions, with their last loss being a 1-0 reversal against Porto on November 10th. However, Braga really had to work hard for their recent win against Vitoria Setubal in a game that went to extra time, and fatigue could play a negative role for the visitors given that they opted to field a strong starting XI.

Both teams will also have an eye on the top two sides, as a win for either Benfica or Sporting Braga could lift them into second place ahead of Sporting CP, while league leaders Porto would also be within touching distance as the league prepares to go on hiatus for the Christmas break.

Current position: Benfica vs Sporting Braga

Benfica sit in fourth spot, while Braga find themselves in third ahead of Saturday's contest. Interestingly, the top two sides in the table - Porto and Sporting CP - are not too far ahead, meaning that this game could really shake things up in the league standings.

Here's how the top four compare ahead of the match:
