Egypt international Ahmed Hassan Kouka was left out of the squad as Braga beat 1-0 to close the gap on third-placed .

In the first fifteen minutes, Sporting were on top of Kouka’s Braga as they had a clear chance which was missed by Bas Dost. As the game started to progress, Braga grew more into the game and had more control in the match.

In the fourth minute of extra time Braga scored a goal but it was ruled out by VAR.

In the second half, Braga looked like a different team as they were more dominant and had the upper hand in the game. They were constantly threatening Sporting’s goal but couldn’t find the back of the net.

Just seven minutes from time, Sporting’s right back Piccini got sent off after a very harsh tackle on one of Braga’s men. Four minutes later, Raul Silva fired home from a header to kill off the game.

Braga are now the fourth just one point behind Sporting and their next match will be against Feirense away on 7 April.
