Braga Team News

Abel Ferreira has called a 19 players squad for the first round of the championship:

Matheus, Xadas, Danilo, Rosic, Jefferson, Hassan, Rui Fonte, Fábio M., Fransérgio, Raul Silva, Vukcevic, Paulinho, R. Horta, A. Moreira, Bruno Viana, R. Esgaio, Jordão, Neto, and M. Goiano.

Wilson Eduardo is out of this session as the player has suffered an injury in the right adductor.

Braga takes the trip to Lisbon with three new players among the group, the return of Bruno Jordão and the debutants Neto and Paulinho. So early high octane action is expected of these young guns in the match.
