Coming from a sort of rollercoaster season, that ended in a positive 3rd place, but left a feeling of overall disappointment, as club counted mainly on a very poor season from opponent's Sporting to finish in top-3. Braga was brilliant in the short period Rúben Amorim was in charge, but was inconsistent in the rest of the season. Bracarenses are hoping that this season new gaffer Carlos Carvalhal will give Braga a firm upgrade into being a top-3 team in the country completely on their own, regardless of how strong opponents may (not) be. As almost every other team, Braga's squad seems currently unsettled, and some key players may not be around in the next few weeks. Star attackers Paulinho and Ricardo Horta have been heavily linked with moves out. Should the two remain, Braga will surely be a strong competitor for the top-3 places, but even if those two leave, there has been some good new signings that can step up, like experienced Nico Gaitan or the exciting Iuri Medeiros. Castro and Musrati are also important addings in midfield. Carvalhal usually employs an attractive, possession 4-3-3 commanding approach, but he presented a back-3 during pre-season. Perhaps we'll see a versatile, morphing Braga in 20-21, making full use of the strong and deep squad they possess. Gaitan's physical condition is currently the team's major concern. If the former Benfica star is anywhere near the form he presented on his years in the country, Braga will be stronger than ever, but if the advanced age means a slower and injury prone unit, the squad will feel short in talent in the creative department, especially since there's no Trincão around.

Target


Messing with the traditional hierarchy in the country and finishing in a top-3 position.

Season Review
2019/2020

№3: SC Braga

A strange season for Bracarenses. There was often the feeling that the club was underachieving, but in the end they celebrated a relatively deserved 3rd place. Braga had a total of 5 coaches during the season, which will never be good news. Abel built the team but left before kick-off; Sá Pinto made a great run in Europa League but compromised domestically. Then Rúben Amorim arrived and lasted only 9 rounds… but for the best possible reason: Braga was so good under Amorim that big team Sporting paid a record 10M fee to sign with him immediately. 25 points in possible 27 and, most importantly, a cup title: a dream period in just 2 months. Custódio and Artur Jorge were never able to keep the standards of Amorim’s period, but the team was still able to compete for the 3rd place against big team Sporting and finish the season on the ‘medals’. The squad confirmed that amazing quality, very close from the level of the top 2 teams in the country and arguably stronger than Sporting. Many options for every place and some youngsters popping up as a promise for the future. Future ‘Culé’, Trincão had a fantastic end of season, proving “a posteriori” what motivated Barcelona to sign with him. Fransérgio and Ricardo Horta were also impressive. But the best player can’t be other than striker Paulinho, possibly the best forward currently in Primeira League. Next season will be the 100th anniversary for the club. It will perhaps be too soon to fight for the title but, should chairman Salvador find a suitable manager, it can be the definite season for Braga to become the 4th big in the country.
