RIO AVE V BRAGA
Sitting 4th in the table, just 3 points behind 3rd placed Benfica, Braga have now won 4 of their last 5 away league outings, drawing the other, while they have lost just 1 of their last 12 in the division.
In contrast, hosts Rio Ave have won just 1 of their last 7 league matches and only 2 of their last 7 on home turf.
Still, the hosts have a decent record at home to Braga, winning 4 of the last 5 at this venue, including a remarkable 4:3 in last season´s corresponding fixture.
Both can score with Braga´s quality earning a crucial 2:1 away day success.
Prediction: Both teams to score
WOLVES V SHEFFIELD UNITED
A demoralised Sheffield United travels to the midlands on Saturday to take on Wolves at Molineux with the visitors' relegation fate all but secure following another defeat last weekend.
Indeed, having now lost 8 of their last 9, Sheffield United are now cut adrift at the bottom, a whopping 18 points shy of safety, and with just 7 games to go, confirmation of their relegation will come sooner, rather than later.
While the hosts are hardly in great form, they did manage to end a run of 4 without victory by taking 3 points at Fulham, and they should be confident of following that win up with another success here against a visiting side that seems to be devoid of any form or confidence.
Prediction: Wolves win
