Only the center at FC Porto de Braga, but should only play after the competitive break
The return to the Raúl Silva center is near, but it should not be Saturday at FC Porto. The Brazilian, who contracted a muscular accident on August 16 at the Zorya reception for the Europa League, recently returned to work on the orders of Abel Ferreira, but for many reasons this is not the ideal time to re-introduce Raúl Silva into eleven years. He is the only player who scored against FC Porto in the Braga jersey: last season he signed a 1-1 draw in a match that ended with a 3-1 win over Dragons.
On the one hand, Bruno Viana-Pablo Santos, who was formed in the match when Raúl was injured (Pablo left the bank), started all 11 matches that followed and gave all the guarantees – eight wins, three draws, eight goals and five goals with an empty sheet. On the other hand, the competitive halt after the next match day for team appointments is a more favorable context for the reintegration of a player who in the last season has completed 40 matches for Braga. After his visit to the Dragon, Abel Ferreira's team returns to play at home 24 in front of Praiense (Portuguese Championship) to count the Portuguese Cup, which could be a good opportunity for Raúl to start recovering pace.
Despite the Brazilian record with FC Porto, four other players already scored blue and white, three of them in the Dragon, but in different sweaters. Wilson Eduardo, in 2012/13, scored the goal of the Académica team, which lost 2-1. In 2015/16, Fransérgio contributed to Marítimo's triumph (1-3), and shortly afterwards, Novais signed Rio Ave's goal, which linked a ball. The only one to visit was Eduardo last season. Brazil scored the first goal of Estoril, which lost 1-3.
