Primiera League:

Diego Lainez continues to enjoy his move to the Primiera League and he has shown that he can be a high caliber player when he sees action on the field. While he hasn’t become a full blown starter he has done a good job of taking advantage of the minutes he has played. He would be a crucial piece in Braga’s 2-0 victory against Vizela. The Mexican would enter in the 71st minute for Andre Horta and secured an assist for the game’s first goal in the 83rd minute and helped break the deadlock that Braga found themselves in. This is Lainez’s second assist of the season. With this win S.C Braga are in second place with 19 points and trail league leaders Benfica by two points. Lainez has been able to adapt quickly to the Portuguese League and if he can continue having good performances he has an opportunity to become a starter.
