Gverreiros do Minho celebrated an achievement for the second consecutive season.
The 2020/21 season, which was held on the centenary of the Arsenal club, was a success. Carlos Carvalhal returned to coach Braga 14 seasons after his first experience with the club and led the team to fourth place in the National Championship. In addition, SC Braga reached the 16th European League Final, the Allianz Cup Final, and won the third Portuguese Cup in the club’s history.
