Sporting Clube de Braga B, commonly known as Sporting de Braga B or just Braga B, is a Portuguese football team. It is the reserve team of S.C. Braga. Reserve teams in Portugal play in the same league system as the senior team, rather than in a reserve team league. However, they cannot play in the same division as their senior team, therefore Braga B is ineligible for promotion to the Primeira Liga and also cannot play in the Taça de Portugal and Taça da Liga.

Early into the 2018−19 campaign, Sá became the first team's first-choice due to a serious knee injury contracted by Matheus. [2] His Primeira Liga debut took place on 31 August, in a 1−0 away win over G.D. Chaves. [3]

The 2018–19 Primeira Liga was the 85th season of the Primeira Liga, the top professional league for Portuguese association football clubs. Porto were the defending champions but finished behind Benfica, who became champions for a record 37th time while equalling their own scoring record of 103 goals in the 1963–64 season.

Primeira Liga top division in Portuguese football

The Primeira Liga, also known as Liga NOS for sponsorship reasons, is the top professional association football division of the Portuguese football league system. It is organised and supervised by the Liga Portuguesa de Futebol Profissional, also known as Liga Portugal. As of the 2014–15 season, the Primeira Liga is contested by 18 teams, with the two lowest placed teams relegated to the LigaPro and replaced by the top-two non-reserve teams from this division, except in the 2018–19 season in which the three lowest placed teams were relegated to the LigaPro due to the integration in the Primeira Liga of Gil Vicente in the following season. The Portuguese Football Federation appealed to proceed with this integration as soon as possible.

In January 2019, Sá was voted Braga's Newcomer of the Year. [4]
