Braga vs Besiktas Match Preview
Besiktas bagged two important Super Lig wins as they beat Galatasaray (1-0) and Antalyaspor (1-2) over the past two weeks, climbing the table and coming within points of pace-setters Alanyaspor. They now travel to Braga for their Europa League clash and surely hope to build on the performances in search of revenge for a 1-2 loss two weeks ago.
Black Eagles have struggled for consistency on the road and while they’ve been scoring goals, they found it hard to capitalize with a high total of 15 conceded on six trips across competitions this term. They have felt more organized at the back lately and Abdullah Avci will be desperate to build on it in search of first Europa League points.
Sporting Braga have seen quite a contrasting spell of form lately and they’ve had a disappointing week, where they suffered a 2-0 loss at Boavista and were held off by Famalicao in front of the home fans. They’ve been conceding goals regularly but now saw it costly, which will be more worrying.
Archbishops have conceded at least a goal in 16 of their 20 outings across competitions this season, which sees them mid-table in Primeira Liga and unable to create a gap behind them in Europa League Group K. We’ve seen them tough at home ground and we still see them showing off on the day!
We will thus back Braga to secure all three points in an exciting contest on Thursday evening, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 9/4 with bet365. We hope to see them keep hold of the top spot and points here would surely mean a lot for their top 2 ambitions.
Besiktas will be far from sitting ducks, though, and this could be the last train to knockout stages for them. They’ll thus surely employ an attacking approach and this serves as further evidence for such a bet, as we now also go for a high-scoring occasion with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/11 with William Hill.
