Braga vs Wolves Match Preview
Wolves travel to Braga amid increasing rumours at the time of writing that their manager Nuno Espirito Santo, due to return to his homeland, is being lined up for the Arsenal job.
Nuno had gone odds-on in places to succeed Unai Emery as the Gunners boss and with 48 hours until this Europa League match kicks off, there was still plenty of time for him to forego the trip back to his native Portugal and head in the direction of north London instead.
But as of Tuesday evening it was still only speculation and you would have to assume that uppermost in Nuno’s mind was gaining the one point Wolves need to book their place in the knockout stage of the Europa League.
That will not be easy against Braga, who are the only team to have taken points off Wolves in Group K when they won 1-0 at Molineux on the opening match-day with a second-half goal from Ricardo Horta despite having been outplayed.
Braga sit top of the table, unbeaten and with their solitary failure to win in four games so far having been a 2-2 home draw with Slovan Bratislava – a result that will give Wolves plenty of optimism here.
The visitors are in good form, but that is also true of Braga after three straight victories and with home advantage Ricardo Sa Pinto’s side may just complete the double and leave Wolves hoping Slovan Bratislava do not win away to Besiktas if they are to advance with a game to spare.
