Rangers vs Braga Match Preview

Rangers returned to the winning ways as they beat Livingston (1-0) on Sunday afternoon, where Steven Gerrard’s men put on another solid defensive display and Scott Arfield untangled the contest just before the hour mark. They now host Braga for their Europa League clash looking to build on the display and earn an advantage ahead of the trip to Portugal.

Gers have lost on their consistency and this could be more worrying as they fell ten points behind Premiership pace-setters Celtic, denied points three times in six league games since January. They will need more to get past the Portuguese rivals and high stakes surely promise a tough defensive line once again.

Sporting Braga have, on the other hand, beaten Benfica (0-1) over the weekend and proven their fine form once again as Joao Palhinha bagged the only goal in Lisbon and allowed them to build on a top 4 spot. They bagged nine wins and a draw in ten outings across competitions and will surely be no sitting ducks on the day either.

Archbishops kept three clean sheets in five outings despite a tough schedule since late January and Micael Sequeira has great ground to build on. They beat Porto (1-0), Moreirense (1-2), and Sporting CP (1-0) along the way too while Gil Vicente (2-2) snatched a rare draw in Braga along the way.

They felt rock-solid on many of those occasions and we expect a tough challenge now as well. We’ll thus stick our necks out for them to capitalize on Gers’ struggles for stability and we’ll go for a Double Chance – Draw or Braga to win at 8/11 with Paddy Power.

We have seen both sides put on tough defensive displays lately and we’re now hoping for more of the same. With high stakes involved, going for Under 2.5 Goals FT feels like great value at bet365, which has caught the eye of many in the know already.
