Spartak Moscow vs Sporting Braga Stats
- Braga have been quite unpredictable on the road and earned just one win in four trips since mid-July
- Spartak bounced over the weekend and earned their fifth win in six outings as they beat Krylya Sovetov (1-2)
- Both sides created chances but we still saw just a single goal in the first leg
Spartak Moscow vs Sporting Braga Match Preview
Spartak Moscow host Sporting Braga for the return match of their Europa League Play-offs clash looking to make up for a 1-0 loss suffered in Portugal, where just a single goal from Ricardo Horta midway through the second half made the difference and gave Sa Pinto’s men an important advantage ahead of the trip to Russia.
Narodnaya Komanda have been rather confident lately and the first-leg loss only interrupted their winning streak, where they beat Krylya Sovetov (1-2) with a comeback orchestrated by Jordan Larsson and Guus Til and bagged their fifth win in six outings across competitions.
They’ve been very tough to beat at Otkrytiye Arena and we’ve seen them show it off on many occasions, which should make it a tough task for Braga who struggle for consistency on the road lately – having earned just a single win in four trips with draws at Maritimo (0-0), Gil Vicente (1-1 most recently), and a loss at Sporting CP (2-1) seen along the way.
Os Arcebispos have been conceding numbers of goals on the road and this could be even more worrying ahead of the Thursday’s clash, where Matheus saw three past him in two Europa League trips this term. Still, getting a goal could see the visitors reap the rewards of the last week’s win as this shapes to be a different occasion altogether.
We will now back Spartak Moscow to bag a win in front of the home fans and while it’s questionable if it will be enough to make their way to the Group Stage, going for a Home win feels like great value at 27/20 with William Hill at this point.
We should be in for another exciting occasion and we hope to see more goals this time around, as we also stick with a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/6 with bet365 – which has seen many big hitters lumping already as well.
