Slovan Bratislava vs Braga Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 10 December 2019, 19:07

As Wolves are closing in on their one-point lead, Braga can afford to take no chances this week. With Slovan Bratislava salvaging a point last time around, Braga will need to bring their A-game to Tehelne pole this Thursday.

Their only prior meeting was the reverse fixture of this matchup which finished in a 2-2 draw.

Slovan Bratislava vs Braga Prediction

Slovan Bratislava admitted their third consecutive defeat in Group K after Besiktas mustered a comeback to post a 2-1 scorecard in their last clash on the road. The loss was certainly a new low for them in their campaign, as they had taken down the same Turkish outfit in their opening clash by a 4-2 scorecard.

With no more than a win and draw to their name, the hosts are currently sitting third in the cluster. And are just one point above rock-bottom side Besiktas and six points adrift of second-placed Wolves.

Meanwhile, Braga are yet to stumble in the Europa League. The visitors pulled off a 3-3 draw against Wolves at home in their last clash, despite trailing by two goals at the end of the first half.

It is also worth mentioning that the away side have been calm and composed in the trips across Europe so far. They have secured maximum points from their last two outings.

Furthermore, the visitors have dropped points just twice in their previous five group clashes. Currently, they are at the top of the cluster with a slender one-point advantage.

Given the stellar form that Braga are on, Slovan Bratislava are the underdogs to come out on top this week.

However, the hosts managed to grab a share of the spoils in their maiden clash with this foe, that too on the road. Taking into account the home advantage at hand for them and the fact Braga salvaged just a point in their most recent Europa clash as well, the safest punt would be opting for a Double chance.

Additionally, Braga have not kept a clean sheet since their opening day 1-0 win over Wolves. They have since gone on to concede seven goals, one of which was on the road.

Moreover, five of the eight goals for Slovan Bratislava in Group K have come from their clashes on home soil.

Since their last h2h meeting also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, expect more of the same when the two sides lock horns this week.
