Spartak Moscow – Sporting Braga, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SPARTAK - BRAGA
Although Spartak claimed that the Europa League was not a high priority for them, the Russians played quite strongly against Braga and may even regret the bad luck of allowing them to score at the end of the match. Now everything is in their hands again. In the championship they took a very valuable victory against Krylya Sovetov and already share 1st place with 4 more teams.
Braga is hesitant in defense for now. In the last round in Portugal, it drew with Gil Vicente, before losing to Sporting. Now their goal in Russia will be to score a goal and try not to allow 3. They sold quite a few players in the midfield, but the only midfielder they bought was the one from Los Angeles, Horta. This has changed the dynamics in the midfield and is currently vulnerable in the zone.
Expert view : No matter how the match starts, we think there will be a goal in it. At the moment, both teams are scoring a lot of goals, and their defenses are not very synchronized and constantly allow. The first game we saw more closed play and caution was because of the specifics of the match and rather the exception. We will now bet on goals and more specifically BTTS at 1.66.
