Braga vs Konyaspor Predictions

These two seem to be also-rans in this group, with Shakhtar runaway leaders. Gent are in pole position to take second place, even after a 5-0 thrashing in Ukraine last month. That’s because neither Braga nor Konyaspor have won a game in this group yet.

There seems to be a gulf between the top and bottom two, while neither of these two took their chance to claim a win last month. These two drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture. A win in this game would give them a chance of making the last 32, the problem is neither of these two sides are in form.

Braga have failed to win any of their last five games in the Europa League. Konyaspor entered this competition for the first time this season, and they’re yet to win a game. Their home game against Braga was probably their best chance to claim a win in this group. It’s tough to see them pulling off an away win, especially given their recent poor results.

Konyaspor have failed to win any of their last four in all competitions, while they have one win from their last five league games. They’ve kept a clean sheet in just 11% of their matches this term, which is a really poor return from their defence. They aren’t scoring enough to overcome their leaky defence and win, so it’s hard to see how they can come back from Portugal with the points.

They’ve managed just a goal per game in the Turkish league, and they’ve drawn a blank in their last two. They’ve been even more goal shy in their Europa League matches this term, scoring just 0.3 goals per match. Their lack of goals is a problem Braga share; the Portuguese side have found the net just twice in their three group matches.

Braga have a shot conversion rate of just 5%, while Konyaspor’s is even lower, at 4%. These two are far from clinical, and it’s hard to see where their goals are going to come from here. The visitors have seen two goals or fewer in 78% of their domestic matches. Neither of these two have had more than two goals in any of their Europa League games this term.

Given their goal-shy nature, backing a low scoring encounter here seems like a smart bet. Braga concede just 0.6 goals a match in Liga NOS, and they shouldn’t have any problems against the low scoring visitors. We’re backing under 2.5 goals here, which is priced at 4/5 with bet365.
