      Groningen vs Braga Predictions

      It’s a dead rubber match-up for both teams, neither club is likely to play an absolute best XI with critical league fixtures coming up before the Christmas break, but for two traditionally defensive-minded teams, that could make this an entertaining game.

      Braga lost on their trip to Marseille, but besides that one result, they’ve been pretty close to faultless all through the campaign. They showed it once again in the last round of games finding a way to grab an injury time winner against Slovan Liberec and avoiding any last game nerves.

      They face a Groningen who will feel disappointed with their overall performances and form during this campaign. It’s been a tough ride for the Dutch side and they have just the single point, an away draw against Liberec, to show for it. Worst of all, they have yet to treat their home fans to a goal in this competition this season.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Under-rating Braga

      It has happened a couple of times in this competition, for whatever reason, the oddsmakers sell low on Braga and we still think it’s a mistake. We’ve been right four out of five teams and we’ll happily make it five out of six. The current odds are better than even and that’s too good to resist.

      2. Braga combat Groningen strengths

      They will play patient football, they’ll control possession and they’ll happily play at Groningen’s pace, it’s their pace also. They’ve got no reason to get frustrated and we can see them simply controlling this football game and picking their opponents off selectively.

      3. Groningen

      Dutch Eredivisie form is poor, their Europa League campaign has been weak, we have no reason to back them to get anything out of this one.
