    Braga

      Tip Reasoning

      You’ve probably heard of Sion because they were in Liverpool’s Europa League group, eventually finishing second in the group behind the English football giants and edging Bordeaux out of the competition. Although they played excellent football throughout, it is perhaps worth noting that Sion’s qualification for the knockout phase of Europa League competition was really based around two results – a home victory over Rubin Kazan and a 1-0 away win against Bordeaux. They then drew three games, including two against Liverpool and actually lost to Rubin in their match-up in Kazakhstan.

      Sporting Braga enjoyed an excellent Europa League qualifying campaign and they’ve already just about assured qualification for next season’s competition by securing a comfortable margin for fourth place behind the Portuguese Primeira Liga’s “big three” in Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Porto. They conceded just four times in six games as their ball possession game allowed them to claim a real stranglehold upon, and eventually ensured that they topped, a group including Marseille, Groningen and Slovan Liberec.

      Head-to-Head

      Neither club is perhaps a household name in European football competitions and they haven’t met previously, but both have the potential to develop football programmes that make them a mainstay of Europa League competition, both will be a tough out in this competition too.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Braga’s football has arguably evolved over the course of the season. Success in the very first part of their campaign came down to moving the ball slowly, frustrating opponents and essentially aiming to win games 1-0. That’s not the case anymore and they’ve scored 15 goals in their last six games alone. We don’t expect them to expose themselves completely against Sion. On the flip side, Sion were a feisty side in group play, especially at home. We like this to be a balanced game and at 21/20, we think that the Both teams to score market is a can’t miss opportunity.
