Braga vs Zorya Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 16th August 2018
Braga vs Zorya – Europa League :Braga is one of the good teams of Portuguese football
This is a team that has conquered its own respect on this competition and that already has a good experience on the Europa League.
The Portuguese team intends to get closer to the fight for the league title this year and they didn’t deny that they have the objective of reaching the Europa League’s group stage.
Braga has a reasonable roster and they can very well make some interesting things this season.
On the 1st leg encounter, they drew 1-1 in Ukraine, and that’s a result that opens up good perspectives for their qualification.
On the weekend they have responded well, and they have beaten Nacional by 4-2 on their debut in the league. That was a motivating result that gives them confidence for this tie that has a lot of importance for the Portuguese team.
Zorya: This Ukrainian side has been making good campaigns on the last couple of years and they have been managing to qualify for the Europa League.
On their league, Shakhtar and Dinamo Kiev are by far the better teams, but this Zorya is sometimes reminiscent of Dnipro that was also making interesting campaigns but that is now well below those levels.
Zorya, just like Braga, has the ambition of playing in the Europa League’s group stage.
On the 1st leg, they weren’t superior, and they have left the impression that they will tend to struggle at Braga’s stadium, in Portugal.
I should also mention that this tie is still wide open though, with the 1-1 that was recorded in Ukraine.
In the league, they have won by 1-0 away from home this weekend and they have 7 points conquered in 4 matches.
Braga vs Zorya – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Sporting de Braga is favourite on this encounter and there’s no way to hide it. This Portuguese team is used to these European nights and advancing on this European round is essential for them.
They are superior to this Zorya, but the Ukrainians are dangerous on the counter-attack and Braga has to be aware of those moves.
Braga, playing at home, should dominate the encounter, having more ball possession and also, as the match progresses, having more goal scoring opportunities and I believe that they will score goals and defeat this Eastern European team.
Braga has been playing well, they have good solutions on their roster, and I believe they will win here and consequentially advance onto the next round.
