Braga – Basaksehir: Preview & Prediction
Sporting Braga welcomes the Turks of Istanbul BB at the AXA next Thursday at 20:05 in the second matchday of Group C of the Europa League. The Minho Warriors are in a series of four consecutive UEFA competition victories and receive the Istanbul BB, the team with no out-of-doors win in Europe. The Bracarenses begin to show signs that they will return to the great achievements, with each passing day being more and better team. In the first day of this group C, the Arsenal players moved to the difficult terrain of Hoffenheim and beat the Germans by two balls to one. They are leaders of the group, with three points, followed by Istanbul BB and Ludogorets, with one point each. This Sunday, the minhotos won in Tondela by 1-2 and ascended to the fifth position of the Portuguese championship. The Turkish side have not won for three consecutive games. And after an early season in which they promised a lot, the Turks now seem to start losing energy, showing some difficulties in finding the way of the goal. They lost to Genclerbirligi on Saturday for a 0-0 draw and fell to sixth in the Turkish championship, six points behind leaders Galatasaray. Istanbul BB is, however, a powerful team with international players such as Gael Glichy, Edin Visca, Gokhan Inler, Elia and Emmanuel Adebayor, so they enter all fields to win. We believe that this will be a game with goals.
In three of the last five games played by Sporting Braga there were over 2.5 goals.
In four of Istanbul BB’s last five games away from home there were over 2.5 goals.
The Turks have scored at least one goal in four of the last five away games.
In the last three matches of Sp. Braga for the Europa League there were more than 2.5 goals.
Betting Braga Istanbul Bb – Our prediction
Two good teams face-to-face, filled with players of great individual quality. On the one hand a Sp. Braga that gives signs of functioning increasingly better as a team; on the other, a Istanbul BB that has many stars but is going through a bad phase. We believe in a game with more than 2.5 goals.
