Braga vs Hafnarfjordur: Preview & Prediction
Braga, Abel Braga’s team still does not convince with their football.
It is true that the victories give confidence and in this aspect Braga found if, won the last 3 games and this always gives confidence, however the quality display remains very shaky and this Braga has much to evolve still.
We can already see the influence of some players, cases of young promising Bruno Xadas who is quite creative and despite his tender 19 years, is not afraid to take on and be a protagonist.
Pedro Santos and Rui Fonte were sold and looking like they did not, it’s about two players that had importance in this team. In the attack there is still Hassan or WIlson Eduardo, not forgetting Ricardo Horta or Fábio Martins who are also important players.
Braga eliminated the AIK from Stockholm with some difficulties but now has an even better result that opens up good prospects of entering the group stage of the Europa League.
FH the two-time Icelandic champions do not have a very strong football and are a team with some limitations that were very visible in the game with Braga at home last week in which to win by 1-0 lost 2-1.
Having been Icelandic champions, this gave them the chance to play in the previous qualifying round of the Champions League, but they were defeated by Maribor losing both games.
They are a team that in defensive terms make some mistakes and even in ball circulation, do not inspire much confidence. They end up being affirmed at national level, but for this level they are still pretty blue whites and a Braga QB was enough to win in Iceland.
Braga have everything to make it to the group stage of the Europa League and would be a scandal if it did not happen. I believe that they win this game, but they should manage it in the best way not putting too high intensity.
I see a Braga coming on the field something expectant, playing with the advantage of the first game, looking for the goal but not in a very pressing and always taking care and defensive attention to not concede goals.
The FH will also have to play with lower lines to avoid conceding goals and take advantage of all offensive moves to bother Braga.
I see a somewhat balanced encounter in the first half, possibly with a goal but no more than that during the first 45 minutes. Even though Braga will score, then they will manage the meeting, even because Sunday comes FC Porto.
