Başakşehir VS Braga

Preview
İstanbul Başakşehir and Sporting Braga meet at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage).

Analysis of İstanbul Başakşehir

After 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses, the home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 5 points won. In the last match, they have won (1‑2) in an away match against Ludogorets, after in the previous round they have tied (1‑1) at home against Hoffenheim. In their last match, for the Süper Lig, they got a home win against Osmanlıspor by (1‑0). In the last 10 home matches İstanbul Başakşehir has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 12 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

Basaksehir is still dreaming with a spot in the next phase, but they will need to beat Braga, Ludogorets must lose and they still need to build a goal margin. They are in a great phase, as they have 9 consecutive matches without a loss, and reach this match with 2 consecutive wins. Their last win was in their league, where they are currently leading, with the second best defense. However, it hasn't been repeating in this competition, as they have the second worst defense in the group, and the worst attack. They should use a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Visca as their offensive reference.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Günok, G. Clichy, J. Attamah, Júnior Caiçara, A. Epureanu, E. Višća, Marcio Mossoró, K. Frei, G. İnler, İ. Kahveci, M. Erdinç.

Analysis of Sporting Braga

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 10 points won, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have tied an away match against Ludogorets by (1‑1). In the last round, they have won a home match against Hoffenheim by (3‑1). In their last match, for the Primeira Liga, they got a home win against Paços de Ferreira by (3‑0). In the last 4 UEFA Europa League away matches Sporting Braga has a record of 2 wins and 2 draws.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 9 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. In 9 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times but have turned the score around in 4.

Braga is the only team in this group that secured their spot in the next phase, but they are still determined to hold on to their lead. They are in a good phase, motivated after 3 consecutive wins, the last one in their league, where they were very superior, had almost 5 times the amount of shots their opponent had, and had a big home win against Paços Ferreira. Now, they are in 4th place in their country and with a great defense, that is also showing quality in this competition, as they have the best attack in the group. They should use a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1 formation, with Jefferson as their highlight on the left.

Confirmed Lineup: Matheus, Raúl Silva, Bruno Vianna , Jefferson, Ricardo Esgaio, N. Vukčević, Bruno Xadas, Danilo Barbosa, André Horta, Dyego Sousa, Fábio Martins.

Betting suggestion:

This should be a balanced match, as one of the teams is looking to advance and the other is looking to secure first place. Both are in similar realities, which is being a highlight in their country without much international relevance. The previous match between these two teams was a win for the Portuguese side, playing at home. Now, as the home team needs the positive result, we expect an open match, with good scoring chances for both sides, so it is a great option to back a match where both teams will score.
