This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Primeira Liga, they got a home tie against Vitória Guimarães by (3‑3). In the last 10 home matches o Braga has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1.

Braga won a very important advantage in the first leg of this qualifier by beating Sion by 1-2. Rafa and Stojiljkovic score the goals of victory. At this match the coach Paulo Fonseca should not make big changes on the team, trying to repeat the great performance achieved in the first leg. Like the last match in this competition, Stojiljkovic and Hassan must occupy the earliest positions of the team. Remember that the first speaker is the best scorer of the team with 11 scored goals. For this match the home coach won’t count on Nikola Vukcevic, suspended, and Djavan, Crislan and Ringtad, injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Matheus, Ricardo Ferreira, Baiano, W. Boly, Marcelo Goiano, Josué, Rafa Silva, Mauro, Luiz Carlos, N. Stojiljković, Koka.
Coach: Paulo Fonseca.

Analysis of Sion

After the home loss in the 1st leg, the away team comes to this 2nd leg with a disadvantage of 1 goals and the hard task of having to come back from a negative result in an away match. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 9 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 15 conceded. In their last match, for the Super League, they got an away loss against o Grasshopper by (3‑0). In the last 10 away matches o Sion has won 2, tied 3 and lost 5.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 4 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 5 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition.

Sion comes for this match after a defeat against Grasshopper, thus adding a second successive defeat in official matches. Despite going through a difficult stage, Sion should be presented in Portugal with an offensive strategy to get around the disadvantage on the qualifier. Thus, it’s foreseeable that the coach Didier Tholot will play in 4-2-3-1 Konaté being the most offensive reference of the team. This player is the best scorer of the team with 10 scored goals. For this match only Ilombe Mboyo is unavailable due to injury.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Vaņins, V. Vanczák, V. Rüfli, P. Jagne, B. Ndoye, Carlitos, E. Fernandes, V. Salatić, T. Gekas, E. Assifuah, M. Konaté.
Coach: D. Tholot.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be both teams to score at least one goal. Taking into account the need of Sion to win and the offensive quality of the home team, it’s foreseeable that this match will be marked by great offensive propensity and with chances for both teams. Apart from this, the last matches of the two teams ended with some goals on the scoreboard.
