Braga v Crvena Match Preview
Heading into this game, Sporting Braga know that they need to at least draw against the Serbian giants who have had a really great journey in the Europa League so far. Crvena, or the Red Star Belgrade, are on top of Group F with 10 points from five games.
The Portuguese outfit on the other hand, are in second place and have nine points, followed closely by Midtjylland who need to beat Ludogorets and then hope for Crvena to do them a favor.
The Serbians could still get knocked out of the competition and are thus likely to approach this encounter cautiously. They haven’t scored a lot of goals in the competition either, finding the net only five times.
Braga on the other hand, have scored freely this time around, managing 11 goals. However, the biggest problem for the home side is their porous defense that has leaked in eight goals already. Therefore, as long as the Serbs hold firm, they have every chance of finding the net.
