As part of the Europa League group stage match, Ludogorets and Braga football players will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
Last season, Ludogorets won its tenth anniversary title of Bulgarian champion. This allowed the team to reach the qualifying stages of the Champions League, but on the way to the group round, the team was eliminated from the Champions League, having managed to make it to the Europa League. During the two meetings of the current championship, the Eagles were able to gain only 1 point to their asset, which allowed them to sit on the third line in the standings. In the Bulgarian championship, Valdas Dambrauskas' team is confidently leading in the standings after nine matches, where they managed to get 8 wins, and also beat Tsarsko Selo with a score of 4:0 in the last match.
"Braga" stopped in the last championship only in fourth place in the standings. In the off-season, the team of guests managed to strengthen, but so far the Portuguese are only in sixth place in the standings. The "gunsmiths" have 3 victories and 4 peaceful outcomes, which brought "Braga" 13 points, which is 8 less than the leader of the Primeira. In the last meeting, the guest team drew with Boavista (2:2). After two meetings of the current Europa League championship, Braga scored a victory over Midtjullann.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Sisinho (red card) – Ludogorets.
- Vanderson (injury), Kalu (broken leg), Marin (ankle) – all Ludogorets.
- Under question:
- Karma (ankle) – "Braga".
Statistics and figures:
- "Braga" is quoted as a favorite among bookmakers;
- Ludogorets has 4 wins in 5 meetings;
- "Braga" knows no defeats in the last 5 meetings;
- "Braga" lost 1 match out of 5 previous ones;
- The rivals played each other twice;
- In the last match, the opponents painted the world - 1:1.
I don't think Ludogorets will lose on their own field with today's opponent. Most likely, we are waiting for the confident success of the home team. As insurance for the game, we take a zero head start in favor of the Bulgarian team.
