Braga vs Hoffenheim – Europa League: After having won in Hoffenheim, Sporting de Braga and their manager…
Abel Ferreira, will have conscience of two things: Firstly, that they could, in fact, have an impactful run in the Europa League.
Secondly, that the Germans would travel to Portugal eager to set the record straight. Nothing to fear. The Portuguese were aware, since the day of the draw, that this group C would be a tough nut to crack.
Ludogorets ended up taking over the lead of the group, much thanks to wins over the Germans and the Portuguese. But everything is still wide open.
For Hoffenheim, the objective is trying to win the 2 remaining matches, as a way to reposition themselves better for qualification.
For Braga, with this match at home, in front of their own fans, there’s the opportunity to try and close out an issue that, if it’s prolonged, might end up being out of their control.
That’s because the Portuguese team hasn’t been very strong controlling situations. They have been quite the opposite.
The success from Abel Ferreira’s team has come exactly from the matches where they are able to establish themselves on a lower block, with deeper lines, conquering, then, terrain to breathe and look for the win.
The responsibility of having the ball and having to decide is not their favourite context.
Braga vs Hoffenheim – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For Hoffenheim, the Europa League ended up being an undesirable gift, considering the fact that the team had the chance to play in the Champions League.
But with all things considered, I believe that Julian Nagelsmann’s side realizes they still have a word to say in this competition, while knowing at the same time that they can even gain another European status, in the knock-out rounds, in case they are able to go far.
This is some sort of revival after a terrible start. Braga knows what’s coming. They will have to be well prepared.
