Braga will be aiming to recover from a massive 5-0 loss to Sporting CP when they take on Qarabag in the Europa League last 32, first leg. Braga are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they surely want to get their job done in the first leg. Simon Banza is unlikely to feature as the 27-year-old forward played for D.R. Congo in the AFCON third place playoff against South Africa, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.

Gurban Gurbanov’s troops, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-3 draw with Sabah Baku at the weekend and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Braga’s party at Estadio Municipal de Braga. To make things even worse for the visiting team, Marko Vesovic is banned for the match following his sending-off in a 2-1 win over Hacken.

Prediction: 3-0 (Braga)

Braga

"Braga performed well in the group stage of the Champions League. Yes, the team went down, but it is worth remembering that in its quartet were Real Madrid, Napoli and Union, which earlier had a great season in the German elite. So 1/16th of the LE final is a decent result. As for Sporting's condition, it approaches this important event after a minimal victory over Moreirenci (1:0) and a crushing defeat from Sporting Lisbon 0:5.

Qarabag

"Karabakh", in turn, initially participated in the group stage of the Europa League. The team showed a pretty good game, losing on points only to German Bayer. Thus, the Azerbaijani club got a ticket to the Europa League playoffs. In the 1/16 finals "Qarabag" will face a difficult task, because it meets a serious opponent by its standards. So it will not be surprising if in the first match the guests will sit back in defense.
