Besiktas vs Braga for the Europa League group match on Thursday at Vodafone Park Stadium.
We present a match for the third round of this group K of the Europa League group stage.
Besiktas and the away team of Braga play a competitive match at Vodafone Park Stadium in Istanbul.
The home team comes to this game looking to add a good result in this group. The Turkish team still has no points.
Thus, it has 2 losses in the previous meetings, being beaten by Slovan Bratislava 4-2 on matchday 1 and also 1-0 by Wolves in the last game.
The Braga team has a clearly positive course in the competition so far, had it not been for the slip against Slovan at home, where they were levelled by defensive errors.
The Braga team would be at the top of the standings, but still following with 4 points added up. Yet, a good result in this match will cement the team bid to qualify.
We must understand the characteristics shown by Besiktas and Braga so far this season.
The Turkish team is going through a sporting, economic and financial crisis, so they have a markedly less regular course.
On the other side, Braga tends to be a team that presents itself with a very dynamic football and with a lot of offensive content, which tends to make it possible to score a high number of goals but also with more significant tendencies to concede.
I can see this meeting going on with an exciting and offensive football, which will allow the goals to appear throughout the match and by both teams in play.
