AEK Athens vs Sporting Braga Prediction

AEK Athens’s only win in the EL group stages, this term came against Zorya, with the latter at the ultimate bottom of the table this season. They will host after losing their previous EL clash at home. The host will return home after a 1-2 win on the road against Asteras in the Greece Superleague.

On the other hand, Braga has always been a stronger side than the host. The Portuguese side has a four-point lead over the host in the EL table as it stands. Visiting on the back of a draw with Leicester, the visitor will have improved morale in the dugout.

Based on these stats, the match is sizing to be a low-scoring affair. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably come in handy from the goals area. The double chance favoring Sporting Braga will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter.

AEK Athens vs Sporting Braga Betting tips

  • Under 3.5 goals @ 1.40 (2/5).
