Braga vs Brondby
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 15 August 2019
Kick-off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Braga (Braga).
Braga played out a six-goal thriller in their last encounter with Brondby, which saw the hosts walk away with the bragging rights with a 4-2 scoreline in their favor. Although the visitors took the initial lead in that clash, Braga proved that they were too strong a side to keep out, and succumbed to an equalizer three minutes after scoring.
The home team were certainly a lot more clinical up in the attacking third and managed just five shots on target, four of which found the back of the net. Their opponents, on the other hand, were able to beat the keeper just twice despite hitting the target ten times.
The Danish outfit looks far from convincing enough to turn things around and will certainly have their hands full in the return clash this week when they make the trip to Braga.

The 4-2 defeat last week was Brondby’s only prior clash with Braga.
Braga vs Brondby Prediction
The hosts are on a two-match winning streak on home soil and have scored five goals from those fixtures alone while conceding just once. On the other hand, Brondby have failed to keep up a consistent run of form and have returned with a win on just one occasion from their last five outings.
Additionally, the guests have not been faring well in their trips across Europe and have not come out on top in their last two matchups away from home.
Considering that Braga are already up by a two-goal margin, and the fact that they have four away goals at their disposal, the chances of Brondby staging an upset for the home side are certainly looking bleak.
However, irrespective of the result, the side from Denmark have racked up five goals from their last three outings alone. With Braga managing just one clean sheet in their last three games here, there is every reason to believe that Brondby will be able to breach the home team at least once before the end of the ninety minutes.
Hence, a high scoring clash with goals down each end is certainly in the reckoning.
