With the likes of Wolves, Besiktas etc, Group K was already tipped to be severely competitive, and on top of it, Bratislava is the table-topper now.

Braga vs Slovan Bratislava Prediction
Right away the Archbishops hold an upper hand, as they take part in a much superior domestic league than that of Bratislava. Not just that, but the former is a top-tier prospect in almost all seasons.
On top of that, they have the home advantage for the day and considering they play hosts to the joint-topper with the same three points as themselves, the hosts will be doubly motivated to perform at the highest level. The reason being, a win today will increase their chances of becoming the group champions.
In addition, since February of this year, the side has lost against just Benfica, and Porto at this venue – both of whom enjoy the status of ‘the best’ in Portugal.
Importantly, despite being the top-dog in their country, Martin Sevela’s men have conceded a total of ten goals from their previous three away ties.
Taking an account of the aforementioned stats, the hosts are supposed to have a great outing this match-day.
