Braga vs Wolves Prediction
Braga had taken on newly-promoted Gil Vicente in their latest fixture. The former had the home advantage for the same, and then they put it to good use with an early goal. This 8th-minute goal put the visitors under pressure, and though their frontline tried their best to equalize, the home defense stood strong till the end.
Wolves meanwhile did not pay much heed to their away handicap the prior game week, as they took on tough customers, Bournemouth, in the Premier League. Despite being on the road, they raced to a 0-2 lead by the half-hour mark, and the goals had come in a span of just ten minutes.
Later, the hosts were reduced to ten on the pitch due to a red card. However, the visiting contingent was not able to take advantage of it and had to settle for a 1-2 win.
As things stand, these two teams, Braga, and Wolves are at the top of the group table, separated by a single point. Consequentially, a win will be looked upon as mandatory by both squads, and this easily raises the potential for goals to come from both teams.
Moreover, consider that Braga have scored twice or more in nine of their last eleven overall matches, and in six of their former seven in front of the home crowd. In the meantime, their opposite number have scored in their latest 13 match-ups on the trot, and in their former ten on the road.
As such, BTTS emerges as a strong candidate this Thursday.
In regards to result though, the home advantage and the overall impressive form of Braga will help them in avoiding the loss at the least. In addition, coupling Wolves’ loss in the reverse fixture, and their recent struggles on the road, a Double Chance on Braga should bring good returns.
