UEFA Europa League – Group-stage 2017/18
Date: Thursday, 14th September 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim will try to revenge their failure of qualifying in the UEFA Champions League groups while Braga aims to profit from their hard earned qualification in the EL groups.
The Kraichgauer is in an incredible form after their UCL elimination as they managed to draw at Leverkusen, win 0-18 in a friendly and beat Bayern Munchen with 2-0 on Wirsol.
The Germans clearly improved since the start of the season and are favorites at winning group C.
The Archbishops struggled to eliminate AIK Stockholm and Hafnafjordur before entering the group stage. They stand on the 9th place in the first league of Portugal losing their last match with 2-0 at Setubal.
The Minho Warriors are clearly not in their best shape as they came out fifth in the 2016/17 season of Primeira Liga.

Hoffenheim is the team in a better form, higher morale and with more value in the attacking third.
