Midtjylland vs Sporting Braga Europa League Prediction by Leaguelane

Midtjylland vs Sporting Braga
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 November 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: MCH Arena.

Braga are at the top of the Group F table, and with a two-point lead they seem well-set to become the group champions. However, the job is not done yet, and they cannot be too confident.

The second-placed Red Star Belgrade are giving them a good chase, and are taking on the dead-last placed Ludogorets. This forces Braga to go after the three points this Thursday, if they need to avoid any last-minute drama.

Considering they are taking on the struggling Midtjylland, whom they had beaten soundly in the reverse match-up, expect another win for the team at the MCH Arena.
