Roma vs Braga Prediction & Match Preview

Roma vs Sporting Braga
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.

La Lupa are one of the best teams in the Italian top flight, and are currently fighting to place themselves in the top-most tier there. As of now, they are in possession of the fourth spot, and are trailing defending champions Juventus by just one point.

They are in good form lately, and are scoring goals in huge numbers. On top of that they are also at home, where they have been an even more dominant force this season.

Moreover, they are pitted against a team from the Portuguese Primeira Liga, which is considered to be heavily inferior to their Italian counterparts.

Meanwhile, the Archbishops are struggling at the moment to show some consistency, and especially on the road they have been on a dismal run for quite some time.

Likely, expect the in-form Roma to secure a win this Thursday.

Roma vs Braga: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse match-up had ended in a 0-2 win for the Italians. This happens to be the sole game between the squads so far.
  • Paulo Fonseca’s men were unbeaten in 17 of their past 22 overall encounters against other Portuguese rivals.
  • Carlos Carvalhal’s men were winless in five of their preceding eight Serie A opponents.

Roma vs Braga Prediction

Fonseca’s men had won the first leg 0-2 on the road. Thus, they already lead in aggregate scoreline, and they have two away goals to their name as well.

Now, the Archbishops will have to score at least twice to have any shot at not getting eliminated, and their form lately is not that impressive.

In fact, they were winless in three of their last five overall games, and had lost three of their former five road trips.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 20 of their past 21 home appearances, and had scored three or more goals in eight of their past twelve home games.

Considering these stats, expect Roma to secure an easy win this Thursday.
