Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolverhampton has been known for their strong form against the big names in the tournaments. They have fared well against the bigger clubs in Premier League and ended up at the 7th place in the last season of the Premier League. The Wolves will be hosting their opening match having tasted defeat in the previous home game against Chelsea with a massive 2-5 lead in the end.
Sporting Braga had a decent last season run with getting the fourth position in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. The Archbishops were defeated in their previous trip on the road against Setubal in a narrow 1-0 score on the board. They are a strong contingent from the Portuguese league and will surely give a challenge for the wolves.

Wolves vs Braga Prediction
The massive defeat against Chelsea is the only defeat they encountered in the last ten home games. They had an undefeated seventeen game run in the home matches until the last home game.
Wolves have scored an average of 1.7 goals per match from their last ten home matches. They even managed to keep five clean sheets in the same period. Meanwhile, Braga has scored an average of 1.3 goals per match from their last ten away fixtures. Despite the result, the visitors have shaken the opposition nets in seven of the previous ten trips on road.
The home team is well known to surprise bigger clubs with their cunning attack in the play. They do have the home advantage and will be settling for nothing less than a win to make a comeback to their fans after the last defeat here. Moreover, Wolves have more experience from facing big names unlike Braga coming from an inferior league.
As such, it will be more likely the host that will have the final say in the game in which we can surely expect a couple of goals.
