PREVIEW & PREDICTION – Braga vs Marseille 22/02/2018

In the second leg of the Europa League 16 th, on Thursday, starting at 20:05, the Braga – Marseille will be played. Hosts only retain the theoretical chances of qualifying after the outcome of the tour.

“The Archbishops” quickly passed over the defeat suffered in France and were forced on the weekend, on the move from Guimaraes. Help with the fact that they have evolved with an extra man in the 30th minute, unleashed and ultimately imposed a score of 5-0. It was the most categorical victory this year. With this victory, Braga strengthened its fourth position in the standings, a position that most likely will end the season. Returning to the Europa League, he now has an almost impossible mission. Especially because in the 5 matches played so far, in qualifying and groups, the defensive gave up every time.

On the other hand, the guests won a new victory in the last round of the championship, when they put themselves in front of Bordeaux, score 1-0. The only goal of the game was scored by Thauvin in the 35th minute. Thus, the 25-year-old striker scored for the 15th time, confirming the good time he is crossing. With this success, OM continues to fight Monaco for the second place, which breaks one point. At the shelter of the tournament outcome, the French can close the game as it did in previous league tours. Both Salzburg, Guimaraes and Konyaspor scored no more than two goals

Braga (4-4-2): Matheus – Figueiras Viana Silva Sequeira – Esgaio Danilo Vukcevic Teixeira – Paulinho Hassan

Marseille (4-2-3-1): Pele – Sarr Abdennour Rolando Amavi – Lopez Gustavo – N’Jie Sanson Ocampos – Germain

In the tour, Marseille won 3-0. Germain (double) and Thauvin scored decisively in an authoritatively dominated game by the French. It was the second success achieved in the three direct confrontations registered so far.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.70
