Match Preview

Falling to defeat after conceding injury-time goals in both of their Europa League (UEL) group stage games so far, Beşiktaş need to turn around a run of poor form across their last eight competitive games (W1, D3, L4), but have never won a European home match against Portuguese opponents in six previous attempts (D3, L3).
Furthermore, two clean sheets in their last nine competitive home fixtures doesn’t inspire confidence, neither does a run of three straight UEL home defeats, two seeing the Turks fail to find the net. Still, with five of Beşiktaş’ last six home victories in this competition featuring over 2.5 goals, a home win could produce an entertaining game.
On a seven-game unbeaten run (W5, D2 – in all competitions), expect a confident Sporting Braga side, even if the last four of those matches saw both teams score. A side that likes to attack, Braga’s last 19 competitive draws have seen both teams score, with March 2017 being the last time Braga played out a goalless match – something they’ve not done in their previous 32 UEL fixtures.
The visitors have a habit of starting games quickly, and have been winning ‘to nil’ at half-time in their last three away games (in all competitions). In fact, they’ve scored before the break in three of their last four UEL away victories.
Players to watch: Burak Yılmaz has been Beşiktaş’ first goalscorer in the last three games he’s found the net.
Paulinho scored Braga’s winner in their previous league match – his side are unbeaten in the last 20 competitive games he’s scored in (W17, D3).
Stat attack: Four of Beşiktaş’ last five games have been goalless at half-time.
Both teams have scored in ten of Braga’s previous 12 UEL away games.
Each of Braga’s last four fixtures have witnessed over 1.5 first-half goals.
