Slovan Bratislava vs Braga – Prediction (Europa League – 12.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Despite failing to progress from the UEFA Europa League (UEL) group stage for a third time running, ŠK Slovan Bratislava can deny visiting Braga top spot if they can convert an unbeaten Fortuna Liga run at home (W8, D1) into their second home victory of this UEL group stage campaign. Slovan have failed to keep a clean sheet throughout the group stage, resulting in some high-scoring affairs: both teams have found the back of the net in four of their five matches, with those four all seeing three or more goals scored. Despite not conceding in the opening 15 minutes this group stage campaign, Slovan’s recent loss at Beşiktaş means they have gone on to lose on both occasions that they have led at half-time.

Braga have opened the scoring in all five of their group stage matches (before half-time in four), but have then dropped points on two occasions (albeit both at home) in spite of a +4 goal difference (overall) after the 61st minute. The Portuguese outfit remain unbeaten against Slovakian opposition (W2, D1), but more importantly maintain an undefeated record across their last five UEL away fixtures (W4, D1).

Players to watch: Andraž Šporar remains Slovan’s greatest threat, scoring in his last five club starts at home. Scorer in the previous H2H, Wenderson Galeno has chipped in with goals or assists in four of his last five starts for Braga.

Stat attack: Slovan have not won the ‘race to five corners’ in any of their group stage matches. Both teams have collected a relatively high 2.80 yellow cards per group stage game, with ten of Braga’s 14 yellow cards coming in their two away games. Braga have a domestic record of: W3, D1, L3 as an away favourite this season (inc. cups).
