Braga vs Rangers: Rematches in Europa League are starting
Braga vs Rangers: Match preview
We watched a great first match in Glasgow. The Portuguese had a 2-0 lead, but even that was not enough to avoid defeat on a rainy Glasgow night. In just fifteen minutes, the Rangers scored three goals and brought some advantage to the south.
In a match against Benfica, Braga showed how dirty a team can be when needed and when they play on the score. Rangers is a team that adapts to the opponent and can play correct games. This usually can be seen through the in wins the championship. But, they can also play games with more cards, like in the Old Firm.
This is a match of great importance for both teams, who are eagerly wishing for a further phase of the competition and a lot of nervousness is expected in the tense finish.
The match is being judged by 35-year-old Andreas Ekberg from Sweden, a referee who does not have too much experience in international competitions and for whom this match is a huge accolade but also a lot of evidence to prove.
We expect an interesting match in which Braga is a slight favorite for us as they are catching the backlog from the first game. We believe in an active result until the finish of the match.
As for the absences in this match, Braga could be without four players who are in doubt. Namely, Eduardo, Sequeira, Tormena and Wallace are under question mark, however, Squeira should be in the first line-up. For the Rangers, on the other hand, they will play without Defoe, Helander and Morelos, while Barisic is in doubt, but he should play.
Braga: Matheus; Wilson, Viana, Silva; Esgaio, Palhinha, Fransergio, Sequeira; Trincao, Paulinho, Horta.
Rangers: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic; Jack, Davis, Arfield; The Hague, Cambery, Aribo.
It is hard to predict anything in this match. Although there were five goals in the first match, we don’t believe this will happen again. We believe that Braga’s goal is to score a goal and to secure their own net. That is why according to us there won’t be more than two goals.
