Braga vs Qarabag Prediction and Betting Tips | February 15th 2024


The action resumes in the Europa League as Braga and Qarabag go head-to-head at the Estadio Braga Municipal in the playoff round on Thursday.

Having suffered a Champions League group-stage exit, Artur Jorge’s Braga will be looking to kick off their Europa League campaign with a win.

However, Braga were condemned to their heaviest defeat of the season as they suffered a 5-0 loss against Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese Primeira Liga on Saturday.

Prior to that, Jorge’s side were on a five-game unbeaten run across all competitions, claiming four wins and one draw since mid-January.

Braga endured an underwhelming Champions League campaign as they picked up just four points from six matches to finish third in Group C, but will look to begin their Europa League campaign on a positive note.

Qarabag, on the other hand, seured three wins, one draw and lost two of their six Europa League games to collect 10 points and finish second in Group H.

Gurban Gurbanov’s men maintained their 16-point lead at the top of the Azerbaijan Premier League table with a pulsating 3-3 draw against Sabah last Sunday.

Qarabag will be backing themselves to return to winning ways on Thursday as they have won their last five games on the road since the start of December.

Braga vs Qarabag Prediction

Still licking their wounds from their humiliating defeat to Sporting, Braga will head into Thursday’s game looking to pick up a morale-boosting result.
