Sheriff victory or draw

Sporting Braga have not done so well in away matches. Apart from the win over strugglers Arouca, the away performances from the team have not been convincing. Sheriff might have been knocked out of the Champions League but the team did get some brilliant results against Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk at home. It would be wrong to not back Sheriff to pick up something from the game with home support behind them and Braga being mediocre on the road.

Total goals under 2.5

The priority for Braga will be to avoid the defensive mistakes that they have been committing in recent weeks. The team has been involved in games with 2.5 goals in three out of the last four games. However, Sheriff will try to make life difficult for the visitors and this game could be a tight affair.

Both teams to score – yes

Sheriff have not kept a clean sheet in five consecutive European games. Even though the team do work hard, the quality of the opposition is likely to shine through. Braga have players like Ricardo Horta in good form to expect goals.
