    Braga to book their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League

    On Thursday evening, Midtjylland host Sporting Braga at the MCH Arena, in gameweek five of Group F of the Europa League.

    Midtjylland are currently top of the Danish Superliga but have not fared as well in the Europa League. The home team has taken five points from their opening four matches in Group F of the competition.

    Despite their mixed results so far in the competition, a win could put them just a point behind the hosts who are leading the standings.

    However, a defeat could well see the Danish team eliminated from the competition, depending on what happens elsewhere.

    Midtjylland have a poor recent record in the Europa League, winning just one of their last eight matches in the competition.

    In fact, a 1-0 win at Red Star Belgrade last time out ended a run of seven matches without a victory in the Europa League.

    The Danish team are winless in four home matches in European football’s secondary competition, having also won just one of their previous six home matches.

    Sporting Braga are in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages and top the group. The Portuguese visitors are two points clear of second-place Red Star Belgrade and four clear of the third-place home team. A draw would be enough to seal their spot in the last-32 of the Europa League.

    Braga overcame a 2-1 defeat at Red Star Belgrade on gameweek one to record three straight victories in the Europa League.

    The visitor’s recent outings in the competition have been high-scoring affairs, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five matches.

    Forebet predicts that Sporting Braga will secure their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League with a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
