    On Wednesday night, Sporting Braga and Union Berlin clash at the Estadio Municipal de Braga as the two teams clash in Group C of the Champions League.

    Sporting Braga

    The Portuguese outfit still has a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages from Group C.

    However, they would need to win both their remaining group games, and second-place Napoli would need to slip up for Braga to qualify for the last-16.

    A trip to Naples on gameweek six will leave their qualification hopes in their own hands if they win this game.

    A victory in this clash would mean that Sporting would at least drop down into the Europa League in the new year.

    Sporting have struggled to pick up results in Group C, with their only points coming against Union in a 3-2 victory in the German capital in gameweek two.

    They have lost their other three games in the group, conceding at least two goals in each defeat.

    Union Berlin

    This season has turned into a nightmare for the boys from Berlin. They are in 17th place in the Bundesliga table and bottom of the Group C standings.

    A 1-1 home draw with Augsburg at the weekend made it 15 games without a victory in all competitions for Union.

    The poor run includes failing to win any of their four games in the Champions League.

    At least a draw at Napoli last time out ended a three-game losing streak in European football’s elite competition.

    Realistically, the best Union can hope for is finishing in third place, as they would have to win this game and beat Real Madrid in the final game, and hope there is a massive turnaround in goal difference to second place Napoli to have a chance of making the last-16.

    What does Forebet predict?

    Forebet predicts that Sporting Braga will record a comfortable victory in a high-scoring encounter to book at least a place in the Europa League in the new year.
