The Russian side need to overcome a 1-0 deficit if they are to make it into the group stages of the Europa League for the 2019/20 season, but they are in good form domestically and they beat Thun in both legs of their last qualifying match. Both teams scored in both of those legs and Spartak have also seen both teams score in each of their last three Russian Premier League matches as well.
They’re still unbeaten at home this season and have only failed to win one of those games, against rivals Dinamo Moscow.
Braga picked up a good 1-0 win in the first leg to put them in a good position going into this second leg, however, they know their lead is a precarious one and face a tricky test away in Moscow. Manager Ricardo Sa Pinto will be looking for an away goal to take some of the pressure off the tie and given that Braga have scored in all of their matches this season, they should be confident of getting on the scoresheet.
For our Spartak Moscow vs Braga predictions, we’re starting off with a bet on the correct score and going for a 1-1 draw. Braga will be keen to get an away goal and that might be enough to see them through to the group stages, as long as they can keep Spartak Moscow out at the other end. There is every chance that both teams will get on the scoresheet here to keep up the goalscoring theme between the teams, so both teams to score will be the second betting tip for the clash. The odds for this are a bit short so it could be the best option to put this match in your BTTS accumulator this week.
