Sporting Braga vs. Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Leicester hopes to make it four wins in their European league matches in a row for their first time in their history. The side travels to Braga this Thursday at the Braga Municipal with a kickoff at 8:55 pm.

On the other hand, Braga will be hosting their ninth different England side in a competition and are looking to move level on points with the Foxes at the top of Group G.

Leicester’s incredible run of six wins in six matches across all competitions came to an end during their 3-0 loss to Liverpool. Despite their first away loss in their campaign, the Foxes remain in the top four slots with two points behind Tottenham’s title leaders after their first nine campaign matches.

Brendan Rodgers looks set to shift his focus on the Europa League with a win guaranteeing the side a spot in the knockout stages. In November, the Foxes easily cruised past Braga in a 4-0 thrashing, marking their biggest European win. A win this Thursday would confirm their qualification from the group.

The only away game for the Foxes dates back to 2016 against Portuguese opposition where they lost 5-0 to Porto in the Champions League. The Foxes are currently six points clear off Braga with nine points.

Since their 4-0 loss, Braga has been on an incredible run with seven wins from their last eight matches across all competitions.

We expect Coach Carlos Cavarlhal to go with a 4-5-1 formation instead of their three at the back used against the Foxes last month. Central defender David Carmo remains suspended ahead of the clash, paving the way for Raul Silva alongside Bruno Viana.

Brendan Rodger might give some minutes to Wilfried Ndidi, Timothy Castagne, and Ricardo Perreira, who are close to making full recoveries. Kelechi Iheanacho looks ready to lead the attack line while Vardy is given the rest.
