Bitesize Prediction: Braga vs Fiorentina – 16/02/23

Competition: Europa Conference League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Two sides who will be looking to gain an early Conference League advantage on Thursday evening, Braga will welcome Fiorentina to the Estadio Municipal de Braga.

Starting with the hosts, while Braga might have been left stunned by their 5-0 drumming away at Sporting Lisbon when opening February, Artur Jorge’s side have proven that was nothing more than a minor blip. Knowing how crucial it could be in claiming an early advantage on Thursday evening, the Portuguese outfit are enjoying an eye-catching flurry. Last seen over the weekend picking up some perfect momentum as they picked up a 2-1 win away at Maritimo, the Archbishops have now won eight of their previous nine matchups across all formats. With that run stemming all the way back to December 19th, Braga have also gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. It should be highlighted, the midweek hosts have seen three of their last four contests on home soil finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Fiorentina might have marked their return from the World Cup break in the midst of an impressive run, the Italian giants have come crashing back down to earth. Despite claiming a much-needed 2-1 win at home against Torino when opening February, that is the only victory that Vincenzo Italiano’s side have claimed from their last six domestic matchups across all formats. With their recent wobble highlighted by a shock 2-1 loss at home against Bologna earlier in the month, the Viola could face a tricky test when they open their Conference League adventure on Thursday evening. Showing some extended issues at the back, it should also be noted that Fiorentina have failed to muster a single clean sheet over the past month. In a contest that could see chances at both ends of the pitch, we’re backing an enjoyable affair here.
