Braga face Leicester in the Europa League on Thursday. A win would see Leicester book their place in the knockout stages, while a draw could also see them progress if results go in their favour.

Braga Form


Braga have been in excellent form in recent weeks. The only disappointing result during their recent run was the 4-0 thrashing suffered by Leicester last time out in Europe.

Braga have won an impressive eight of their last nine matches in all competitions coming into Thursday’s match.

Carlos Carvalhal’s team picked up an impressive 3-2 win against Benfica in their previous league outing before beating Trofense last time out.

Abel Ruiz and Galeno both got on the scoresheet, with the latter scoring a dramatic 90th minute winner in the 2-1 victory.

Braga Team News


Braga will be without Fransgerio, Ricardo Horta and Rui Fonte for this Europa League match.

Leicester Form


Like their opponents, Leicester have been in great form of late despite losing their last match in the Premier League.

The Foxes have won five of their last six matches, including three wins in the Europa League. 

That leaves them top of the group and on the verge of qualifying with two games to spare. Leicester went into the international break off of impressive wins against Leeds, Braga and Wolves.

Last time out, Leicester lost 3-0 away to Liverpool in the Premier League, leaving them 4th in the table.

Leicester Team News


Leicester will once again be without Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, Timothy Castagne, Daniel Amartey and Wilfred Ndidi through injury.
