In the Otkrytiye Arena Spartak Moscow wants to turn the tables against Braga after a 0-1 defeat in the first leg. In the match last week, the Portuguese defended his own defense for a long time, but after 74 minutes the only goal of the match was in favor of Sporting.
The task is therefore clear: Only with a separate hit at least the extension can be achieved. But only if your own box is kept clean this time.
Soccer Betting Prediction Spartak Moscow vs Braga
However, the guests arrive with a solid offensive that has always struck in their six competitive matches in the Europa League against Bröndby IF and in the local Primera Liga. Nevertheless, the Spartak Moscow against Braga tip is that at least in the first half of the match no goal.
The Arcebispos will confine themselves above all to the proper execution of the defensive work. For his part, Myaso will not start too offensively, as a goal would triple the goal of a hit without further ado. The Spartak Moscow vs Braga prediction is alluded to with three units as an insert.
Spartak Moscow – Statistics & Current Form
The ten-time titleholder made a moderate start in the Premier League. A lucky win against the low-skilled kickers from Sochi, followed by a draw in Rostov and an embarrassing defeat in Tambov, was anything but a good start for the 2017 champion.
The last time things went uphill: After a draw in the derby against Dynamo three wins were taken in a row in the top Russian league. However, the results against the likes of Akhmat Grozny and Krylja Sowjetow Samara have to be put into perspective – both clubs are currently only in the table cellar.
Furthermore, the victory in the further city duel with CSKA should also not be overstated because the opponent has seen better days. Nevertheless, Narodnaya are now in second place in the table, but the distances are of course still very narrow after only seven rounds of play.
A real offensive team is Spartak also still not and with Ze Luis was in the transfer summer, the best scorer of the past season to FC Porto sold. His gap should now mainly fill the two newcomers Andre Schürrle, borrowed by Borussia Dortmund and the Argentine striker Ezequil Ponce (AS Roma).
The latter attacker kicked last year not with the Romans, but on loan for AEK Athens in the Greek Super League. Here, Ponce was quite successful and finished second in the scorer rating.
The South American has yet to adapt to the Russian situation: After a red card in the derby against Dynamo, he has missed the last three league games and scored in his previous four inserts no hit. Things went better in the Europa League, where Ponce netted in both matches in the previous round against FC Thun.
Also at league level, the German world champion Andre Schürrle has already acclimatized. A goal against Grozny and already two assists in four inserts represent a promising debut. In addition, he succeeded in his return after about two years in the Europa League also a goal against the aforementioned FC Thun.
Expected formation of Spartak Moscow:
➲ Maksimenko – Gigot – Dzikiya – Rasskazov – Ayrton – Mirzov – Umyarov – Til – Zobnin – Larsson – Schürrle

Braga – Statistics & Current Form
At the start of the second half in the last league game at Gil Vicente, Braga was suddenly in the dark. The reason was a failure of the floodlights in the Estádio Cidade de Barcelos. After having found the light switch again at the Gilistas, the game could be played regularly.
For Sporting she brought a 1-1. Not a bad result in the court-ridden resurrected club from Barcelos, who had conquered the runner-up from Porto in his previous home game.
The situation in the standing fourth in Portuguese football – as many times the position was taken in the review of the last five seasons in the top Portuguese league – is otherwise not as dark as the interim light conditions last Sunday night.
In addition to a opening victory against Moreirense so far only the previous guest appearance at Sporting has ended as a loser. An unfortunate defeat: The Arsenalistas were at least equal to the third of the Vorsaion and had actually earned a point. Given the departures in the summer, the previous performances are worth all honors.
After all, the team of coach Ricardo Sa Pinto, for example, lost Dyego Sousa to Shenzen FC from the Super League in China. The nearly 30-year-old was in the previous season still the best goalgetter side of the Braguistas. On the other hand, the financial resources for high-performance access are traditionally only comparatively limited at Sporting.
Before the return match, the Spartak Moscow against Braga odds but in view of the first leg result quite clearly on a Portuguese entry into the group stage.
Expected formation of Braga:
➲ Eduardo – Tormena – Viana – Ferrugem – Caju – Galeno – Murilo – Novais – Claudemir – Fonte – Hassan

Spartak Moscow vs Braga Soccer Betting Tips Explained
The first leg was not a footballing treat from an objective point of view. Coach Oleg Kononov’s team defended efficiently until the goal, but they did not do much for Braga’s grass-roots culture. The home side, however, remained after the heavy league match at Sporting much guilty. For the upcoming match a similar gameplay is expected.
Although Spartak must score a goal, but the result from the first leg represents the permanent danger that in another goal of the Portuguese due to the away goals rule already three own goal scores would be needed.
For this reason, Spartak will play from a very controlled defensive and probably only with increasing game progress the attack efforts. The 2011 Europa League finalist may again be in for a counter-attack and will otherwise limit itself to defending the lead.
Key Facts – Spartak Moscow vs Braga tips
📌 The first leg ended with a 1-0 win from Braga
📌 Spartak has recently won three times in the Premjer League and takes second place

In view of this starting point in the duel between Spartak Moscow and Braga, the tip aims for a goalless draw at least at half time. The game is very important for both clubs from a financial point of view, as their entry into the group stage would bring additional revenue.
Since both the Muscovites and the Arsenalistas are not necessarily bedded in roses from an economic point of view, the significance of the game is reinforced once again.
