Leicester City vs Braga, UEFA Europa League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Two unbeaten sides in Group G, Leicester City, and Braga are going head to head in a Europa League encounter on Thursday.

Match Timings: Nov 06, 1:30 AM  

Team Preview 

Group G’s table is pretty competitive as Leicester City and Braga both made a perfect start to their UEFA campaign. Both sides are six points ahead of their group opponents Zorya Luhansk and AEK Athens. They would face at the King Power Stadium to top the group and step closer to the knockout stage. The goal difference might play a crucial role later in the second leg matches if they play a draw on Thursday. 

Leicester started off their Europa League campaign with a 3-0 win at home against Zorya Luhansk, followed by a clinical 2-1 victory in Athens. Brendan Rodgers's side is in excellent form and sitting at the second spot in Premier League, within a point of leaders Liverpool. Youri Tielemans scored a brace to edge past Leeds United by 4-1 on Monday. 

Meanwhile, Braga has a 6-matches unbeaten run in all competitions. Their most recent victory was recorded over Famalicao through Bruno Viana's late winner. They moved to third in the Primeira Liga, just four points behind the leader Sporting Lisbon. After making it into the final of 2011, the Portuguese Club failed to advance past the knockout stage. 

Leicester haven’t lost a home game in European competition since 1997’s defeat to Atletico Madrid. The English Club has won five of their previous six matches at home in European competition.
