Although they were in good shape before going to Braga Spartak was defeated. Before that they won Akhmat away in the Russian championship by 3-1 and they CSKA at home in the Main Moscow derby by 2-1. Spartak players scored with ease and they hoped to continue series of positive results in Portugal but they didn’t. Instead, they continued series of receiving by one goal and that continued last weekend in Samara. They conceded the first goal in the finish of the first half and they turned the result up-side down in the second. Til scored the winner for the final 2-1 in the injury time. The team underwent several changes, which we expect now.
Probable lineups Spartak Moscow: Maksimenko – Eshchenko, Gigot, Jikia, A. Lucas – Zobnin, Guliev – Z. Bakaev, Schurrle, Til – Ponce
After two victories over Bronby, Braga has continued the positive series and won Spartak in the 1st play-off leg but it is to be seen will those 1-0 be enough to reach the group phase. They didn’t easily win and only near the end of match R. Horta scored the winner. Still, it is important they didn’t receive a goal at home and they have advantage now. Braga started the Portuguese championship with a victory but then it lost the derby to Sporting in Lisbon 2-1, while in the previous round it drew for the first time. They had a lead in away match with Gil Vicente and the match ended as 1-1 draw, but on the pitch was pretty much Braga’s reserve team.
Probable lineups SC Braga: Matheus – Esgaio, B. Viana, P. Santos, Sequeira – Palhinha, Fransergio, A. Horta, W. Eduardo, R. Horta – Paulinho
Betting Pick: Spartak Moscow vs SC Braga
Braga has advantage but now Spartak has role of the favourite to win. Perhaps they won’t manage to pass the round, however, we expect to dominate and make a victory, even a Pyrrhic one.
