Braga vs Sion by Marinos
In the first leg Braga escaped from Switzerland with a victory 1-2 in a game that the hosts played attacking football and Braga should be expecting nothing less at the Estadio Municipal de Braga.
Braga is doing great so far this season as they are after all 4 targets (first 4 in domestic league,league cup,Portuguese cup and Europa League ,13-3-1/AT HOME ) and at the moment they run a streak of 11 games unbeaten (8-3-0) in all competitions.
Braga have won all three of their European home matches this season – all by a one-goal margin.
Braga coach Paulo Fonseca said :``After the result achieved in Switzerland we want to confirm (our progress) into the next phase. Although some people give us favouritism, I think otherwise.
``Sion is not an easy team. It is true that we are confident and we can move this round, but we are sceptical of the value of Sion.
``We must, therefore, be prepared for a very tough game. They will be pressing a lot because they have nothing to lose.''
Vukčević should be the only one absentee for Braga /cards.
Sion leaves behind the loss at Zurich from Grasshopper (3-0) as everybody is focusing in tonight's game.
They are 6-4-8 in all competitions and in their last 7 away games they are (1-1-5)
Sion are playing in the spring phase of a UEFA competition for the first time since 1986/87
Didier Tholot stated for the game :``We will have a 30 per cent chance of passing, but we will give 100 per cent to make it happen.
``We will not leave here with regrets. There are 90 minutes to play and we will play them.
``Braga are very strong and fit, but (it has) happened that teams have been overcome like that. We'll do everything to win the game tomorrow.''
Sion will not have the help of defender Reto Ziegler due to an Achilles injury,Léo Lacroix,Zverotić and Xavier Kouassi.
It should be a fast game and i expect both teams to score at least one goal each.
