Basaksehir vs Braga by Escopablobar
Europa league action tonight with the last games of the group stage being played.
Basaksehir did not have a lot of chances to qualify before the last round against Ludogorets away but they managed to pick up a 2:1 win against the bulgarians and are now back in the hunt for a place in the next stage of the competition. Unfortunately for them all is not in their hands as if Ludogorets picks up a point away at Hoffenheim then the turkish side will not qualify even if they win this match.
Home side has been impressive this season as they are leading the Turkish league domestically and that is a great result if you take into consideration what other teams are competing against them - Besiktas, Fenerbache and Galatasaray.
Braga have already qualified for the next stage here and have basically nothing to play for. They can finish 2nd in the group if Ludogorets wins and they lose here but I don't really think this will be a huge deal for them. Also, it seems as if they have a lot of question marks over many players, some small injuries here and there.
Braga is a strong Portuguese team and in normal circumstances I would not bet against them in this match. But motivation is key here. Home side will try to win this one and see where it can take them while Braga may have some rotation in the squad and you can question their motive. I see a low scoring match here with a narrow win for the home side, possibly 1:0. Good luck!
