Braga v Hoffenheim Team News

With the group so far somewhat surprisingly being dominated by Ludogorets, Hoffenheim have their necks on the line here with just 4 points (3 behind Braga in 2nd), knowing that they must probably match Braga’s 2-1 win from the reverse fixture to have a reasonable chance of progressing. In the case of a draw, Braga will know that another draw on the final day of the group stage against bottom-placed Basaksehir will see them through.

Hoffenheim are no doubt disappointed in their performance in the EL so far, with 4 points from 4 matches in what on paper looked like a manageable group. Their slump has so far coincided with a drop in domestic form, where they have failed to build on their bright start (W4 D2), and only have 1 win in the last 6 (D3 L2). Still only 3 points away from second place, they might be wondering what might have been.

Braga, on the other hand, find themselves in familiar territory in their league. They currently reside in 4th place, behind Portugal’s “big three” (Porto, Benfica, Sporting). Winless in 3 in all competitions, they are nonetheless in overall good form (6W 1D) in the league. Normally a strong side at home (W32 D11 L8), they are sure to pose problems for the Germans here.

All matches involving these sides (including their qualifiers) have seen over 1.5 goals so far. Hoffenheim have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 out of 6 matches in Europe so far, Braga in 4 out of 8.

Conclusion and Match Preview:

Scared of the gong? 5 out of Hoffenheim's 6 conceded goals in the EL group stage have come within 5 minutes of the whistle either side of half time or at the final whistle. In their last fixture, however, they were the ones to score in injury time, rescuing a point at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, something coach Nagelsmann was keen to emphasize: "We have been known to give away points in the final moments - today it was the other way around!".
