Preview

Groningen and Sporting Braga face at Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis Groningen

The home team is currently in the 4th position, with 1 point won, after 1 draw and 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost a home match against Slovan Liberec by (0‑1). In the last round, they have lost an away match against Olympique Marseille by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 9 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 18 conceded. They come to this match after a away draw against Roda JC by (0‑0). Groningen has won 7 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches.

They haven’t won any of the last 5 matches for this competition. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 5 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 25 of the last 28 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 11 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Groningen is already eliminated of the competition and is just playing his part in the last match, anyway they should not stop trying to win this final match. We expect that the manager Erwin van de Looi plays in his usual 4-3-3 formation which tries to explore the flanks to make crosses into the striker and captain of the team, Michael De Leew. Lindgren and Dino Islamovic are injured and won't play this match.


Confirmed Lineup: Sergio Padt, Hans Hateboer, A. Tamata, J. Kappelhof, E. Reijnen, Kasper Larsen, Simon Tibbling, H. Maduro, Albert Rusnák, D. Hoesen, Bryan Linssen.

Analysis Braga

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 12 points won, after 4 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Olympique Marseille by (1‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Slovan Liberec by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 9 goals scored and 10 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Primeira Liga, they got an away tie against Moreirense by (0‑0). In the last 10 away matches Sporting Braga has won 5, tied 2 and lost 3. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 15 of the last 29 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 21 out of 29 have ended with Under 2,5 goals.

Braga comes to this match after two league matches without a victory, so they should try to stop this bad moment and would certainly play offensively. Anyway, they are already qualified and only need a draw to secure the first place of the group. The manager Paulo Fonseca should use his normal formation but he won't be able to use Ricardo Ferreira who is suspended.



Confirmed Lineup: Matheus, Baiano, Marcelo Goiano, André Pinto, Willy Boly, Luiz Carlos, Nikola Vukčević, Rafa Silva, Alan, Koka, Wilson Eduardo.
