In the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, Braga and Roma meet at the Round of 32 stage at the Estadio Municipal in Portugal. The 2nd leg will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome a week later. The Serie A side are the favourites to go through, but the hosts are not an easy nut to crack on home soil. This 1st leg Round of 32 tie promises to be an intriguing game. Check out the latest betting odds in our preview.

Braga Preview – Can the hosts make home advantage count?

Braga – who are managed by former Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal these days – are in good form. The Archbishops are in third place in the Primeira Liga, winning 13 of 19 games. Since a 2-0 loss at Pacos Ferreira in mid-January, Braga have taken 13 points from a possible 15.

The Portuguese outfit had a good Europa League group campaign, winning four of six matches. On their way to the last 32, Braga beat both AEK Athens and Zorya Luhansk twice, and picked up one point from their two games with Premier League side Leicester City.

Our betting prediction:
Roma to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1015 GMT, Wednesday 17 February)

Braga have been superb at the Estadio Municipal this season. Since losing their opening home match, the Minho Warriors have gone on to win ten and draw three of 13 on home soil. Can they shock Roma on Thursday?

Roma Preview – Will the Italian giants return to Rome with a win?

Paulo Fonseca’s Roma are in third spot in Serie A behind Inter Milan and AC Milan at present, picking up 13 wins from 22 league fixtures. Overall, the club from the Italian capital have won 13 times, drawn four games and suffered five defeats.

Like Braga, Roma also won four of six Europa League group games. Four wins and a draw from their opening five put them safely through before a matchday six defeat at CSKA Sofia. Along the way, Roma netted 13 Europa League goals.

Jordan Veretout has been in good goalscoring form this season, helping himself to ten goals in all competitions. One of those came in the 2-0 Europa League win against Cluj back in November. Back the Frenchman to notch anytime in this one at 21/10.
