Our match prediction:
Estadio Municipal de Braga will host Thursday’s Europa League game between Braga and Shakhtar Donetsk. The Portuguese outfit have eliminated the likes of Sion and Fenerbahce on their way to the quarter-finals of the European competition and it has to be noted that they have been impressive at home ground this season. Paulo Fonseca’s men scored 2+ goals in each of their previous four home games in the process and we predict that the hosts will extend their goal-scoring run in Wednesday’s football match. Shakhtar Donetsk, on the other hand, head into the game following an 8-1 win over Metalist and taking into account that Mircea Lucescu’s men outclassed the likes of Anderlecht and Schalke 04, there is every chance the Miners will find the net in the Estadio Municipal de Braga clash. In previous two meetings between the two teams in the EL five goals in total were netted.
