Napoli vs Braga prediction

Napoli vs Braga team news

Napoli

Although they enter this crucial game in the Champions League after struggling recently and losing four of their last five games across the board, Napoli can get to the knockout stages even with a draw, which should make things easier for them, especially since they've already beaten Braga once, in Portugal.

Meanwhile, Mathias Olivera, Mario Rui, and Jens Cajuste are on the sidelines with injuries at this time.

Napoli predicted lineup:  Meret – Di Lorenzo, Ostigard, Jesus, Natan – Lobotka, Zielinski, Anguissa – Politano, Kvartskhelia, Osimhen

Braga

After some of the early struggles at the start of the season, Braga have done very well recently, especially in Portuguese Primeira Liga where they have won seven of their last eight matches. Meanwhile, they also still have a chance to reach the next stage in the Champions League, but they would have to beat Napoli to achieve this.

Another positive for Braga at the moment is the clear bill of health, but the team will be without suspended Sikou Niakate in this game.

Braga predicted lineup: Matheus – Gomez, Fonte, Oliveira, Borja – Carvalho, Moutinho – Djalo, Horta, Zalazar – Banza

Player to watch: Victor Osimhen (Napoli)

The Nigerian striker has often been injured this season, so he only appeared in three games in the Champions League, in which he failed to score. Still, he is the team's best scorer without a doubt, and this seems like a perfect game for Osimhen to score his first goal of the season in the Champions League.

Player to Watch: Álvaro Djaló (Braga)

Álvaro Djaló has been a menacing presence on the right wing for Braga this season and the 24-year-old wide attacker has already chipped in with an impressive seven goal contributions in 15 starts in all competitions since the summer.

Djaló was born in Madrid but raised in the famous hotbed of footballing talent in the Basque region before joining Braga in Portugal in 2017. The crafty technician has been averaging 1.8 dribbles and 1.8 shots in the Champions League this term, and he could threaten the Napoli defence this evening. Djaló managed to score in two of Braga’s last three group matches.
