Braga to avoid defeat to progress
Although Rangers won their last match by a comfortable 4:0 score line, they haven't been very consistent recently; the Gers have three losses in their last five games, including the reverse fixture of this encounter. It's fair to point out that Rangers could not register a shot on target in the first leg; they'll be going up against a Braga side that has no losses in their last five games. As a matter of fact, Braga have won four games in a row; they've lost just once in their last 11 games across all competitions. Considering the form of both teams, we don't think Braga will lose today.
Both teams will score
Despite Rangers' recent shortcomings, it hasn't been easy to shut them out; the Gers found the back of the net in 15 of their last 16 games. In fact, Rangers scored more than two goals per game on average in that 16 game stretch. Just like Rangers, Braga have been consistent in goal scoring terms; they scored in their last five, and seven of their last eight games. Both teams scored in three of Rangers' last five, and in three of Braga's last five games; considering these teams have scored goals consistently, we believe that there will be goals at both ends.
