Braga vs Napoli Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Braga vs Napoli will be an incredible game between two highly motivated teams. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
This is the best market you can pick for this game. Napoli have not been doing great in the new season and their defense is far weaker than it was last season. They will be conceding a lot more goals in the Champions League this season. On the other end, Braga are having one of their best periods in the last decade and their attack is looking incredible.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We think that Braga have a very good chance in this match, given that Napoli are not having a good period. We do not think that they will be so dominant this season and we do not expect them to beat Braga on the road. Of course, anything is possible when two strong teams meet in the Champions League but the draw feels highly likely. Braga are an incredible home side and playing there is very tough.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-2 Draw
Picking a correct score for this game is tough and we think that the 1-1 and 2-2 scorelines are equally possible. Of course, the 1-1 option is the easier and more probable one but we have two high-scoring sides here that also concede a lot of goals. So, we are placing a small stake for the 2-2 option. When we compare the Braga vs Napoli line ups, we think that the visitors have a stronger squad on paper.
Braga vs Napoli Team Previews
Braga have a chance to make something special this season. The team is looking stronger than usual and they took some incredible teams on the way to the group stage. Their attack is massive and they are incredible at home. We think that they have real chances in this group if their form remains the same. They haven't lost almost any matches at home in recent years.
Napoli had a magical season last year and won the title in Italy for the first time in 30 years. They even managed to keep all of their top players for another year, so we generally expect them to achieve a lot again. However, the new season has not seen them in the best form and they already failed in two out of four games. It will be interesting to see them in the Champions League, where they dominated last year.
