Real Madrid travel to Sporting Braga in the Champions League on Tuesday night (20:00), hoping to pick up their third successive victory in Group C. We’ve picked out a couple of the best markets on offer in this European clash.
Real Madrid are the clear favourites to come away with three points here at 4/9. Sporting Braga can be backed at an enticing 9/2, while a draw is priced at 10/3.
Both teams have scored in eight of Braga’s last nine games. Both teams to score (Yes) can be backed at 4/7.
In both sides’ last outings in the Champions League they took part in five-goal matches. Braga won 3-2 at Union Berlin while Madrid won at Napoli with the same scoreline. Over 3.5 goals can be backed at 11/10.
Victor Gomez is Braga’s only absentee heading into Tuesday’s game.
Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Dani Ceballos and Arda Guler are all unavailable for Tuesday’s trip to Sporting Braga.
Real Madrid and both teams to score (Yes) @ 8/5
Real Madrid have been on fire this campaign, winning their opening two Group C fixtures, as well as eight of their opening 10 matches in La Liga. After failing to defend their European and domestic crowns last year, Carlo Ancelotti and his players will want to make amends in 2023-24. And with the star-studded quality they have at their disposal, they have a good shot at reclaiming both this year.
This should see them get through the challenge against Braga in midweek, but the Portuguese outfit have been impressive themselves so far in this group stage. They have what it takes to cause Los Blancos some problems but we’re still expecting Madrid to make it three wins from three.
Vinicius Jr to score anytime @ 6/5
After having to endure more disgusting racist abuse at Sevilla at the weekend, Vinicius Jr will want to get back to what he loves doing on Tuesday and that is playing football.
The Brazilian hasn’t quite hit the heights in terms of goals yet this campaign, especially with Jude Bellingham grabbing all the headlines, but we fancy him to get his fourth of the campaign against Braga.
Vinicius Jr scored in the win at Napoli last time out and his other two goals have come in La Liga. The winger will want to bolster his tally in both competitions and he will look to seize his opportunity do so in Europe on Tuesday night.
