Wolves seek revenge in Portugal...
<div><div><div><div id=":ne"><div id=":nf"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Braga vs Wolves</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, November 28, at Estadio Municipal de Braga</strong></a></p><p>In-form Wolves face a stern test of their mettle when they head to Portugal to take on Braga on Thursday. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men suffered a 1-0 defeat when they hosted Braga at Molineux at the start of their Europa League campaign. However, they have won all three games since then and they are now just one point behind the Portuguese side in Group K. They have also gone eight games unbeaten in the Premier League since that defeat, which includes a 2-0 victory over champions Man City, so they should head to Portugal without any fear this week.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Braga have dangerous wingers in Wenderson Galeno and Ricardo Horta, and they could cause problems for Wolves in this game. Striker Paulinho leads the line and he is not overly prolific, with four goals in 11 league games, but Wilson Eduardo is another strong option off the bench. Brazilians Bruno Viana and Wallace anchor the defence reasonably well, and Braga have only conceded 15 goals in 11 league games this season. Yet they have scored just 14 in that time, and that profligacy in front of goal leaves them ninth in the table, 15 points behind league leaders Benfica.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Half of the Wolves team hail from Portugal and they will be desperate to excel when they return to their homeland this week. Their greatest strength is in midfield, where the technically gifted Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves can outfox virtually any opponents when on song. Portuguese number one Rui Patricio provides a steady presence between the sticks, and Portuguese manager Santo likes to play a back three of Romain Saiss, captain Conor Coady and Leander Dendoncker. Raul Jimenez leads the line with aplomb, with Diogo Jota and the rapid Adama Traore flanking him.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Wolves are the underdogs in this game and that is understandable after their 1-0 defeat at Molineux. However, their form has improved massively since then and they are now up to fifth in the Premier League table. They can leapfrog Braga into pole position in Group K with a win on Thursday, and they have the quality to pull it off. The pace of Traore and Jimenez on the break could cause nightmares for the Braga defence, and Moutinho and Neves have the quality to pick them out.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Unibet">Wolves draw no bet at 2.14 (57/50) with Unibet</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
