However, they have been excellent in Europe so far this season and they beat Serie A side Torino home and away to qualify for the group stage. Wolves have a Portuguese manager and a huge Portuguese contingent, so they will be keen to secure a strong result against Primeira Liga outfit Braga on Thursday.</p><h2><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a>Team News</h2><p>Willy Boly was suspended for Wolves’ defeat against Chelsea at the weekend, but he should return in a back three for this game. Nuno Espirito Santo made the surprise call to drop Ryan Bennett in favour of Romain Saiss on Saturday, but after that defensive shambles it would not be surprising to see Boly and Bennet play either side of Conor Coady on Thursday. Portuguese duo Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves make this team this and they will be keen to impress on Thursday, while Raul Jimenez should lead the line with customary aplomb.</p><p>Braga’s form is abysmal and a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Setubal at the weekend left them hovering just above the relegation zone. They lost 4-0 to Benfica in their previous game, and a defence consisting of Wallace and Bruno Viana looks shaky. Star man Wilson Eduardo is injured, but Ricardo Horta should provide creativity and quality from wide areas.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>This is the perfect game for a Wolves team in need of a confidence-boosting win. Their form has been poor of late as they have struggled to juggle European and domestic commitments – a fate that also befell Burnley last season – but Braga’s form has been even worse. The Premier League side look superior to Braga in every department and they should restore the good mood inside Molineux with a win on Thursday. A straight victory looks good at 1.67, or you can combine it with either over 1.5 goals or under 4.5 goals for more value.</p><p><strong>Tips: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Wolves to win and over 1.5 goals at 2.00 (evens) with Ladbrokes</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
