Match Thread: FC Braga vs Wolves (Europa League)
Neto goes home
November 28 2019
Wolves travel to Portugal for tonight's game, hoping to avenge their 1 - 0 defeat at Molineux, and achieve the one point needed to reach the last 32 of this year's Europa League competition.
Pedro Neto returns to the club in whose academy his career began, hoping to start tonight's game as Wolves set out to face the only team they have lost to in this year's European adventure. Nuno will have decisions to make for tonight's line-up, especially in defence: Ryan Bennett is still unlikely to be fit and Romaine Saiss will be suspended for Sunday's important Premier League game against Sheffield United, so he may want a settled defence for the two games and may recall Max Kilman to centre left.
The game will be screened on BT Sports 2 this evening and kick off will be at 5:55 pm.

The pitch isn’t helping and there are a lot of silly fouls but the ref is being sensible and getting most of the decisions right. Both Adama/Doc and Diogo/Jonny are working the wide areas extremely well and the Braga defenders don’t seem to be able to cope.
Our defence has been largely untroubled and the whole team seems well focused and up for the game.
Should be able to add to the scoreline if we continue to play like this in the second half.
Best they’ve played this season in Europe!!
Sods freaking law!
Wolves fans are making themselves heard. Well done lads.
Braga 2 Wolves 3
And Braga are on the front foot now—- why do we do this to ourselves?
What a pudding of a pitch eh, Molineux (and other grounds) 70s style!!? And overall a great entertaining match.
The european adventure continues.
Wolverina , you say at " what cost" .. this is our first time in the European knockout stages for over 40 years and if the cost involves a few knocks and cards so be it. I don't believe there is any real advantage to be gained finishing first or second in the group with no guarantee of an easier draw if we achieved the latter. As we are one of the favourites to win the whole thing anyway, you could make a case for saying teams should fear us more than the reverse. As it currently stands the current favourites are Arsenal which says it all really.

So we do to Arsenal what Chelsea did last time and beat them in the final? Let’s do that then 😀 and see who the respective coaches are.
Assuming the rules will allow such a draw. Failing that bring on Rangers or Celtic!
