Braga have only kept 2 clean sheets in their 6 Europa League games and face a Birmingham side that have impressed in the competition this season.
Birmingham have became a visibly better side over the last month or so, and have the ability to put pressure on Braga, who are also a very capable side.
The Portuguese club’s last two European games have featured 9 goals, and Birmingham could get plenty of chances here.

Not an obvious choice when first looked at but upon deeper inspection PAOK have scored in all away fixtures in the Europa League, including in a 2-2 draw in Russia against Rubin Kazan, who are a strong home team.
Spurs don’t have the tightest defence at the best of times and are guaranteed to use youngsters in this tie. There could be a nice few goals in this match.

Celtic have a great chance of progressing in this tournament if they can beat Athletico Madrid, a result that looks a distinct possibility.
Athletico aren’t great travellers, but taught Celtic a footballing lesson when beating them 2-0 in the reverse fixture.
Celtic are leaky at the back when it comes to European football, and Their opponents should breach the Celtic net.
