The Foxes have faced little resistance in the group stage so far, scoring nine goals and conceding only once, and will be confident of recording another victory here to reach the knockout stages.

The reverse fixture saw Brendan Rodgers’ men ease to a 4-0 win and another three points for them is priced at Evens (2.0) with bet365.
Braga had won their previous two Europa League games prior to the loss at the King Power Stadium but are 12/5 (3.40) outsiders to get revenge on the Foxes.
Neither side has, remarkably, drawn a single game this season and you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on that run being ended with a stalemate on Thursday.

Braga vs Leicester City Team News
Timothy Castagne, Wilfred Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira could all be named on the bench after recovering from injury, but otherwise Rodgers is unlikely to have any qualms about starting the same side that won the reverse fixture.
David Carmo is suspended for Braga, who will also be without Fransergio after he tested positive for coronavirus earlier in the month and has not featured since October.
Braga vs Leicester City Preview
Leicester saw their six-game winning run in all competitions ended with a 3-0 loss at Anfield on Sunday night but that is unlikely to demoralise the Foxes too much.
As well as the victory in the reverse fixture, Rodgers’ men enjoyed a big win over Zorya earlier in the Europa League and only four other teams in the tournament have scored more goals than the Premier League side.
That said, Braga created plenty of chances at the King Power Stadium and after scoring five times in their two fixtures since then, it would not be a surprise to see plenty of goals in this one as well.
Braga vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions
It is set to be an action-packed fixture in Portugal and over 2.5 goals is priced at just 4/5 (1.80) with bet365, but combining that with both teams to score pays out at Even money (2.0).
