Analysis and forecast of the Champions League match Braga – Napoli (09/20/2023)
All football fans were waiting for this moment: the Champions League begins. On September 20, 2023, Braga will host Napoli in one of the matches at the Braga Municipal Stadium. The start of the match is scheduled for 22:00 Moscow time. Spalletti couldn’t win the Champions League with the Partenopeans, but what about Rudi García?

Last season, Braga took third place in the Portuguese championship standings, earning the right to advance to the group stage of the Champions League through qualification. It was fortunate that the “gunsmiths” faced passable opponents with whom they did not even have problems. First, Arthur Jorge’s team beat TSC (3-0 and 4-1) and then defeated Panathinaikos (2-1 and 1-0).
But the start of the Primeira Liga did not go well, because Braga lost to Famalicão in the 1st round match by 1:2. Furthermore, the team took the lead, but collapsed in the 67th minute. In the following matches, the armeros beat Chaves (4-2) and Moreirense (3-2) and tied with Sporting (1-1). Everything seems to be going well, but in the last match Arthur Jorge’s team lost to Farense 1:3.
The Scudetto winner also does not pamper his fans and leaves mixed impressions about himself. Does Spalletti’s departure really affect the overall tone of the club and Rudi García can’t cope with the all-star line-up? Furthermore, the Partenopeans started the Serie A season with two wins in a row. They beat first Frosinone (3-1) and then Sassuolo (2-0). In the 3rd round match, the Neapolitans suddenly lost on their field to Lazio with a score of 1:2.
Rakhimov to the limit:

The last meeting with Genoa brought even more confusion. Hardly anyone has seriously believed that the “griffins” could cause problems for the Italian champion. But the reality was that in the 56th minute Napoli lost 0-2. It seemed that the leader of the attack Rudi García had lost his aim. Only in the 76th minute did they manage to recover a goal thanks to Giacomo Raspadori. Politano’s goal tied the score six minutes before the end of regulation.
Something happened to Khvicha and the match against Genoa was the 21st in which he failed to score, including matches with the national team. All hope lies only in Osimhen, who has already scored three goals in Serie A. Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Piotr Zielinski are also in good form. Only in three of the four games in which Napoli participated were more than 2.5 goals scored. In the same number of games the team cannot keep a clean sheet.
Braga is also far from being a role model in defense. With 17 goals scored this season in all competitions, they conceded 12. In seven of eight games, both teams scored. There is no doubt that the match against Napoli will be productive. We expect intense offensive football, with many goals scored, mainly due to the defensive problems of both clubs. Bets on a total of over 2.5 goals and both goals will be accepted for 2.10.
Prediction and bets for the match Braga – Napoli on September 20, 2023
Both teams are not going to play defensively or specifically aim to demonstrate attacking football. Braga have conceded at least one goal in seven of their eight games this season, while Napoli have scored five goals in their four Serie A games. Particularly terrible was the last round, in which the Partenopeans had to counterattack, losing to Genoa 0-2. We expect mutual football from the clubs in attack.
Tender: both will score and the total will be more than 2.5 goals in 2.10.
