Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand will sit out tonight’s encounter. However, United’s attacking brilliance should prove the decisive factor, even if it may take time to make hay against a stubborn Braga outfit who will sit back and look for opportunities on the break.
Braga conceded 26 goals in the Portuguese top flight last term and 14 of those arrived in the final 30 minutes of games, so backing the Reds to score between minutes 60.01 and 75.00 at 19/10 and minutes 75.01 and full-time at 7/5 could also pay off.
In the goalscorer markets, Wayne Rooney is 4/1 to score first, evens to notch at any time and 5/1 to bag at least two goals, as he did against Stoke City last weekend, while Robin van Persie is at 5/2 to break the deadlock and 3/5 to score at any time.
