Union Berlin will host SC Braga in a UEFA Europa League fixture at Alte Foersterei on Thursday. The hosts would be aiming to leapfrog the Portuguese outfit into the second spot in Group D. The Bundesliga outfit are currently occupying third spot in the group, having collected 6 points from four games, while Braga are sitting one place above them, with seven points to their name. A victory for Braga will seal their place in the knockout stage of the competition. Union Berlin are heading into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to VFL Bochum in a Bundesliga match on Sunday. The visitors, meanwhile, beat Estoril Praia 2-0 in a Portuguese Primeira Liga game, a day earlier. 

Union Berlin began their Europa League campaign with consecutive defeats against Union SG and Braga before quickly pulling their socks up to register back-to-back 1-0 wins against Malmo. Urs Fischer’s side are just one point adrift of Braga ahead of their meeting on Thursday, meaning a home win will keep their destiny in their own hands ahead of facing group-leaders Union SG in the final matchday next week. Domestically, the Iron Ones have been in stunning form, having collected 23 points from 11 games, to be sitting at the summit of the German top flight standings. 

Braga, on the other hand, are occupying second spot in the Portuguese top flight standings, having pocketed 22 points from 10 games, just six points adrift of leaders Benfica. Last time out, the Archbishops got the better of Estoril Praia courtesy of goals from Al-Mustrai and vitor Oliveira. It was Braga’s seven league-win of the season. Meanwhile, in the Europa League, Artur Jorge’s side have registered two wins, one draw and a defeat thus far. Their latest European match against Union SG on October 13 ended in a 3-3 draw courtesy of Oliveira’s hat-trick.
