Team News

SC Braga
Braga boss Carlos Carvalhal could operate with a 4-5-1 formation as opposed to the 3-5-2 setup which was used against Leicester earlier this month.

Central defender David Carmo, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, is suspended so Raul Silva is likely to start alongside Bruno Viana.

Midfielder Fransergio tested positive for coronavirus at the start of the month and is a doubt heading into Thursday's match.
Braga possible starting lineup:
Matheus; Esgaio, Viana, Silva, Sequeira; Medeiros, Musrati, Castro, Horta, Galeno; Paulinho

Leicester
Brendan Rodgers may look to give some minutes to his returning players. Timothy Castagne, Wilfred Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira are all closing in on full recoveries and could feature from the bench.

The Leicester manager could name an unchanged side from the one that beat Braga 4-0 a few weeks ago.

Kelechi Iheanacho is set to lead the line with Jamie Vardy expected to be given a rest but he will likely be an option from the bench.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Forfana, Evans, Fuchs; Albrighton, Praet, Choudhury, Thomas; Under, Maddison, Iheanacho

Prediction: Braga 1-3 Leicester City
