Sporting Braga vs Fiorentina: Kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Fiorentina will need to produce something not in keeping with their Serie A form if they are to make it past Braga in the Europa Conference League.


Fiorentina may be languishing in the bottom half of Serie A but they have got a Europa Conference League knockout round tie against Portuguese side Sporting Braga to contend with on Thursday night.

La Viola are down in 14th currently and suffered a defeat against old rivals Juventus on Matchday 22. Braga meanwhile, have won four of their last five in Portugal’s Primeira Liga and sit in third place, meaning they are on track to qualify for the Champions League.

They will back themselves against a Fiorentina side that came second in a Europa Conference League group containing Istanbul Basaksehir, Hearts, and RFS.
