They tell you that European nights at Anfield produce some of the best atmospheres in world football, but you can guarantee plenty of nerves inside the Kop End on Thursday.
With talismanic skipper Steven Gerrard missing and Luis Suarez cup-tied, a weakened Liverpool team will have to produce their finest performance of the Europa League so far to progress and at 8/11 to qualify, punters may be better looking at the 1/1 for Braga to qualify.
Braga were humiliated by Arsenal at the Emirates earlier in the season but while Arsenal were the top scorers in the Champions League, Liverpool have managed nine goals in their nine Europa League games, and five of those ended without the Reds troubling the scorers.
Liverpool are unbeaten at home in the Europa League this season and are understandably huge favourites at 4/9 to beat Braga.
Braga’s home form is a lot stronger than their away form in Europe but after wins over Partizan Belgrade and Sevilla, the Portuguese side can’t be written off and they are a big price at 7/1 to win.
A 1-0 win for Liverpool is the favoured result at 5/1 and would send the tie into extra time.
A nervy game means chances will come at a premium and backing under 2.5 goals at 4/6 looks a solid bet, while either a win or a draw would be good enough to see Braga through and the 0-0 draw is backable at 7/1, while a 1-1 draw is available at 6/1.
Liverpool have it all to do and Braga will put up a stubborn fight meaning Kenny Dalglish will have to use all his tactical nous.
Andy Carroll may prove the difference and the big man is 3/1 to get the first goal.
