Heading into the third round of Champions League group stage fixtures, Braga will be looking to register back-to-back wins. The Portuguese club were 2-0 down to Union Berlin in their last game but secured victory thanks to Andre Castro’s winner in the fourth minute of injury time. Bouncing back from defeat to Napoli, it leaves Braga third in the group, but they will be largely positive about that. Braga have already equalled their win tally in the Champions League from their previous run in the competition, when they won one and lost five in 2012/13.
Real Madrid sit perfect after two games with victories over Union Berlin and Napoli, extending their own brilliant record in the competition. Los Blancos have the highest win percentage of any team in European Cup/Champions League history, winning 59.9% of their matches (a minimum of 100 played). With 285 victories from 476 games, Real Madrid have beaten an incredible 107 teams in the European Cup/Champions League, more than any other club in the competition’s history.
