Back Tottenham, Roma, and Braga to all win in our boosted Portugeezers Europa treble

The Europa League and Europa Conference League find three Portuguese managers in need this week, but will they be obliging?

Europa League and Europa Conference League soccer resumes this week, and it has probably come at a good time for a trio of Portuguese managers.

Nuno Espirito Santo really needs to move the Tottenham narrative onto some more positive footing after their defeat to Arsenal, while Jose Mourinho and Roma have their own derby-day defeat to put behind them too.

Completing the trio is Braga boss Carlos Carvalhal, who needs to get their European campaign up and running after losing their group opener.

And, courtesy of Planet Sport Bet, you can back all three to win in a 5/2 boosted treble.

Tottenham vs Mura 05 (Europa Conference League)

For all soccer is wonderous in its ability to inspire wide-ranging and diverse opinions, I think one thing we can all agree upon is that Tottenham are not having the best of times right now.

They spent their summer trying to essentially hold their star player and captain hostage, and although they were ultimately successful, the Harry Kane they have managed to keep does not look like the one they wanted.

There was the protracted manager hunt too, which involved deciding they didn't want Nuno Espirito Santo before a slow realisation that nobody better actually wanted Spurs.

Three wins in their first three Premier League matches did a marvellous job of papering over the cracks, but three league defeats since have brought them hurtling back down to earth, with the 3-0 loss to bitter rivals Arsenal providing the most painful of landings.

If ever a club needs a reset and to start building momentum, then it's Tottenham, and the Europa Conference League gives them that opportunity this week.

Slovenian side Mura provide the opposition, and realistically Spurs shouldn't have too many problems dismissing them at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Nuno put out a strong side for their last Europa Conference League match away at Rennes, and should he do the same here the Premier League side should have no problem at all in getting a confidence-boosting win.

FC Zorya Luhansk vs Roma (Europa Conference League)

Former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho made a very positive start at Roma. But while the wheels haven't come off, they have at least started to wobble a little of late.

Two 3-2 defeats in Serie A have hurt Mourinho's men. First, they suffered a surprised loss at Verona, although they did respond with a solid 1-0 home win over Udinese a week later.

The one that would have hurt far more, though, was a derby defeat to Lazio last week. Roma started horrendously against their city rivals and were two goals down inside the first 20 minutes at the Stadio Olympico. They rallied, but ultimately to no avail.

Like Tottenham, Roma could do with a bit of a reset this week, although Ukrainian side Zorya may prove tricky opposition.

In their opening Europa Conference League group match, Mourinho shuffled his pack and came away with a 5-1 home win over CSKA Sofia, so it's likely he will give more game-time to the same players in this one.

Zorya lost their first match in the Group 3-1 at Bodo/Glimt, although their form in the Ukrainian League has been impressive. They have scored 13 goals in their last five games domestically, so confidence will be high.

However, that confidence is unlikely to bridge what amounts to a huge leap in terms of the quality of opposition, so it's hard to see anything other than a routine Roma win.

Braga vs FC Midtjylland (Europa League)

Braga and Midtjylland meet for their first time in this Europa League clash, and it's the hosts who need to find a way to win it.

The Portuguese side lost their opening Europa League group match 2-1 at Red Star Belgrade. All three goals came in the final 15 minutes in what was a bizarre yet entertaining encounter.

Midtjylland, on the other hand, have been doing what they have been doing for years - dominating the Danish league and being really awkward opposition in European competition.

They drew their first group game against Ludogorets, with the Bulgarian side's goal in the 1-1 draw the only one Midtjylland have conceded in their last five matches.

In fact, domestically the Danes have not conceded a goal since a 2-0 defeat to Brondby on August 29.

That said, Braga are usually very tough nuts to crack at home in Europe, as many of the continent's most established sides will attest, so you'd back them to see off Midtjylland.
