Braga previously won the first leg of the semi-final 3-0, a fixture Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’ did not play a part in. Koka also did not feature for his club on Thursday night due to the injury he suffered a few weeks back, instead, spearheading Rio Ave’s attack was former Egyptian Premier League top goalscorer William Jebor.
