Braga unlikely to be repeat Europa League finalists after Besiktas win 2-nil away

Braga 0 – Besiktas 2 (Europa League first knockout round first leg, February 14, 2012) Braga’s match imploded midway through the first half when Helder Barbosa was dismissed after collecting his second yellow for simulation, and minutes later the 10 men were behind as Tomas Sivok executed a powerful header from a Manuel Fernandes corner. The Arsenalistas were starring down the barrel in the 57th when Simao was sent clear through the middle and he steered his shot past Quim.
