Braga take a commanding 2-0 lead into the second leg against Monaco. The hosts made a rapid start: after three minutes Ruiz latched onto a deflected strike to slot past Nubel. And it was only Nubel who prevented Braga from adding to their lead in the first half. The goalkeeper made a string of fine saves to stop Medeiros and Gomes. Monaco had their moments, but the closest they came was when Ben Yedder's header was ruled out for offside by VAR. And it got worse for the visitors when Vitinha rose highest late on to plant a crucial header into the bottom corner to make it 2-0.
