NK Maribor and Braga shared the spoils as they drew their Europa League Group H clash 1-1 at Ljudski vrt.

Agim Ibraimi opened the scoring for Maribor in the 14th minute before Uwa Echiejile equalised for Braga just before the break.

The slippery conditions played their part in Ibraimi's opening goal, as several Braga defenders slipped in the box and failed to clear their lines.

The ball landed at the feet of Ibraimi who fired a low shot past Silva Quim.

Rodrigo Lima almost equaliser for Braga less than 10 minutes later but his close-range strike flew over the bar.

Braga kept up the pressure, and Maribor goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic was forced into a clearance in the 25th minute when Nascimento Vinicius headed Miguel Viana's inswinging corner from the centre of the area.

Minutes later, Braga won a free-kick in a good position when Ales Mertelj fouled Jorge Barbosa, but Viana's free-kick was blocked by Soares Arghus.

The defender made another clearance just after half an hour when he blocked Lima's shot as the visitors threw everything into finding the equaliser.

Viana delivered another testing free-kick 10 minutes before the break, forcing Handanovic into another save, before goalscorer Ibraimi almost doubled Maribor's lead at the other end when his shot was punched clear by Quim.

However, Braga did find the equaliser just before the break thanks to a slice of luck for Echiejile.

Viana's free-kick bounced off two Braga players before Echiejile poked home from close range in a scrappy piece of play to level the scores before half-time.

Viana almost put Braga in front five minutes after the break but his shot flew over the bar.with Maribor defender Dejan Trajkovski's shot going the same way in the 59th minute.

After that there were few clear-cut chances in the second half with the best coming from successive Ibraimi corners for the home side, but both were cleared by Braga's defence.

Uwa Echiejile's handball in the final minute gave Maribor a chance in the dying seconds but Ibraimi's free-kick was caught by Quim in the last real action of the game.
