The Champions League qualifiers stage is almost over and there are still six spots left for the Champions League Group Stage. Will Bern be the next team from Switzerland failing to qualify for this year’s campaign? Zagreb managed to come back from a 0-1 deficit and the match in Berlin ended in a draw. Will Bern be able to turn things around in Croatia?
Zagreb has already played in the first two qualifying stages of the competition and put up some really impressive results. They beat the Israeli champions, Hapoel Be’er Sheva, in the first round and kicked out FC Astana in the second round by beating them both on the road and at home. Zagreb did not concede a goal in both of their home matches and that will definitely be the key for them to advance to the Group Stage.
Young Boys on the other hand did not have to compete during the early stages of the qualifiers and just entered the stage. They have won of all five matches in the Switzerland Super League thus far and want to keep their dream of the Champions League alive.
The game will be starting at 21:00 CEST in the Maksimir Stadion in Zagreb. The match will most likely be televised on iTV and Sky Sports. Some bookmakers will also have live streams of this match. Make sure to check out the best live streams bookmakers to find out where to watch the game.
Young Boys will be competing without some of their key players. Sandro Lauper, Pedro Teixeira, and Jordan Lotomba are currently injured and are most likely going to miss the game. Zagreb on the other hand will be able to pull off their best lineup. Their manager, Nenad Bjelica, prefers a 4-1-4-1 system and they are probably not going to change their lineup. Young Boys are expected to play a more defense-oriented 4-4-2 system with two defensive midfielders in the centre.
Dinamo Zagreb Lineup: Zagorac, Stojanovic, Theophile Catherine, Dilaver, Leovac, Ademi, Hajrovic, Carvajal, Gojak, Orsic, Mario
Young Boys Lineup: Van Ballmoos, Schick, Wuthrich, Von Bergen, Benito, Fassnacht, Sow, Sanogo Junior, Sulejmani, Ngamaleu, Hoarau
Dani Olmo is one of the youngest players in Zagreb’s squad but he is also one of their biggest talents. After signing with the team four years ago, he has played in all of Zagreb’s five qualifying matches. He can play both left and right winger and can also occasionally be used as a central striker.
Zagreb is slightly favored to win this match in regular time. The Croatian side is currently 141/100 to win this game @ Pinnacle. Due to their great strength at home the odds for this match seem fair. Zagreb is extremely strong when they are playing at home and they are the more experienced team. They know what it takes to play in the Champions League and they also have a young and talented team.
However, Young Boys Bern should not be underestimated. They have had a great start into the season and have gone unbeaten in their last seven games. Bern is definitely capable of scoring a game on the road, even in Zagreb. It seems to be a little bit dangerous to bet on a home victory. Instead, we are going to put our money at risk by betting on Zagreb to win when there is no bet. 1 Draw No Bet at odds of 1.73 offered by William Hill seems to be a decent choice for this game.
