Crvena Zvezda Prediction – Can Crvenz Zvezda break deadlock?

It’s seemingly advantage Crvena Zvezda ahead of this crucial 2nd leg in Belgrade as the hosts secured what could prove to be a vital 2-2 draw away in Switzerland against Young Boys, and having scored 2 away goals, this places Crvena Zvezda in a favourable position here.

The hosts have lost just 1 of their last 13 matches overall in all competitions, and that was a 2-1 defeat away at HJK in the 2nd leg of the 2nd qualifying round against the Finnish club, but Crvena Zvezda had registered a 2-0 win at home in the 1st leg to progress.

Crvena Zvezda entered the Champions League at the 1st qualifying round stage where they recorded a 2-1 win on aggregate against Lithuanian side, Suduva which saw them progress to the 2nd qualifying round where they beat the aforementioned HJK.

It took a penalty shoot-out against Copenhagen though in the 3rd qualifying round to reach these play-offs after the scores were locked at 2-2 on aggregate after the two legs, and Crvena Zvezda will be hoping they can avoid another penalty contest against Young Boys in this tie, which currently stands at 2-2.

Young Boys Prediction – Can Young Boys secure win in Belgrade?

A penalty from midfielder Hoarau rescued a 2-2 draw for Young Boys in the 1st leg of this Champions League play-off tie with Crvena Zvezda which has kept the Swiss side in this tie ahead of their trip to Belgrade.

Young Boys bring an 8-match unbeaten run into this deciding leg which consists of 6 wins and 2 draws, so the visitors will still be quietly confident that they can get a result in this 2nd leg and progress through to the lucrative group stage of the Champions League.

Recent results have seen Young Boys win their last 3 away matches on the trot at Neuchatel Xamax and St Gallen in the Swiss Super League as well as a Schweizer Pokal cup win at Etoile Carouge, but these wins are in stark contrast to results away from home in the Champions League.

The visitors possess a woeful record on the road at this level as they’ve lost 10 of their 12 away ties to date, so the win markets should be avoided here; however, Young Boys must get a result here as a draw is no good to them with Crvena Zvezda scoring 2 away goals last week.


Key-Facts – Crvena Zvezda v Young Boys

  • Crvena Zvezda have lost just 1 of their previous 7 ties in the Champions League
  • Young Boys have lost 10 of their 12 away ties to date in this competition
  • 2 of the previous 3 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Another eventful tie could be on the cards here with both teams going for the win to secure their place in the group stage, and both could score as a result.
