Hearts Preview – Can the Jambos turn tie around?

Hearts head into this one having lost their last two league and cup matches. After the defeat in Switzerland, Robby Neilson’s side were beaten by Premiership champions Celtic in the league last weekend, losing 2-0 at Celtic Park.

Hearts have had a mixed bag of results this season. Before the first leg of this play-off tie, the Jambos had kicked off their league season by taking seven points from a possible nine, beating Ross County and Dundee United, and drawing with rivals Hibernian.

Turning this tie around against the Swiss champions will be no easy task. However, Tynecastle will be rocking, and Neilson’s Jam Tarts will certainly fancy their chances. Hearts are the favourites to win on the night at 7/5.

Zurich Preview – Will the Swiss side hold on in Edinburgh?

Zurich are the Swiss Super League champions after winning their domestic division by a whopping 14 points last term. They qualified for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League as a result. However, they were knocked out by Qarabag.

Franco Foda’s side have made a woeful start to their title defence, failing to win any of their opening five. They are currently rock bottom of the Swiss Super League table on two points, drawing two and losing three of their opening five.
