Young Boys News and Form

Both of these teams made their Champions League group stage debuts last season. One of them will be getting back for a second bite of the cherry. Young Boys earned their first-ever Champions League proper match win when they collected a 2-1 success over Juventus on matchday six. That was such a big occasion for them. Young Boys have come into the qualification process at this play off stage as the reigning Swiss champions.

Red Star Belgrade News and Form

Red Star Belgrade finished bottom of their section in the group stage proper last season, but they did also get a notable win during the campaign. That was a home win over Liverpool, who of course went on to be crowned champions. In the qualification playoffs last season, Red Star earned a 2-2 aggregate away goal success over Salzburg. Whereas their opponents Young Boys are coming into the European campaign at this stage, this will be Red Star Belgrade’s seventh European match this season.

They beat Suduva 2-1 on aggregate in the first qualifying round, won 3-2 on aggregate against HJK Helsinki and then a penalty shootout win over FC Copenhagen in the last round. So there has been some tight calls for them but they have battled through. Red Star Belgrade are W6 D3 L1 this season. They have one clean sheet in their last five played. They have won five of 13 previous matches against Swiss opposition, just one of those were away.

Young Boys v Red Star Belgrade Predictions

Young Boys to win: With Red Star Belgrade not having any kind of away from under their belt then the sensible option here would be to look at the home win. Young Boys are coming in fresh but they may not find the visitors too much of a threat.
