Young Boys vs Red Star Belgrade Match Preview
Red Star Belgrade look to make it to the Group Stage for the second year in a row as they meet Young Boys for their Champions League Play-offs clash, travelling to Switzerland on the back of a win over Copenhagen (on penalties after a 2-2 aggregate draw) and a three-match winning streak across competitions.
Indeed, Red and Whites have beaten Mladost Lucani (2-0) and Spartak Subotica (2-3) in two Super Liga outings since early August, building on their goalscoring records and now surely hoping this can help them to an upset at Stade de Suisse. They have struggled for defensive consistency on the road, though, and this could be more worrying for Vladan Milojevic at this point.
Young Boys have, on the other hand, beaten Etoile Carouge (0-1) on Friday and extended a four-match winning streak across domestic competitions, which sees them at the top of the league with ten points as well. They’ve proven themselves a tough nut to crack at this ground on many occasions and now hope to show off once again – having last suffered a home loss back in October.
YB have beaten Neuchatel Xamax (0-1), Lugano (2-0), and St Gallen (2-3) in three outings since late July as well, thus surely boasting great team spirits. They last met the Serbian rivals 15 years ago and will now have to work against the head-to-head records, having seen a 2nd Qualifying Round exit in their hands.
We feel Red Star Belgrade can make a step towards edging the rivals once again here and we’ll now stick our necks out for them to earn a Draw, which comes at 13/5 with bet365 and looks like more than just a longshot at this point.
Indeed, we’ve seen them scoring goals on the road and we hope for another thriller on their end, as we now also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill. Both have been scoring and conceding lately, which does add to such a belief as well.
