Young Boys vs D. Zagreb PREVIEW & PREDICTION 22/08/2018


In the Champions League play-off, Wednesday 22 August, starting at 20:00, the Young Boys – Dinamo Zagreb will be played. The confrontation will take place at the “Stade de Suisse” in Berne. Both bands are innocent this season.

After an excellent start to the championship, four victories as much as possible, the hosts struggled in confrontation with the modest Biel Cup (2-2). Moreover, they were a step away from a more shameful elimination. Taken this summer at Werder Bremen, Ulisses Garcia scored the goal of 2-2 in the 90 + 5 minute. At the end of the second round of extra time, the rescue came again at the end of the game, Guillaume Hoarau, marking the goal of the qualifying in the 120th minute. Thus, the striker veteran (34) continued his excellent evolutions this season, reaching five goals scored in as many games.

After hardly avoiding shame, Young Boys is now preparing to confront Dinamo in an attempt to enter the UCL. An attempt that was fallen into failure in each of the last three seasons. Rand, Monaco, Borussia M’Gladbach and CSKA Moscow stood in the way of this dream. In the six games played in the play-off, he has suffered so many defeats.

On the other side, the guests climbed third in the championship after winning Osijek, score 2-1. Transferring this summer, Kevin Theophile and Mislav Orisc scored the victory goals at the end of a game they dominated. Thus, Dinamo continues his grace period under the command of Nenad Bjelica, reaching six victories in the eight games this season. In the previous round, Dinamo eliminated Astana after a double victory in which he did not receive a goal. The 2-0 winning success was the first after a series of four draws and three defeats in the field.
