Slovan Bratislava will meet Young Boys in a match of the 2nd round of the Champions League qualifications for the season 2021-2022, as both teams try to enter the group stage. The hosts beat Shamprock Rovers, and the guests from Switzerland qualify directly for this round, after winning the Swiss championship last season.
Slovan Bratislava is facing an experienced team, which we have often seen in the groups of the Europa League, and coach Vladimir Weiss will again be able to rely on some new names, as some of the starters are injured or will not be available for this match. Lucas Lovat, Erik Daniel and David Holman are treating injuries and will mainly rely on Ratao and Weiss to score goals. Slovan has the opportunity to advance, but it will not be an easy task. The team still has the advantage of playing this match at home and probably fans will be present in the stands, albeit in a reduced lineup.
Young Boys is the favorite in the match according to the bookmakers. They performed at a level in previous qualifiers, especially for the Europa League. Against the Bulgarian CSKA Young Boys showed class, fast play and accurate passes. Then they won both matches, and in the group only Roma managed to oppose them. Stable team, with great players and ambitions in European tournaments. In my opinion, in this match the Swiss are more likely to win, but I will prefer the position of both teams to score, as you can see the current odds for this position in 22bet ot other bookmaker you prefer.
Probable lineup Young Boys: Von Ballmoos; Hefti, Camara, Zesiger, Garcia; Elia, Aebischer, Rieder, Ngamaleu; Mambimbi, Siebatcheu
