Slovan – Young Boys 2 1.75
In the second qualifying round for the Champions League, Slovan Bratislava welcomes Young Boys. The difference in quality is noticed and I fancy Young boys to deliver in the first match already. The teams have played before and Young Boys won with 3:1 and 5:0. Slovan went past Shamrock Rovers in round one but with great difficulty. They won at home but lost away and 1 goal decided the tie. It is nothing new that Slovan struggles against weak teams. They were eliminated by Sutjeska and Klaksvik in the previous years. Young Boys were eliminated by Midtjylland last year but now is another chance. They have a new coach who is eager for good results. Young Boys miss captain Lustenberger and the first attacker Nsame but I feel that Young Boys will still be too strong.
