The Young Boys receive Rotern Stern Belgrade from Serbia!
Young Boys vs Red Star Belgrade Soccer Betting Prediction
It’s a game that caused a sensation days before kick-off. Only 2,000 tickets have been reserved for the fans of the Swiss Champion for Belgrade fans. This corresponds to six percent of the capacity, five percent are required. Nevertheless, this caused displeasure, because it seems as if the Swiss do not want to sell tickets to the many Serbs in Switzerland. Serbian tabloids have already set the mood and scent a scandal.
The home advantage should be preserved, however, to secure the second CL participation in series. But also Crvena Zvezda has come in the previous year to the taste in the concert of the greats. For bookmakers, the knockout duel between the Young Boys and Red Star Belgrade is fairly balanced according to current odds. In the home game, the Young Boys are considered favorites, the artificial turf in the Stade de Suisse is certainly a big advantage.

Young Boys – Statistics & Current Form
Five competitive games, four wins, one draw, three times zero. The statistics after the first five competitive games in the new season can certainly be described as satisfactory and still had the team of Gerardo Seoane already quite a bit of criticism.
From the pure dominance of the past season is not much to see. The victories were mostly fought hard, the playful ease is still missing.
Fighting far more than expected, the Young Boys also had to win last weekend. The league paused and the first cup round was on the program. Against Etoile Courage struggled the Seoane-Elf to a narrow 1-0 win. For a long time, the fans had to wait before being redeemed. In the closing stages, the team could even thank goalkeeper David von Ballmoos, who held the victory.
“If I have the chance to score, I’ll do it with pleasure” – Jean-Pierre Nsame
A big problem is currently the large military hospital. Again and again Seoane has to rebuild, also against Etoile Courage there was an injured to complain, Marvin Spielmann was replaced after only six minutes. Mohamed Camara, Sandro Lauper and top two stars Miralem Sulejmani and Guillaume Hoarau are also out. After the Hoarau outage, hopes rest on Jean-Pierre Nsame. The 26-year-old Cameroonian is in good form and has already scored four Super League goals.
Although the Swiss champions are currently not in top form, the role as favorites against Red Star Belgrade is quite understandable. Above all, the artificial turf in the Stade de Suisse is a big advantage. Losses in front of a home crowd are a rarity.
Last year, for example, a draw against Valencia and a win against Juventus could also be realized internationally. To that end, a prediction on the home win is quite understandable between the Young Boys and Red Star Belgrade.
Probable team of Young Boys:
↳ Ballmoos – Garcia, Zesiger, Lustenberger, Janko – Martins Pereira, Sierro – Moumi Ngamaleu, Aebischer, Assale – Nsame

Red Star Belgrade – Statistics & Current Form
Not for the faint hearted was the return of the Serbs last week at the Danish champions FC Copenhagen. No fewer than 22 penalties were needed before the winner was determined. Due to the rain, the penalties did not mean that there was a penalty point left, but the decision turned into a “mud hole shooting” – with a better ending for the Salzburg fright of the past season.
The celebrated hero was Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan. First, he converted his penalty before he made the decision with the third parried penalty. The Canadian, with Croatian roots, has come a long way in his career, but has nowhere prevailed. In Belgrade Borjan is meanwhile revered, he has been able to hold no less than 53 times in 102 competitive matches. Crvena Zvezda will not score more than 50 percent of the games with Milan Borjan.
The team around the German globetrotter Marko Marin (who is even captain) has to give up three important pillars in Bern. Center-back Nemanja Milunovic is missing due to a yellow-red ban, sixth-placed Dusan Jovancic will not be available due to a yellow card suspension. In addition, Branko Jovicic will have to pass due to injury. That could be the debut of winger Mateo Garcia, who was signed this week.
The Serbs are considered extremely home strong, the fans in Belgrade provide an incredible atmosphere and even in the players tunnel many teams were already intimidated. A draw would be a result that the Serbs would definitely take away. With an away goal, Red Star Belgrade would probably be able to push open the door towards the group stage.
This will also be the big goal. In this respect, the tip on the “both teams to score” could certainly be an interesting option between the Young Boys and Red Star Belgrade.
Probable team of Red Star Belgrade:
↳ Borjan – Rodic, Pankov, Degenek, Gobeljic – Canas, Nikolic – Vukanovic, Marin, Ivanic – Boakye
