Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier at Stadionul Sheriff pits together Sheriff Tiraspol and Alashkert, the two teams who are eyeing a place in round 3. The Moldovans won the first leg thanks to Henrique’s goal, and they are now on a quest to defence their slim led in the return leg. Ukrainian tactician Yuriy Vernydub is likely to stick to the 3-5-2 formation.
Alashkert, on the other hand, will have a mountain to climb in the second leg as they need to overcome a one-goal deficit on the road. The Armenians are not regarded as good travelers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Sheriff’s party at Stadionul Sheriff. You should bear in mind that Yuriy Vernydub’s troops are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground in the Champions League qualifiers.
