Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Young Boys did well to shock Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League third qualifying round and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the tie against Bundesliga side Borussia M’gladbach. The Swiss side play their home games on artificial turf and they are tough to beat at their Stade de Suisse. Young Boys hammered Veltheim in the Swiss Cup at the weekend, but coach Adolf Hutter rested a number of first-team regulars for Tuesday’s football match against Borussia M’gladbach. The German team were scoring goals for fun last season and seeing that the club chiefs managed to keep hold of a number of their star players in the summer transfer window, it is no surprise the Bundesliga side are regarded as favourites on paper to make it to the Champions League group stages. When the two teams met in a friendly earlier in 2016 they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw and that is the main reason why we predict a number of goals will be scored in the first leg.
Highlighted Player (Christoph Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development.
Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career.
Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
