Young Boys vs Maccabi Haifa preview: News, form, and possible lineups

Read all about these two teams ahead of their duel here, including our predicted Young Boys vs Maccabi Haifa lineups:

Young Boys

Young Boys were unable to reach the group stages of any European competition last season, as they faltered at the last few stages in the Conference League against Anderlecht. This time around, manager Raphael Wicky is intent on making the most of his team’s better fitness levels to reach the Champions League group stages after a season’s absence and after a draw in first leg in Israel, they only need a win over Maccabi Haifa at home in the second leg to achieve this.

Young Boys predicted lineup:

Racioppi, Benito, Janko, Camara, Amenda, Ugrinic, Lakomy, Chaiwa, Itten, Ganvoula, Joel Monteiro

Maccabi Haifa

Maccabi Haifa are aiming for a second consecutive season in the group stages of the Champions League. The team has experienced a very good run of form leading up to the crucial play-off matches against Young Boys, but they failed to win in the first leg at home after the game ended without goals.

Maccabi Haifa predicted lineup:

Nitzan, Sundgren, Goldberg, Cornud, Seck, Chery, Sabia, Muhammad, Haziza, Jaber, Pierrot

Player to watch: Filip Ugrinic

While we can see another draw in this matchup, both teams have players capable of breaking the deadlock and one of them is Filip Ugrinic, our player to watch in this match.

The Swiss midfielder has been in good form for Young Boys this season, with one goal and two assists in four games he appeared in, so Maccabi Haifa will have to be wary of Ugrinic in this duel.
