Sheriff – Zrinjski
Sheriff hosts Zrinjski in a game from the Champions League’s first qualifying round on Tuesday. Stay with us because we are going to preview it in our free soccer predictions daily.
The first leg in Bosnia ended with a boring 0-0 draw. The home side made more shots towards goal, but not even one was on target. Meanwhile the Moldovians made just three shots for the entire game which is not speaking well for their attacking potential at the moment.
Sheriff are an interesting case because they have an international squad full of foreigners. In the first leg in Mostar they started the game without even one player from Moldova in the starting eleven. Their head coach is also a foreigner – the Croatian tactician Stjepan Tomas.
The Guinean striker Momo Yansane is one of the players who must score the winning goals against Zrinjski. That’s his second season at the club and he’s one of Sheriff’s best attacking players. Yansane’s performance in the next game is going to be crucial for the final result.
Zrinjski’s squad is entirely built by players from Bosnia and Croatia. This creates some excellent team chemistry, but this alone won’t be enough to win the second leg and reach the next qualifying round. The Bosnian side will need something “extra” to do the job.
The experienced 31-years old striker Nemanja Bilbija is the player to watch in Zrinjski’s team. He scored 33 league goals last season and proved to be one of the best players in the Bosnian league. His goals would be crucial for Zrinjski’s European campaign this season.
That’s the free soccer predictions daily for the Champions League qualifying game between Sheriff and Zrinjski. The Moldovians look in good position to reach the next round, but they should not underestimate their visitors. We wish you good luck with this one!
