It looks as if BSC Young Boys will possibly use a 4-3-1-2 system for the game, handing starts to David von Ballmoos, Lewin Blum, Mohamed Ali Camara, Cedric Zesiger, U. Alexandre Garcia, Christian Fassnacht, Cheikh Niasse, N. Moumi Ngamaleu, Fabian Rieder, Wilfried Kanga and Cedric Itten.
Team News: Grasshopper Club Zürich
Grasshopper Club Zürich manager Giorgio Contini has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tomás Ribeiro (Meniscal Injury), Simone Stroscio (Unknown Injury), Florian Hoxha (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Sang-bin Jeong (Ankle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It’s our belief that GCZ seem most likely to play in a 3-5-2 system with a starting lineup of André Moreira, Noah Loosli, Georg Margreitter, Ayumu Seko, Bendegúz Bolla, Amir Abrashi, Tsiy William Ndenge, Hayao Kawabe, Dominik Schmid, Francis Momoh and Giotto Morandi.
Our thinking is that BSC Young Boys should be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
Conversely, Grasshopper Club Zürich may well find it hard getting goals although we do think that they will probably end up managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
We’re tipping a 3-1 victory for BSC Young Boys when the full-time whistle blows.
