Last season, Young Boys won the 16th title in their history, so they got another opportunity to play in the Champions League. Actually, Young Boys had to pass one qualifying round before that, but the Swiss champs didn't have too many problems with Maccabi Haifa. With those games, Young Boys now have nine matches without losing in all competitions. In the previous game, they won 1-0 on the road against Xamax in the cup. Young Boys expected a much easier win, but eventually, they needed Silvere Ganvoula's goal in the second half's stoppage time to secure another victory. That wasn't the best performance ahead of the start of the Champions League, but fans hope that players can step up versus RB Leipzig. 

RB Leipzig didn't play that many matches like Young Boys in the new season, but their results are equally impressive. At the start of the season, RB Leipzig started with an impressive 3-0 against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup. After that, Marko Rose's team won three of four Bundesliga rounds. In the previous match, they won 3-0 at home versus Augsburg. Another easy win will give RB Leipzig more than enough for Tuesday night's Champions League clash against Young Boys.

Young Boys vs RB Leipzig pick: RB Leipzig to win and cover AH -1 spread

Young Boys started well in the 2023/24 season, but they have problems with scoring goals in the last couple of matches. Young Boys scored only two goals in the last two matches. On the other hand, RB Leipzig scored 11 goals in the previous three games. 

RB Leipzig are a much better side, so I expect them to win and cover AH -1 spread in the game against Young Boys.

Young Boys team news

Young Boys don't have serious problems with injuries. The only player that should miss the game on Tuesday versus RB Leipzig is Filip Ugrinic. The rest of the squad is ready to play. 

Young Boys' head coach Raphael Wicky used a mixed lineup for the game against Xamax in the cup on Friday, but he is expected to field the best possible team in the upcoming tie.

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig team news

RB Leipzig have big problems with injuries. Dani Olmo, Amadou Haidara, El Chadaille Bitshiabu, Willi Orban, and Peter Gulacsi are injured and will not play on Tuesday in Bern. Still, RB Leipzig are a very good team and will not have problems to field a great team despite the injuries. 

Xavi Simons is one of the players that RB Leipzig will heavily rely on. The Dutchman has three goals and four assists in the first four Bundesliga matches this season. That kind of quality is something that the Swiss champs will hardly deal with.
