Linfield were knocked out of the Champions League after their worst result in the qualifying stages, as they were beaten 8-0 by Bodø/Glimt in the second leg despite having picked up a victory in the first.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Draw

Linfield might appreciate coming back to home comforts for the crucial first leg game against FC Utrecht. After the horror show at Aspmyra Stadion against Bodø/Glimt, Linfield would prefer to play in front of their supporters. FC Zürich will know that Linfield collapsed after being reduced to 10 men early in the game. In the absence of such an event, Linfield might be very competitive at home.

Total goals under 2.5

After the horror defensive show in the second leg against Bodø/Glimt, Linfield are expected to make some changes to the line-up and they may also be in a psychological to avoid conceding a big score. This can result in quite a defensive game. Zürich have managed only two goals in the last three matches.

Both teams to score – yes

Even though Zürich have only come up with two goals in the last three games while failing to score in two of them, they have crucially performed in European games with four goals in the two legs against Qarabag. One can expect a similar good performance from Zürich in this away game.

Linfield

Linfield went through a troubled spell during the second leg against Bodø/Glimt. It will take quite a while for the team to recover from the 8-0 hammering, but they have to around quickly to at least salvage a place in the Europa League group stages. Manager David Healy does have a fully fit squad available for this fixture.

Zürich

Franco Foda’s first experience in the Champions League qualifiers has been quite good with the team almost making it to the latter stages before being knocked out by Qarabag on the margins. Foda comes into the game without Blerim Dzemaili in the squad due to an injury.
