Zrinjski Mostar Vs Sheriff Tiraspol Preview – Sheriff begin their quest to reach the group stage of this year’s Champions League with the opening leg of their first-round qualifying fight against Bosnian champions Zrinjski Mostar on Wednesday night.
The winner of this first-round match will face either Maribor or Shakhtyor Soligorsk in the next round, and the visitors are hoping to shock the continent again.
In the 2021-22 Bosnian Premier League season, Zrinjski were the nation’s unstoppable force en way to the title and ended 27 points clear of closest challengers Tuzla City.
The Noblemen’s dominant season broke a four-year gap without winning the top-flight crown and constituted their second overall success, although Zrinjski have yet to properly set down a marker in Europe.
History is not on the side of this week’s hosts, who have never moved beyond the second qualifying round of the Champions League and fell on penalties to APOEL in the third round of Europa League Qualifying two years ago.
At this point in the season, Zrinjski are undefeated in their last 19 competitive matches, and they have already beaten Mura and Varazdin by an aggregate score of 5-1 in summer friendly.
Zrinjski Mostar vs Sheriff Tiraspol – Betting Analysis
As of previous season, Sheriff Tiraspol had been the first Moldovan team to get to the Champions League group stage, overcoming Alashkert, Red Star Belgrade, and Dinamo Zagreb in the process.
With expectations that they would be the whipping boys of Group D, Yuriy Vernydub’s former side surprised everyone by winning their first two games and then going on to defeat eventual champion Real Madrid.
They finished third in Group D and qualified for the Europa League knockout rounds. Sheriff’s European conquest against Braga was ended by penalties, despite a 2-0 first-leg victory, and the 20-time Moldovan champions’ newest continental trip begins under the guidance of Stjepan Tomas.
When Tomas’s team take on Zrinjski for the first time at Stadion pod Bijelim Brijegom on Saturday, Sheriff will be hoping for another silverware double.
