Young Boys can be competitive in the Russian capital

Copenhagen can progress to the group stages

Young Boys midfielder Leonardo Bertone may be key to their chances in Moscow

Playoff second legs
7.45pm Wednesday

Young Boys conceded an injury-time goal to lose 1-0 at home to CSKA Moscow in the first leg of their Champions League playoff round tie but they played well enough to suggest they will be competitive in the return match in the Russian capital.

The Swiss side know they have to win the game and will have to be more clinical than they were last Tuesday when they registered 21 shots and failed to score.

However, they have kept clean sheets in their last three away games and another shutout could lay the foundation for a memorable victory over CSKA, who have had a sketchy start to the Russian season - winning four, drawing one and losing two. 

FC Copenhagen have their backs against the wall after losing 1-0 away to Azerbaijan champions Qarabag last Tuesday but they can turn the tie around at the Parken Stadion.

The Danes did well in last season's Champions League group stage and were unlucky not to go further after losing just one of their six games.

They have had a slow start to their domestic campaign, taking nine points from a possible 18, but much of their focus has been on Champions League qualifying and they can clear the last hurdle standing in the way of a place in the last 32.
