UEFA Champions League Playoff Wednesday: 6 more teams fight for spots in group stage
These UEFA Champions League Playoff ties have been tough to call.
Wednesday, FC Sheriff Tiraspol heads to Dinamo Zagreb knowing a win, draw, one-goal loss, or two-goal loss will see them make the Champions League group stage for the first time. That is what a 3-0 win in the first leg gets you.
FC Brøndby comes home down 2-1 to Red Bull Salzburg, in a tie many thought would be over by now. And Shakhtar Donetsk has a chance to finish off AS Monaco after a 1-0 win against the Uber Eats side last week.
I would expect RB Salzburg to win, and Dinamo Zagreb should win (but might not advance). The third tie should be very tight, but Shakhtar finds ways to win these.
