Switzerland’s BSC Young Boys are probably already well aware that Rajko Mitić Stadium can be one of the most intimidating venues to play an away match thanks to the raucous fans of home side FK Crvena Zvezda — also known as Red Star Belgrade. But if those fans didn’t think their point had been made, they went extra lengths to let the visiting Young Boys know by parking a T-55 tank emblazoned with the Red Star logo outside of the stadium ahead of the Swiss team’s arrival, as Yahoo! Sports reported. Of course, either side will take any advantage available after a first-leg 2-2 draw in Switzerland. That means the winner of the UEFA Champions League qualifier goes straight to the group stage, from the match that will stream live from Serbia.
To find out how to watch a live online stream of the FK Crvena Zvezda (aka Red Star Belgrade) vs. BSC Young Boys UEFA Champions League qualifying playoff, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Central European Time at the 55,500-seat Rajko Mitić Stadium, formerly known as Red Star Stadium, in Belgrade, Serbia, on Tuesday, August 27.

The Serbian team enters the second-leg match with the upper hand, despite the draw, with two away goals in the first leg match. That means Young Boys must either win the second leg match outright, or in the case of a draw, score at least three goals. A 2-2 draw sends the two-legged tie to extra time, while a 0-0 or 1-1 result puts Crvena Zvezda through to the Champions League group stage for the second straight year, after making their debut last season, as The Inquisitr reported.
Young Boys also made their group stage debut last season. Riding on the match is a significant payoff for the winner. According to TotalSport, simply qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage comes with about $17 million in prize money, with another $3 million for every game won in the group competition.
