Young Boys Preview – Can Seoane’s side cause an upset?

Current Swiss Super League champions Young Boys are having another fine season domestically. Gerardo Seoane’s troops lead the way in Switzerland’s top tier, winning 14 of their opening 20 league matches. The club from Bern are a whopping 16 points clear of second-place Basel.

After being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Midtjylland back in September, Young Boys eased past Tirana to book their spot in the Europa League group stage. Seoane’s side won three of six matches to join Roma in the last 32.

(odds taken 1109 GMT, Wednesday 17 February)

Young Boys could be dark horses in this season’s Europa League. The Swiss team have gained invaluable experience in Europe in recent years, and Seoane certainly has a capable squad of players at his disposal. Can they upset Leverkusen on Thursday?

Bayer Leverkusen Preview – Will the Germans return home with a win?

Peter Bosz’s Bayer Leverkusen made an excellent start to their season, but Werkself have not been at their best in recent months. In fact, Leverkusen have won just one of their last five across all competitions.

In the Bundesliga, Bayer have lost five of their past nine, winning just twice along the way. Leverkusen’s poor run of results has seen them slip down to fifth, though they are still in a good position to challenge for the Champions League spots.
