Young Boys Preview – Can the Swiss champions make home advantage count?

Young Boys were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the qualifying rounds. After beating Ki Klaksvik 3-1, the Swiss Super League side lost 3-0 to Midtjylland, dropping into the Europa League as a result.

Gerardo Seoane’s boys won the Switzerland title last season. They have made a steady start to this campaign, winning two and drawing two of their opening four league matches. With eight points to their name, Young Boys are currently sitting in third spot, two points behind early leaders St. Gallen.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1340 GMT, Wednesday 21 October)

After being held to a 0-0 draw by Servette last time out, which was their second Swiss Super League goalless draw of the season, Young Boys will be keen to get back to scoring ways in Europe on Thursday. Of course, Roma are one of the tournament’s big names, but can Seoane’s side spring a surprise on home soil?

Roma Preview – Italians to leave Switzerland with all three points?

Paulo Fonseca’s Roma qualified for the Europa League by finishing fifth in Serie A last term. They had no complaints, as Lazio and Atalanta, who finished fourth and third, respectively, ended up eight points ahead in the final standings. The Champions League is where this huge club wants to be, but a season in the Europa League will have to do.

I Giallorossi have made a decent enough start to their Serie A season, winning two, drawing one and losing one to take seven points from a possible 12 so far. After losing 3-0 at Verona before drawing 2-2 with Juventus at home, Fonseca’s troops have won back-to-back games against Udinese and Benevento.

Key Facts – Young Boys vs Roma Betting Tip

  • This will be the first ever meeting between Young Boys and Roma
  • Young Boys won the Swiss Super League last term
  • Roma finished in fifth place in the 2019-20 Serie A season


With CFR Cluj and CSKA Sofia also in Group A, you would expect these two to battle for top spot in the group. This could be a close one at the Stadion Wankdorf, but we fancy the Italians to return home with all three points. Back the visitors to win at evens.

Even at 34, Edin Dzeko loves scoring goals. After netting two in Roma’s 5-2 success over Benevento last weekend, back Dzeko to open the scoring in Switzerland on Thursday at 4/1.
