On Thursday, on “Stade de Suisse” in Berne, we have the match Young Boys vs FC Porto, in the Europa League. The fight for qualification in Group G is extremely close.
Young Boys – form of moment, last results, statistics
Young Boys have played two 7+ matches in the last two matches in the first Swiss league, which they like to bet on. Both disputes were won by 4-3, against those from St Gallen, home, and Sion, away. With these six points, YB strengthened its leadership position in Switzerland, with 34 points collected in 15 rounds, 38-21 goalscoring. A single failure so far in the championship, a 0-3 at Servette. The defense is as weak as those of Luzern, in the 8th place. But the Young Boys have only scored four goals in the Europa League group and are leaders, with seven points, 6-4 goal. On their own ground, they beat both Rangers 2-1 and Feyenoord 2-0.
FC Porto – moment form, latest results, statistics
FC Porto was disappointed that it did not take the Champions League groups, so it was somewhat logical that it would not put a high price on the Europa League. Especially when the fight for the championship with Benfica is as intense as ever. Conceicao’s boys come after a success in 1/16-cups, 4-0, at home, with Setubal. As for the championship, it is two points behind Benfica, with 28 points in 11 rounds, 22-5 goal. In the final stage, Porto passed Boavista, away, scoring 1-0. The problem is that the Portuguese are in the last position in the group of EL, with 4 points, goal 3-6. He lost both trips without scoring, 0-2 with both Feyenoord and Rangers.
Young Boys vs FC Porto Picks
Porto may not have scored in the two trips so far, but the Portuguese have the offensive force. And guests can take advantage of the fragility that YB has been showing lately. A negative result is equal to the elimination, so Porto will pull hard to score in Switzerland. At the same time, I don’t see how an attack-focused band like the Young Boys won’t find the opposite gate at least once.
Our Prediction: Both Teams Score
