Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Young Boys and Liepaja face each other at Stadion Wankdorf in a David-vs-Goliath clash. Young Boys won the first leg thanks to Christian Fassnacht’s goal, but they should have score more goals in the 1-0 triumph over Liepaja. The Yellow-Blacks kicked off the new Swiss Super League campaign in style, and it is no surprise the bookies see them as hot favourites to win Thursday’s clash.
Both Kanga and Itten are pushing for a start, while experienced attacker Nsame should drop to the bench. The Latvians, on the other hand, face an uphill task in the second leg, and seeing that Young Boys have turned their Stadion Wankdorf into a real fortress, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Bern.
