Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu will host Thursday’s football match between Cluj and Young Boys. Cluj have been producing fine performances in all competitions of late, and you should bear in mind that they are on a three-game winning run ahead of the visit of Young Boys. The Romanian outfit kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 2-0 win over CSKA Sofia, and they are surely capable of matching Young Boys at home ground.
The Swiss champions, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Roma. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. A man to watch in the home team will be Cameroon international Nsame, who scored the winner against Luzern at the weekend, while Young Boys defenders should have attacking duo Rondon – Debeljuh at bay.
Highlighted Player (Billel Omrani ):
Billel Omrani is a French footballer descent who plays for CFR Cluj as a forward. Born in Forbach on June 2, 1993, Omrani started his youth career at the age of six. Following spells with Merlebach and Gymnastique Marienau youth teams, Omrani moved to Marseille in 2007, and he continued playing for the OM senior team.
After scoring one goal in six appearances in the league for the club, Billel Omrani moved to CFR Cluj in 2016, but, in a meantime, he played for Arles-Avignon on loan as well. The French attacker has established himself as a first-team regular at the Romanian club, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the France national football team.
Omrani, though, has two caps with the France U19 team. His elder brother Abdelhakim is a footballer as well. Abdelhakim plays for Romanian club Dunarea Calarasi. Omrani’s favourite position in centre-forward, but he is used as a winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Young Boys):
Just five years after its foundation Young Boys won their first Swiss Super League trophy (1903). The capital club won no less than 11 domestic trophies in the 20th century, but they have been in Basel’s shadow in the last two decades. Young Boys won their last Swiss Super League title back in 1986, while lifting their last Swiss Cup trophy in 1987.
The Yellow and Blacks welcome their rivals at Stade de Suisse, which acts as a national stadium and it has to be noted that they play their home games on artificial turf. Swiss football legend Stephane Chapuisat played for the club in the past and you should bear in mind that former Yugoslavia coach Vujadin Boskov played for the Stade de Suisse outfit in the past as well.
Young Boys played their first official game on 29 June, 1898 and they shared the spoils with Institute Grunau back then. The Swiss team participated in the 2016/2017 Champions League qualifiers, but they failed to make it to the group stages of the elite competition.
