Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Skenderbeu Korce Partizan put an end to their three-game winless run in the Europa League and they will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Young Boys at their Stadion Partizana. The Crno-beli aim to retain second place in Group B and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Thursday’s football match. The Swiss side, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the process, but considering that they are not regarded as good travelers, away win should not be considered. The hosts will be without key player Zoran Tosic, who misses the match through suspension and, taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides are going to play out a draw in Belgrade. A man to watch in the away team will be Cameroon international Jean Pierre Nsame, who has been scoring goals for fun in the Swiss Super League this season.
Highlighted Player (Zoran Tosic):
Zoran Tosic is a Serbian winger playing for CSKA Moscow under a reputation of a free-kick specialist and a tricky dribbler. Technically gifted player has become an important asset for the Army Men in recent years who has made huge strides to prominence after his failed move to Manchester United. The 29-year-old Serbia international moved to Old Trafford in 2009 from Partizan Belgrade, but has only played 74 minutes of competitive action for the Premier League side. The Serbian was quickly demoted to the reserve team before leaving the club on loan to Bundesliga outfit FC Koln. Tosic played just 13 league matches in Germany, but still managed to grab plenty of attention with his impressive appearances. It wasn’t long before Russia’s powerhouse CSKA came knocking offering Tosic a five-year contract with a transfer fee believed to be worth £8 million. Serbia international has been a national team regular since 2007 so far notching more than 70 appearances for his country.
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.
