Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Wankdorf when Young Boys and Ajax take on each other in the return leg of the Europa League last 16. The Amsterdammers rolled over the Swiss champions 3-0 at Johan Cruijff Arena. Ajax are with one foot in the quarter-finals, but boss Erik Ten Hag must warn his men against complacency. A man to watch in the away team will be Dusan Tadic, who is enjoying yet another successful season.
Given Ajax’s attacking potential, we are positive that the visitors will find the net in the return leg. Brazil rising star Antony, who was rested in a 2-0 win over Zwolle, is widely expected to return to the starting XI. Considering that Young Boys are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the return leg, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

Miralem Sulejmani is a product of Partizan football academy. The pacey winger played no more than one game in the Serbian Super League for Partizan before joining Heerenveen. The left-footed footballer impressed in the 2007/2008 season with de Superfriezen, with the Serbia international scoring 14 goals in 34 appearances in the Eredivisie.
