Our prediction for this match:
Buoyed by a 4-0 crushing over Zurich in the season opener, Young Boys will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Liepaja in the Conference League second qualifying round, first leg. The Yellow-Blacks kicked off the new domestic campaign in style, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of the trip to Liepaja.
Cameroon international Jean-Pierre Nsame has lost his place in the starting XI, but France forward Wilfried Kanga is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Liepaja face an uphill task in Thursday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp in the second round of the Conference League qualifiers. Midfielder Nik Kapun is a major doubt after limping off with injury in a 3-1 win over Gjilani a week ago.
