The two struggling sides are set to face-off against each other at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, with Young Boys looking to host Valencia in the Champions League Group H.
The current Swiss champions have lost both of their matches in Europe, 3-0 to Manchester United and Juventus, in their Champions League debut. Meanwhile, they still top the Swiss Super League with nine wins after eleven fixtures, but they’ve failed to secure three points in the previous two league games. Gerardo Seoane’s side played out a 3-3 draw with Zurich after suffering a 3-2 home defeat to Luzern. Young Boys’ principal problem in the last ten encounters was their defensive game, considering they’ve only kept a clean sheet two times in the process.
On the other hand, the Bets are not having the best of times, as they currently sit in 14th place in La Liga with a record of one win, one loss, and seven draws. Only last weekend, Leganes managed to walk away from the Estadio Mestalla with a point, leaving the Oranges without a single home triumph this season. Additionally, Marcelinho Garcia Toral is yet to see his team clinching a win in the Champions League, as his side lost 2-0 to Juventus on the opening matchday, after which they played out a scoreless draw with Manchester United on the road.
Jordan Mvula Lotomba, Pedro Teixeira, and Gregory Wuthrich are sidelined by injuries in the home squad, while Goncalo Guedes won’t be featuring for the visitors after picking up a knee injury.
