After four years of dominance in the domestic championship, the Young Boys footballers finished the previous season in third place, behind Zurich and Basel. They started the new campaign with two wins, but in the last two rounds they drew against Grasshoppers and Basel. However, the other rivals in the race for the title have been playing erratically at the beginning of the new competition year, so Young Boys are at the top of the table after four rounds.
Unlike the Swiss Super League, they have been dominant in the UEFA Conference League qualifiers so far. The Young Boys eliminated Liepaja 4-0 on aggregate in the previous round and also won in Finland last week.
Raphael Wicky’s men have yet to concede a goal in these qualifiers, which shows just how dominant they are. This team has participated in the European competition for the last six seasons and they have a great chance to continue this tradition this year.
KuPS players have not been playing well lately. They are without a win in the last three games in all competitions, which is an indication of the decline in form of this team. Despite the mild crisis, they are still the leaders of the Finnish championship with 37 points, as many as HJK Helsinki in second place.
This team has participated in the qualifiers for European competition for the fifth year in a row, but they have never managed to reach the group stage. Their quality is simply not at a required level and every time they meet a more serious opponent, they are eliminated.
In the previous two rounds, they defeated Dila Gori from Georgia and Milsami from Moldova, but Young Boys are several levels above in terms of individual and team quality.
These two teams have never met before.
Young Boys (4-3-3): von Ballmoos; Lefort, Camara, Zesiger, Blum; Niasse, Ngamaleu, Sierro; Rieder, Elia, Nsame
KuPS (4-3-3): Kreidl; Toivomaki, Ricardo, Nuhu, Carrillo; Dahlstrom, Bispo, Oksanen; Uzochokwu, Vayrynen, Ikaunieks
We are of the opinion that the difference in quality is huge and we are confident that the Young Boys will register another easy and convincing victory.
