Just a reward for your attack efforts and persistence last week, Young boys Return to Swiss ground level with CFR Cluj-Napocawhile the couple for a seat in the Champions League Playoffs.

The second leg of the third qualifying round on Tuesday is perfectly prepared after YB’s late equalization in Romania, so that the national champions of their respective nations are doing everything they can to advance in the Wankdorf Stadium.


Prediction for this match

After saving a 1-1 draw in Cluj last week, the Young Boys took a big step towards the playoff phase at the end of this month, where they would face either Slavia Prague or Ferencvaros for a place in the actual Champions League .

It was a replacement Vincent Sierra who finally reacted to the home side’s opening goal in the 93rd minute – shortly after being substituted on, but almost an hour and a half later Cristian Manea‘s hit in the fourth minute. Just as the home side wanted to hold onto their narrow lead, Michel Aebischer intervened, his free kick being transformed by a cheerful Sierro.

Certainly, in their qualifying campaign, the Bernese made a habit of doing things the hard way as they were sweating in the preliminary round before beating Slovan Bratislava 3-2 overall – after wasting nearly three goals Had lead at home, they were mighty relieved to make progress.

Now, to reach the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition for the second time in its history, David WagnerThe side will be determined to improve their early exit last season – when they lost 3-0 to Denmark’s Midtjylland – by ending the game against Cluj.

Wagner, who was appointed head coach in June, is known for his commitment to offensive principles and took this approach into account in his most recent appointment to the reigning Swiss Super League champions.

After finishing their fourth title in a row before Basel last season, they started the new domestic season somewhat unpredictably; Lucerne defeated Lucerne 4-3 in the opening game before a frustrating goalless draw against Grasshoppers and a 0-1 loss against Sion at the weekend.

In stark contrast to their Swiss, Cluj have won six out of seven games in the past few weeks – the only outlier was last week’s first leg – and began defending the national title with the maximum number of points from four league games in a row.

After running past Lincoln Red Imps in the second qualifying round of the Champions League, the Railwaymen also made it to the top of the early League 1 standings to claim the fourth Romanian title in a row.

They have a more recent history with Young Boys, however, as the two previously faced each other in last year’s Europa League group stage – with the Transylvania team winning neither at home nor away. In fact, it was a particularly controversial encounter at the last appearance at the Wankdorf Stadium when three men were sacked after the hosts’ dramatic late comeback in stoppage time.

That night in December last year, the Croatian striker did Gabriel Debeljuh made up for his start in the 84th minute with two goals in added time for the Young Boys, and the 24-year-old has already scored twice in qualifying. For the home game last Tuesday, however, he was out and only came on in the second half.

Still it has been in the last few months Marius SumudicaDebeljuh’s team have often relied on Debeljuh because of his goal threat and physical presence on the offensive.

Although David Wagner’s team may be in the driver’s seat after the first leg result, the Young Boys remain without a star striker Jean-Pierre Nsame this week because of a muscle injury. Nico MaierHe’s about to return, however, and could even join the squad on Tuesday.

It is expected that in Nsame’s absence there will be a US international Jordan Siebatcheu will start up front in a 4-4-2. Either young starlet Felix Mambimbi or Congo DR striker Meshak Elijah but should join him Wilfried Kanga started in the defeat against Sion and could at least be used from the bench.

After enjoying his late equalizer in Romania, Vincent Sierro missed a penalty and was replaced at the weekend Christopher Martins Pereira favors partner Michel Aebischer in the machine room of the house owner.

Meanwhile, Cluj have concerns about the forward’s fitness Denis Alibec, who was eliminated in the 27th minute of the first leg due to injury. If he misses it, then Gabriel Debuljuh or Alexandru Paun could get into the XI.

Veteran captain Camora recently returned from injury and will regain his place in the left back four – having played over 300 games for CFR – while last week’s goalscorer Cristian Manea starts on the right.

Young Boys possible starting line-up:
From Ballmoos; Hefti, Camara, Zesiger, Lefort; Ngamaleu, Aebischer, Martins, Fassnacht; Elijah, Siebatcheu

CFR Cluj possible starting line-up:
Arlauskis; Manea, Cestor, Bouhenna, Camora; Hoban, Sigurjonsson, Susic; Omrani, Debeljuh, Paun


SM words green background

Probability: Young Boys 2-0 CFR Cluj (Young Boys win 3-1 in the overall standings)

The late equalizer last Tuesday could be key for the Young Boys as they are now well positioned to get on the front foot at home – which fits their preferred style of play exactly.

Cluj are certainly in good shape but that can be ended by a team that haven’t beaten them in three games in the last few months and that will slide into the Europa League playoffs.
