Young Boys is welcoming Roma to Wankdorf Stadion in round 1 in the UEFA Europa League.
Young Boys is one of the best teams in Switzerland, and they are the reigning champions of the Swiss Super League. Young Boys were playing in the Europa League last season as well, but they ended up in third place in their group, and they didn’t advance past the group stage. Young Boys are in good form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 6 games. In their last Super League match against Servette on the road, Young Boys has had 59% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 87% of the correct passes. Young Boys was the better team here, and both teams have conceded a red card in this match. Both teams were playing good soccer on the defensive end, and this match ended up in a 0-0 draw. Lauper, Petignat, Aebischer, Spielmann, Pereira, Camara, Garcia, and Gaudino are all injured for Young Boys. Young Boys have scored only 3 goals in 4 games in the Super League so far this season, and they are not playing good soccer in the attacking end. I’m afraid all the injuries in Young Boys team have impacted their game, and they will have a tough time playing in the Europa League until those players are recovered.
Roma is playing well in Serie A, and they haven’t lost any of their last 3 games while winning their last 2 games. During this stretch, Roma has scored 6 goals while conceding 2 goals. With 7 points, 8 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals, Roma is in 8th place in the Serie A standings. In their last Serie A game against Benevento at home, Roma was the better team with 52% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. After losing 0-1 in the 5th minute, Roma has shifted gears, and they turned the game around until the half time. In the 55th minute, Roma has conceded another goal, and the result was now 2-2. Roma was the better team in this game, and they have scored 3 more goals, for a final result of 5-2 in Roma’s favor. Roma reached the Round of 16 in this competition last season, but they got knocked out by Sevilla at this stage. Veretout is the leading goalscorer for Roma with 3 goals, while Mkhitaryan added 3 assists. Zaniolo, Pastore, Diawara, Smalling, and Calafiori are all injured, and they will not be playing in this match. Roma is playing well, and they are a good team with solid depth. I think Roma will have another good season.
Roma is the better team here, and Young Boys are not playing good soccer in the attacking end, and they have been hit by injuries. We are getting Roma for a nice plus money, and I’m taking it.
