Prestige match for Young Boys in Bern
Young Boys will meet with Juventus in the 6th round of the Champions League group stage in Group H at the Stade de Suisse stadium tonight.
Immediately after the group stage draw, it was clear that it would be incredibly difficult for Young Boys to achieve even third place. And even Valencia’s crisis didn’t help the Swiss team to turn the situation in their favour. Young Boys gained only one point in five rounds and dropped out of the fight for third place ahead of schedule. Now all they have is the prestige match against Juventus, which will solve their task with first place in the group.
As for Juventus, they made things difficult when the team lost to Manchester United in the fourth round at home. Now, the Bianconeri, in order to count on first line, need to beat Young Boys. Or hope that the Red Devils won’t win in the parallel duel.
Young Boys: von Ballmoos — Mbabu, Lauper, Benito — Fassnacht, Aebischer, Ngamaleu, Sulejmani — Nsame, Assale, Hoarau
Juventus: Szczęsny — De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Cancelo — Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi — Dybala, Mandzukic, Ronaldo
Referee: Tobias Stieler
Stade de Suisse, Bern
