Match Date: 02 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadion Letná


Young Boys’ demolition of Slovan Bratislava created tons of opportunities for the club to advance in the latter stage of the competition.  The Swiss outfit is almost assured of entering into the next phase due to its massive win. But not until the tournament is down to its final match, the Young Boys must continue snatching more victories


The contenders

Sparta Praha

Sparta Praha is in dire need of victories when they suffered a 3-1 defeat under the hands of the Italian giant, Napoli.


Until improvements are shown, the club’s possibilities of advancing in the competition remain slim. As a matter of fact, hosting the upcoming match will not guarantee that they will outlast football betting’s top pick, Young Boys.


Young Boys

Young Boys 5-0 thrashing of Slvoan Bratislava propelled them to the top spot of Group I. Should its success continue, they elicit a huge potential of entering the semis or even the final round of the tournament.


Unfortunately, the Swiss giant is forced to perform its business without the help of Raphael Nuzzolo. Nuzzolo incurred a red card during Young Boys’ close match against FC Zurich.


Possible head turners

Although Nuzzolo will be sidelined, Young Boys can always count on the services of the reliable defender,  Jan Lecjaks.
