Young Boys Preview

Young Boys will still be looking to respond positively to a devastating defeat in their last league outing, having gone down 4-0 down at home to Thun. It was a huge shock for Adi Hutter’s side, facing a team who had lost all three of their league games prior to their meeting, finding themselves 3-0 down by half-time after goals from Sandro Lauper, Roy Gelmi and Marvin Spielmann. Spielmann then added a fourth in the second half, in what was easily the biggest shock of the Swiss season thus far. Young Boys responded in the cup at the weekend, comfortably seeing off Breitenrain 3-0, but the pressure will still be on following that stunning defeat. Young Boys are still yet to enter the Champions League at the group stage level, with this being their fifth attempt to qualify for the Champions League proper, losing in the past to the likes of Tottenham, Monaco and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Gregory Wuthrich (knee) is ruled out for Young Boys, while Loris Benito (broken foot) is also unavailable.

CSKA Moscow Preview

CSKA came out on top in the Moscow derby in dramatic fashion at the weekend, coming from behind late on to beat Spartak 2-1 at the VEB Arena. Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic opened the scoring for the visitors in the second half, as CSKA struggled to break down their resilient opponents. However, with seven minutes to go, CSKA scored two goals in two minutes through Georgi Schennikov and Vitinho to turn the game on its head and leave Spartak wondering how they’d manage to lose a game in such a fashion. CSKA have started the Russian Premier League season with four wins and two defeats and beat AEK Athens over two legs to reach the final play-off round of the competition. The 2-0 win over AEK in Greece was the first time they have won an away game in the Champions League in their last eight attempts and was also the first time Igor Akinfeev has kept a clean sheet in the competition.
