For BSC Young Boys, the goalscorers were Christian Fassnacht (3'), Jordan Siebatcheu (19', 89') and Meschak Elia (44'). Bayer 04 Leverkusen got 16 shots at goal with 9 of them on target.

It has been seldom in recent games where BSC Young Boys have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Young Boys have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals in the process. We will see if that trend will be sustained here.

Christopher Martins Pereira (Hip problems), Vincent Sierro (Torn Muscle) and Esteban Petignat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Young Boys boss Gerardo Seoane.
Team News: Servette FC
Servette boss Alain Geiger has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ricardo Azevedo (Unknown Injury), Moussa Diallo (Unknown Injury), Boubacar Fofana (Collarbone fracture), Noah Henchoz (Unknown Injury) and Alexis Antunes (Unknown Injury) will not be playing here.
It looks to us that BSC Young Boys should be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
In contrast, Servette FC might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for BSC Young Boys by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
