Match Preview

It’s make-or-break time for Young Boys and Valencia, who clash in Bern knowing anything less than victory would deal a potentially fatal blow to their fading hopes of qualifying for the Champions League (CL) knockout stages.
Swiss champions Young Boys have found life tough in their first-ever appearance in the CL proper. Still pointless and goalless, they currently sit rock-bottom of Group H after suffering 3-0 defeats at the hands of Manchester United and Juventus. Gerardo Seoane’s side hold a comfortable lead atop the Swiss Super League however, despite having failed to win any of their last two outings.
Two-time runners-up Valencia, who find themselves third – three points behind Man Utd and five off pacesetters Juventus – got their CL campaign underway with a 2-0 home reverse to the Bianconeri, followed by a creditable 0-0 draw at Old Trafford. They are coming off back-to-back 1-1 draws at home to Barcelona and Leganés, and a ten-point haul after nine matches sees them hover dangerously close to the La Liga drop zone. Incredibly, Valencia have won just one of their 11 matches in all competitions so far this season (D8, L2).
This will be the first meeting between the pair. Valencia tasted defeat on their last visit to Switzerland back in April 2014, when they suffered a 3-0 thrashing by Basel in the Europa League quarter-finals – their only loss in eight encounters against Swiss sides to date (W5, D2).
Players to watch: Veteran forward Guillaume Hoarau leads the Super League scoring charts with eight goals already this campaign. He bagged a brace last Saturday.
A strike by Kevin Gameiro (11 appearances, one goal) secured Valencia’s first and only victory so far this campaign.
Stat attack: Young Boys have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 12 European matches.
Conversely, Valencia haven’t conceded a single goal in their last three away games in all competitions.
None of Valencia’s last 30 games have produced more than four goals.
