Surprise winners of Manchester United in their first match, Young Boys Bern receive Villarreal on behalf of the third day of the group stages of the Champions League. Opposite, the Spaniards have still not won a game in this competition and intend to seize this opportunity to stay in the race for qualification. To follow this meeting, meet on Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. at the Stade de Suisse.

They had created a surprise on Matchday 1 by defeating Manchester United in the dying seconds of the game, but Young Boys Bern were unable to do so again at Atalanta Bergamo. Indeed, the Swiss found themselves powerless on the field of the Dea which, ultra domineering, truly suffocated its opponent and logically won (1-0). The Bernese then saw their impressive 10-game unbeaten streak in all competitions come to an end. But it was without regret that they finally re-experienced the bitter taste of defeat. The Young Boys would have actually signed with both hands to appear in second place in this group after two days.

In any case, the Swiss are in good shape at the start of the season and they intend to play their card to the full in this competition. After their loss to Atalanta, they rebounded in the best possible way, handing a scathing 0-6 to Servette de Genève in the league. When the break came back, things went a little less well against the red lantern Lucerne (1-1), but again, they were able to show character to get back to the score to 10 against 11.

Ultimately, this is a team that should not be underestimated as they have nothing to lose in this competition and always act as an outsider. At home, we can be sure that she will throw all her strength into the battle to try to surprise against a Villarreal side who are not at their best at the start of the campaign.

Winner of the last Europa League, Villarreal gives us a paradoxical impression on this start of the season. On the one hand, the Valencians appear impressive in their ability not to lose. On the other hand, how frustrating this team is not knowing how to win! Indeed, with a record of six draws in ten games, Unai Emery’s men regularly disappoint their supporters and fall short of their status as Europa League champions. For example, they are only 12th in La Liga and are currently bottom of Group F in the Champions League. They owe it to themselves to react.

Going back to their Champions League run, it should be noted that Villarreal did not look bad. Against Atalanta Bergamo he led 2-1 before being tied in the 83ᵉ minute after a goal by Germany’s Robin Gosens. Rebelote in England, two weeks later, where he suffered the law of Cristiano Ronaldo who came to offer victory to his team at the very last second of the meeting. As we explained previously, these two games are a reflection of the frustrating start to the season for the Valencians. All does not appear to be lost, however, and a victory over the Young Boys would give them a real kick-start in the qualifying race.

In any case, Villarreal did not necessarily put himself in the best conditions for this. This weekend, he conceded his first loss of the season in the league to the surprisingly surprising team Osasuna on a ball from Aïssa Mandi.

The main absences to note for Bern are those of Fabian Lustenberger, Jean-Pierre Nsame and Cédric Zesiger who were not already there during the meetings against Manchester United and Atlanta Bergamo. Absent against the Italians, Christian Fassnacht will be present on Wednesday. As a reminder, he was elected man of the match against the Red Devils.

Finally, like last weekend, Young Boys Bern could use a classic 4-4-2 for this meeting. Goalkeeper Von Ballmoos is expected to take the captaincy.

As for Villarreal, only the absence of Boulaye Dia is to be deplored. The former Stade de Reims striker is on his way to recovery from a knee injury, but he should still be too close to claim a Champions League fixture.

Otherwise, Unai Emery can count on all his players to face the Bernese. He could line up with a 4-3-3 with a formidable attacking line consisting of Arnaut Danjuma, Gerard Moreno and Yeremy Pino. The latter notably shone with Spain in the recent game against Italy.

If Villarreal appears favorite in this meeting according to the bookmakers, we think he will have a hard time overcoming these over-motivated Bernese and at home. Indeed, Villarreal is struggling to conclude this season and appears, in this regard, lacking confidence. In this context, we believe that the two teams will decide with a draw.

Whatever happens, Villarreal will have to uncover himself to try and grab his first Champions League victory this season. Therefore, spaces should open on both sides and it could be that the two teams score in this meeting.

Author of a superb goal for his return from injury last Sunday, Gerard Moreno is usually effective in the Groguets jersey. Thus, we believe that he will be keen to celebrate his return to the Champions League with a goal.
