Young Boys vs Skenderbeu predictions- Young Boys’ fate has already been decided as the highest they can finish in Group B is third, and to do that they would need a win on Thursday. Skenderbeu occupy third place as things stand, but a victory could be enough to see them take second place ahead of Partizan. Results have to go in the Albanian sides favour if they are to qualify, with the visitors needing Kiev to beat Partizan and a win of their own to stand any chance of pinching second place.
These two sides met for the first time in their history back in September, where the pair played out a 1-1 draw in Albania. After a goalless first half it was the hosts that took the lead in the sixty-fifth minute via Sowe, but just seven minutes later Assalé equalised to make the final score 1-1. Both sides had their chances to win the game, but in the end a draw was probably a fair result.
Young Boys vs Skenderbeu predictions
Heading into this weeks final round of group games in this seasons Europa League its visitors Skenderbeu who are the form favourites after they remained unbeaten in their last six matches with three wins and three draws to their name. Young Boys have been playing some good stuff during that same period, winning three, drawing one and losing two, but they are the only side in the group yet to have won a single game.
Both teams have been in great scoring form of late, with Young Boys netting in each of their last six games in all competitions, while Skenderbeu have only failed to score in one of their last six. That suggests we will be in for excitement at both ends of the field on Thursday, with a high chance that both teams will get on the scoreboard.
Both teams have conceded more than they have scored in the Europa League this season, and we’re expecting that to mean more goals in the final group game, even though Young Boys have very little left to play for.
We’re backing both teams to score in this one as neither side have looked strong in defence so far in this competition and each are in good goal scoring form. In terms of a final score we’ve gone with a 1-1 draw, which sadly wont be enough for the visitors to book a place in the Knockout stages.
