Young Boys vs CFR Cluj Prediction & Match Preview

Young Boys vs CFR Cluj
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.55 UK
Venue: Stadion Wankdorf, Bern.

6th and the last round of Europa League group stages is scheduled for this Thursday! Group A has only one remaining question to be answered – who will accompany AS Roma into the playoffs? Champions of Switzerland team Young Boys are in a great position, needing just one point from the last match at home against CFR Cluj.

Romanians will have to go all-in here, but overall their performances in previous weeks were far from expectations. They managed to collect only five points so far. As expected, hosts are favorites for the win, currently priced at 1.53 odds.

Young Boys vs CFR Cluj Head-to-head

The first head to head clash between these teams in Romania ended without a winner 1-1 FT. Hosts had the lead as Mario Rondon broke the deadlock, but final result was set by Chris Fassnacht.

There was one unofficial, friendly match between Cluj and Young Boys in 2013. Once again, score was 1-1.

Interestingly, Swiss side has never beaten a squad from Romania on European scene in three attempts.

Young Boys vs CFR Cluj Prediction

Despite having not so great stats in terms of defense, Young Boys continue with domination in Super League.

Last weekend they managed to collect all three points on a rough away day to Luzern. Luckily squad from Bern scored three early goals very early. Hosts recovered a bit later on but still lost the match 2-3.

Young Boys are 1st on the table with 21 points from nine games. Highlight of the season was recent 2-1 home win against fiercest opponent Basel. Jean Nsame is the most dangerous player – he bagged five domestic goals so far.

CFR Cluj are nowhere close to the form which granted them title in Romania last season. They have only 24 points from 12 games in Liga I, allowing FCSB to create big six-point gap already. There is no other option but to play risky in Switzerland, which is hardly going to bring a positive result. Young Boys should have a lot of space to score versus Cluj on Thursday.
