Young Boys host Villarreal in a UEFA Champions League Group F fixture at Stadion Wankdorf. The Spanish side are in search of their first win in the competition and given their erratic form this season, could find things difficult at the home of the Swiss champions.

Young Boys suffered a 1-0 defeat at Atalanta last time out in the Champions League. They were second best for much of the encounter, mustering only one attempt on target while also given away several chances to the Italians.

That was the first defeat in 13 matches across all competitions for Young Boys, who have looked solid this term. It is a result that manager David Wagner will be keen to put behind him with his team still in with a chance of progressing from the group.

Young Boys are solid at home with five wins in their last six matches at Stadion Wankdorf, including a 2-1 victory over Manchester United in their opening fixture. They have however kept just one clean sheet in their last six home matches.

Europa League champions Villarreal are still without a win after two matches in this year’s Champions League. They began with a 2-2 draw against Atalanta before suffering a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United in their second fixture despite taking the lead through Paco Alcacer.

It has been a generally poor start to the season for Villarreal, who are in the bottom half of the table in La Liga. They have claimed just one win in their last four matches and were beaten 2-1 at home by Osasuna in their previous domestic fixture on Saturday.

One major problem for manager Unai Emery is Villarreal’s poor record on the road where they have failed to win a single away match across all competitions this season.

How the bookies view it

Despite their struggles this season, Villarreal still have the edge among the bookies at 6/5 with Sport Nation. A victory for Young Boys is valued at 40/17 by SBK while a draw is set at odds of 11/4 by Betfred.

Head to head

This will be the first ever meeting between Young Boys and Villarreal.

Players to watch

Jordan Siebatcheu has caught the eye for Young Boys this season with five goals in the Swiss Super League. The striker was also in target in the Champions League win over Manchester United and is priced at 23/10 by Paddy Power to score anytime.

Gerard Moreno often leads the line for Villarreal and is priced at 7/5 with bet365 to score anytime. Winger Arnaut Danjuma has also impressed this season with five goals across all competitions and is valued at 5/2 by Unibet in the same market.

Anything else catch the eye?

There has been BTTS in five of the last six matches for Young Boys and Wednesday’s clash is likely to follow a similar pattern at 20/31 with MansionBet. There have also been over 2.5 goals in five of their last six matches at Stadion Wankdorf and a repeat could be in the cards at 13/17 with Sport Nation.

Young Boys and Villarreal tend to score more goals after the break, so the second half could be tipped as the highest scoring half at 103/100 with Sporting Index.
