CSKA Sofia vs BSC Young Boys – Prediction (Europa League – 26.11.2020)

H2H: CSKA v Young Boys – Comparison.

Ali Sowe scored a goal in all three of Sofia’s home qualifiers this term, including two first-half openers. The reverse clash saw Young Boys’ Felix Mambimbi become the youngest Swiss player to score 2+ goals in a European competition proper since Gaetano Giallanza, who did it for Basel in 1993. Young Boys scored three goals in the opening 31 minutes of the reverse fixture (W 3-0). Including qualifiers, however, their all-time second-half win margin across UEL victories (1.33) is far stronger than that of the first half (0.70).

CSKA Insights.

CSKA Sofia manager Bruno Akrapović takes to the Bălgarska Armija dugout for the first time. He has won just one of his three opening home games across his last three jobs (W1, D1, L1), and has a tough task ahead with Sofia winless in five UEFA Europa League (UEL) games (D1, L4 – excluding qualification), and standing as the only side yet to score a goal in the UEL proper. Sofia have won three (L5) of eight meetings vs Swiss opposition (90 mins only), with only one of those games producing a goalless first half (HT: W3, D1, L4). Notably, Sofia conceded the opening goal in all four such clashes since the 2010/11 campaign, whilst none of the overall home games saw both teams score.

Young Boys Insights.

BSC Young Boys currently protect a five-game unbeaten run (W3, D2). The Bern-based outfit can all but end Sofia’s qualification hopes with victory here, though they have not won consecutive games in Europe since two home victories in October 2019 (W1, D3, L1 since). Not strong travellers, Young Boys look to improve on their return of one victory from 23 European away games (including qualifiers) since a 3-1 victory over Bratislava in 2014/15 (W1, D8, L14). Notably, 12 games saw both teams score, whilst as many produced over 2.5 total goals (52.17%). The Swiss club drew two of three such games when favourites.
