Young Boys host Atalanta in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 23rd at Stadion Wankdorf (Bern)
Young Boys came up huge in the first round of the Champions League group stage when they beat Manchester United (2-1). But then they suffered three consecutive defeats. It is quite natural that the Swiss are only in 4th place in the group with three points. Interestingly, David Wagner's charges conceded at least one goal in each of the four matches of the Champions League group stage. The Yellow-Blacks can still get into the playoffs of the Champions League and Europa League. Before a defeat to Villarreal in the last round, the Swiss have lost in eight consecutive home matches (six victories and two draws.) If YB ties in the upcoming game, it will lose chances for promotion to the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. But the team will continue to fight for a place in the UEL.

Atalanta has grown accustomed to getting in the Champions League playoffs in recent years. However, now Gasperini's charges are not among the most likely candidates for reaching the 1/8 finals of the tournament. They have five points after four rounds. This is enough to be in 3rd position. The lag behind the two leaders of the quartet is two points. In the last six matches in the Champions League, the Goddess won only once, with two draws and three defeats. The Italians have not won in three consecutive away games of this tournament: one draw and two losses. Atalanta players should be in good spirits now. In the last round of Serie A, they were stronger than Spezia at home (5-2).
It is quite logical that the visitors are considered favorites of the upcoming game. They are simply superior in class. Just do not forget that Atalanta has not gained a single victory in the last three away matches in the Champions League. At the same time, before losing to Villarreal at home, Young Boys did not know the bitterness of defeat in eight consecutive matches. I think that even if the Italians win, there is definitely no need to expect a big difference in the score. I propose to bet on the exchange of goals.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score — yes
