Young Boys
BSC Young Boys played their first match since the winter break in a 1-1 draw against Luzern in their last match, ending a run of four wins in a row in the league. Over the course of six matches, only Red Bull Salzburg (21), Villarreal (15), Borussia Monchengladbach (14) and Wolfsburg (14) of the 96 group stage teams scored more goals than Young Boys' 13 goals during the group stage and only Villarrael had a better goal difference among the runners up. BSC Young Boys won four of their six matches at the group stages and obtained more points (12) than any other runner up at the group stage.

Possible Line ups

Everton topped their Europa League Group with 11 points which is the lowest of the 12 group winners, although they had qualified with a game spare. Only Club Brugge, Inter Milan, and Legia Warsaw (2) conceded fewer goals than Everton in the group stage (3). Everton have played 11 away matches in the knockout stages (Including pre-group stage matches) of the UEFA Cup/Europa League since qualifying for the tournament for the first time in 1975/76. Everton have won two, drawn two and lost seven of those matches, their wins coming against Finn Harps in 1978 and SK Brann in 2008. The Toffees lost 3-0 to Sporting Lisbon in the away leg at this stage of the tournament in 2010, despite winning the first leg 2-1.

Statistics & Injuries

Europa league is the only thing left for us in the season and I hope we go till the end. Expecting us to play like Wolfsburg away and get a goal at counter. Defence has been sound for the last few games so quite confident about that aspect but we have scored only 1 goal in last 4 games and that worries me. Hopefully our attacking players step up and do well there.

definitely not to be taken lightly.

they've had good results against more than decent opposition...and they are comparatively free-scoring.

would be nice to wriggle through this one by the odd goal.

While I like the lineup a lot I think we will almost certainly see Mc Geady start.

Is right Shogs. Summat constructive to talk about.
