Match preview

This is one of the most intriguing ties of the round, so who will claim a priceless first leg lead at Stadion Wankdorf?

BSC Young Boys appeared in their second Champions League group phase last season, having also qualified for the Europa League equivalent on seven occasions since 2010.

However, having finished third in Switzerland last season, they have to win three qualifiers just to get into the Europa Conference League.

Well, so far, Raphaël Wicky’s side have cruised through, winning all four matches, beating Liepāja 4-0 and then Kuopion Palloseura 5-0 on aggregate.

However, this will be a far tougher assignment, making this first leg in Bern crucial.

Anderlecht meanwhile boast impressive pedigree, lifting five major European trophies, most recently beating Benfica in the 1983 UEFA Cup Final.

In the previous round, Felice Mazzù’s team swatted aside Paide Linnameeskond, winning 2-0 in Tallinn and 3-0 in Brussels.

Wolves loanee Fábio Silva scoring in both legs.

This tie is, possibly, too close to call.
