Following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Lugano, Youngs Boys will look to return to winning ways when they face Sporting CP in the Europa League last 32, first leg. Raphael Wicky’s troops have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-oriented approach against the Lisbon Lions. January signing Joel Mvuka Mugisha is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute at the weekend, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.

The Primeira Liga outfit, on the other hand, rolled over Braga 5-0 to retain top position in the standings and they are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s clash as well. Ousmane Diomande is a major doubt, while Ivan Fresneda remains on the sidelines with injury. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Young Boys experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the draw with Lugano.
