Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs will be looking to avenge their 3-2 first-leg loss suffered in Switzerland, and continue with the kind of form that gifted them a 2-1 victory against Stoke on Saturday at the Britannia Stadium

Tottenham will need to pick up their game against the Swiss side after going down 3-0 within the first half hour, and have to produce a victory in this Tottenham vs Young Boys football match to reach the glory of the Champions League.

The win over Stoke was not without its problems or its controversies, with Spurs forced to play a 4-5-1 formation due to Peter Crouch being the only fit striker. Indeed, it was left-back Gareth Bale who stole the show for the Londoners, with his amazing performance and two goals to win it for Tottenham.

It should have actually ended as a 2-2 draw after a late Stoke header seemed to have crossed the line, but was not called a goal by the referee and his officials.

 

Young Boys

The Swiss side, without the benefit of the astro-turf pitch that caused Tottenham so many problems in the first leg, will do well to get anything out of this Tottenham vs Young Boys reverse tie at White Hart Lane.

The Swiss team will need to hold their defence strong to keep the score down and sneak through with the most unlikely of results on Wednesday night.

After beating Fenerbahce in the previous round, Young Boys Bern will have to overcome another high-profile opponent to achieve the near-impossible.

 

Prediction

Tottenham are sure to put right quickly on Wednesday evening.

Much as their opponents did, Spurs will look to catch Young Boys out early and put the tie beyond doubt as soon as possible.

With their attacking stars back in the first team squad, it's impossible to see past a convincing win for Tottenham and a coveted place in this season's UEFA Champions League.

Tottenham - Young Boys Prediction: 3-0 to Spurs
