UEFA Champions League: Young Boys Wary Of Attacking Side Tottenham Hotspur

August 17, 2010 By Angela Asante
1959 European Champion Clubs’ Cup semi-finalists Young Boys could participate in this season’s prestigious UEFA Champions League tournament for the first time in their history. That is, if they defeat England’s Tottenham Hotspur on aggregate in the play-off.

BSC Young Boys Coach Vladmir Petkovic On Tuesday night, Swiss club Young Boys will take on Spurs at home in the first leg of this fixture. Despite possessing the home advantage, the underdogs are quite wary of their opponents’ threat.

Young Boys Chief Scout Stéphane Chapuisat underlined Tottenham Hotspur’s high level of performance as he talked about their English Premier League match against Manchester City which he saw live as a spectator at White Hart Lane.

“Tottenham put City under a lot of pressure. They played very aggressively with attacking wingers.

"They created several outstanding opportunities and they could have won by a clear margin.”

Young Boys' Bienvenue celebrates with his mates as they score against Fenerbahce.

Indeed, Manchester City could be called fortunate for running away with a 0-0 draw last weekend, considering the number of chances that Spurs had. Harry Redknapp’s players weren’t wasteful either; Manchester City’s goalkeeper Joe Hart and the post were always there as luck deserted the Londoners. 

Repeating the resilient football spiced with an attacking flavor which they displayed against the Sky Blues should be enough for Tottenham Hotspur to work something positive out – especially if luck finally gets on their side. In the same way, the Swiss are dreaming of upsetting their counterparts tonight just as they stunned Turkey heavyweights Fenerbahçe in the 3rd qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.

Coach Vladimir Petkovic, who is two steps away from emulating the achievement of fellow Swiss team FC Zurich by reaching the group stages of Europe’s biggest club competition, declared:

“These are the matches for which you play football. We want to seize our small chance. If we play like we played against Fenerbahçe, with the same level of passion and maybe a little bit more efficiency, then we won’t be without a chance.”

Young Boys lost 1-0 to Neuchatel Xamax in their domestic league last Saturday. They also haven’t won a competitive match at the Wankdorf Bern Stadium since May when they defeated St. Gallen 2-1. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 to Benfica in a club friendly in Portugal the last time they played away from White Hart Lane. That was actually Spurs’ only away encounter in their last five fixtures.
