All or nothing for OB against Young Boys

Odense BK must beat BSC Young Boys to stay in the UEFA Europa League after a 4-2 loss in Berne left them with nothing to show for their first three Group H fixtures.

Odense BK are in need of some points as they welcome BSC Young Boys in the UEFA Europa League with a 4-2 loss in Berne on Matchday 3 leaving them with nothing to show for their first three Group H fixtures.

• OB must win to avoid elimination.

Previous meetings
• The sides met for the first time on Matchday 3. It was Young Boys' maiden match against a Danish side and OB's debut experience of Swiss opposition.

• The 22 games between Danish and Swiss clubs in UEFA club competition have ended with eight wins for Superliga teams, three draws and 11 successes for Swiss sides.

Match background
• Yet to win in three UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League group stage home fixtures, a 2-1 loss to Stuttgart on Matchday 2 ended OB's ten game unbeaten continental run at Odense Stadion.

• Having won 1-0 at Fenerbahçe SK in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, Young Boys have lost their subsequent two European away games, conceding seven goals and scoring none in reply.

Team facts
• Young Boys' Hrvoje Bukovski celebrates his 19th birthday on the day after the match.

• This will be OB's 50th game in the UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League, with the previous 49 ending W21 D14 L14.

• OB parted ways with coach Lars Olsen on 14 September, bringing to an end a three-year tenure at the club. They have installed Uffe Pedersen in a caretaker role, the 56-year-old having previously been in charge at OB between 2002 and 2004.

• Young Boys' Sarajevo-born coach Vladimir Petković was a midfielder for FK Sarajevo as well as a number of Swiss clubs. As a coach, he worked his way up from assistant at AC Bellinzona to lead AC Lugano, then Bellinzona before taking charge of Young Boys in 2008.
