Getafe want revenge against Young Boys

Out of the running for the round of 32, Getafe CF will look to cling on to third place in Group H and avenge a 2-0 Matchday 2 loss to BSC Young Boys, with the Swiss side certain of finishing second.

Already out of the running for the UEFA Europa League round of 32, Getafe CF will look to cling on to third place in Group H and avenge a 2-0 Matchday 2 defeat by BSC Young Boys, with the Swiss side certain of finishing second.

• Young Boys trail section leaders VfB Stuttgart by three points, but cannot catch the German side due to their inferior head-to-head record. Getafe are level on points with Odense BK but have a superior head-to-head record, and will hold on to third place provided they do not get a worse result against Young Boys than the Danish side manage at Stuttgart.

Previous meetings
• Two goals from David Degen earned Young Boys a 2-0 win when the sides met for the first time on Matchday 2. It was Getafe's first meeting with a Swiss side.

• Young Boys' record in five games against Spanish opposition reads W3 D0 L2 (W1 D0 L1 in Spain). Getafe's near neighbours Real Madrid CF lost 1-0 in Berne in the 1986/87 European Champion Clubs' Cup, but recovered to win the second leg 5-0, with Getafe coach Míchel featuring in both legs.

Match background
• Young Boys are featuring in the group stage of a UEFA club competition for the first time.

• Getafe's 3-0 loss to Stuttgart on Matchday 4 was their worst ever result at home in UEFA club competition.

• Young Boys have conceded nine times and failed to register in their last three European away fixtures.

Team facts
• One of the five locally born players at the heart of Madrid's successful 1980s and 1990s sides – dubbed the Quinta del Buitre (the Vulture's Cohort, in honour of their leader Emilio Butragueño) – Míchel won six Spanish titles and two UEFA Cups as a Madrid player. Initially a TV pundit after retirement, Míchel went into coaching with Rayo Vallecano, joining Getafe in April 2009 after a spell with Real Madrid's academy.

• 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.
