Match background Only this chapter

With a place in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 on the line, Bayer Leverkusen and Young Boys meet again in north-west Germany a week after a remarkable first leg in Berne that the Swiss side eventually won 4-3 after the visitors had clawed back a three-goal deficit.

• Leverkusen were the group stage's top scorers with 21 goals as they won Group C, completing their campaign with a 4-0 home win against fellow qualifiers Slavia Praha. Young Boys, despite losing both games to Roma, finished as runners-up to the Italian side in Group A, clinching their place with a 2-1 home win against CFR Cluj on Matchday 6.

Previous meetings
• The clubs' first meeting in UEFA competition provided a riveting contest. The runaway Swiss Super League leaders raced into a 3-0 half-time lead with goals from Christian Fassnacht, Jordan Siebatcheu and Meschack Elia, but by midway through the second period Leverkusen had pulled it back to 3-3 thanks to a double from Czech international Patrik Schick and substitute Moussa Diaby. The last word, though, went to Siebatcheu, who crowned his first European start of the season with Young Boys' 89th-minute winner.

• Leverkusen have won both of their previous two home games against Swiss sides, most recently overcoming FC Zürich 1-0 with a Tin Jedvaj goal in the 2018/19 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• Despite the first-leg victory YB have won just three of their 14 matches against German opposition (D5 L6) and have lost all four of their two-legged knockout ties against Bundesliga sides, most recently going down 9-2 on aggregate to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League play-offs (1-3 h, 1-6 a). They have never won on German soil in six attempts, having drawn their first three matches there and lost the three most recent.

Form guide
Leverkusen
• Fifth place in the 2019/20 Bundesliga earned Leverkusen a return to the UEFA Europa League, where they reached the quarter-finals last season after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group. They won both legs against Porto in the round of 32 (2-1 h, 3-1 a) and Rangers in the round of 16 (3-1 a, 1-0 h) before losing their last-eight encounter 2-1 to Internazionale in nearby Düsseldorf. They also reached the final of last season's DFB-Pokal, losing 4-2 to Bayern München.

• This season Peter Bosz's side kicked off their European campaign in the UEFA Europa League group stage and they made it four qualifications out of four by topping Group C with 15 points, the only blemish a 1-0 defeat at Slavia on Matchday 2 in which Karim Bellarabi was sent off in the first half. That 4-0 win against the Czech side on Matchday 6 clinched first place, following high-scoring doubles over Hapoel Beer-Sheva (4-2 a, 4-1 h) and Nice (6-2 h, 3-2 a). Leverkusen's final tally of 21 goals was just one short of Napoli's UEFA Europa League group stage record.

• Leverkusen's record in five previous UEFA Europa League round of 32 ties is W3 L2 and has developed a pattern that they will want to break this term. They won the first, against Metalist Kharkiv in 2010/11 (4-0 a, 2-0 h), lost the second, against Benfica in 2012/13 (0-1 h, 1-2 a), won the third, against Sporting CP in 2015/16  (1-0 a, 3-1 h), lost the fourth, against Krasnodar in 2018/19 (0-0 a, 1-1 h), and won the fifth, against Porto last season.

• The Werkself's overall home record in the UEFA Europa League, play-offs included, is W14 D5 L2, with no defeats in the last 11 matches (W8 D3), victories in each of the last five, and 14 goals inflicted on the visitors in this season's group stage.

• Leverkusen have won four of the seven UEFA ties in which they lost the first leg away, most famously in the first instance when they went down 3-0 at Espanyol in the first leg of the 1987/88 UEFA Cup final, only to win by the same scoreline in Germany before taking the trophy on penalties. Their other three aggregate wins have come on the only occasions when they have lost the first leg by a one-goal margin, most recently in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League play-off against Lazio (0-1 a, 3-0 h).

Young Boys
• Champions of Switzerland for the third season running in 2019/20, and the 14th time in all, Young Boys lost last season's UEFA Champions League play-off on away goals to Crvena zvezda but reached the UEFA Europa League group stage, where they finished third in a section containing Porto, Rangers and Feyenoord.

• YB missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification again this season, Gerardo Seoane's side losing 3-0 at Midtjylland in the third qualifying round after winning their opening tie 3-1 at home to KÍ Klaksvík. However, they beat Tirana 3-0 at the Stadion Wankdorf in the UEFA Europa League play-offs to reach the competition's group stage for the seventh time, and further progress ensued despite losses at home (1-2) and away (1-3) to Roma as they beat CSKA-Sofia twice (3-0 h, 1-0 a) and took four points off CFR.

• The Swiss side have lost both of their previous two ties in the UEFA Europa League round of 32, going down to Zenit in 2010/11 (2-1 h, 1-3 a) and Everton in 2014/15 (1-4 h, 1-3 a).

• The Berne club's win in Sofia on Matchday 4 is one of only two they have managed in their last 25 European away games (D8 L15), their record on the road in the UEFA Europa League proper now standing at W3 D8 L12. Young Boys have scored one goal in each of their last seven UEFA Europa League away games.

• There have been nine previous UEFA ties in which Young Boys won the first leg at home. They were eliminated on four of the first five occasions, all after having one-goal leads overturned, the last of them against Zenit in the 2010/11 round of 32, but have won the last four such ties, most recently eliminating Debrecen from the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League play-offs (3-1 h, 0-0 a).

Links and trivia
• This is Bosz's 50th European game as a head coach.

• Young Boys midfielder Gianluca Gaudino is German – the son of ex-Germany international Maurizio Gaudino – and began his professional career at Bayern München, making eight Bundesliga appearances for the club in 2014/15.

• YB skipper Fabian Lustenberger joined the club in 2019 after 12 years in Germany with Hertha BSC, for whom he made 208 Bundesliga appearances.

• Lustenberger’s final appearance for Hertha before leaving to join Young Boys was a 1-5 home defeat by Leverkusen on 18 May 2019 in which Lucas Alario scored a hat-trick.

• Leverkusen's Mitchell Weiser is a former team-mate of both Gaudino at Bayern (2014/15) and Lustenberger at Hertha (2015–18).

• Two other Young Boys players also have experience of German football – Ulisses Garcia (Werder Bremen 2015–18, Nürnberg 2017/18 loan) and Vincent Sierro (Freiburg 2017/18).

• Leverkusen's Aleksandar Dragović played for YB's domestic rivals Basel from February 2011 to July 2013, winning the Swiss Super League in each of his three seasons plus the Swiss Cup in 2011/12. He also helped the club to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League in 2012/13.

• Young Boys have scored at least once in all of their last 16 UEFA Europa League games, play-offs included. The last time they failed to find the net was on Matchday 4 of the 2017/18 season when they lost 0-1 at home to Dynamo Kyiv.

• The Berne club are now the highest-scoring Swiss side in the UEFA Europa League, group stage to final, with 77 goals – three more than Basel.

• Leverkusen are one of six former UEFA Cup winners in this season's round of 32 – along with Ajax, Napoli, PSV Eindhoven, Shakhtar Donetsk and Tottenham Hotspur.
