The home team coach Gasperini will be very much happy after being unbeaten in the last five matches. However, with the opponent leading with one point they would have to win to qualify for the round of 16. The draw with Manchester United boosted their confidence but another draw against Young Boys would mean they will fall behind the Yellow Submarine in the table. Meanwhile, their Serie A form will certainly give hope to the Italian fans.

Villarreal, usually a very defensive side will just have to make sure a draw to get a nod in the next stage of the Champions League. The Spanish team won two, drew one and lost two of their five matches in Group F. Unai Emery will have to pick his team up from an ongoing devastating La Liga season. Their loss against Valencia last week will hurt them too.
