If they win against the Slovaks of Slovan Bratislava in the second qualifying round of the Champions League, the Young Boys would face the Lincoln Red Imps of Gibraltar or the Romanians of Cluj in the next round in early August.
This is the verdict from the draw for the European Cups in Nyon. There is little doubt that the Romanian champion will easily pass his shoulder against the Gibraltar team.
The memory of December
If this is the case, YB would thus find an opponent against whom he had fought a tough battle last December in the group match (day 6) of the Europa League, to advance to the round of 16.
In the 90th, the Young Boys were led at home 1-0 by Cluj, a result which would have eliminated them. But they were able to equalize thanks to an extremely questionable penalty in stoppage time, before winning 2-1 and advancing to the round of 16.
