Jordan Siebatcheu just helped Young Boys pull off a notable upset vs. Bayer Leverkusen with three goals in the Round of 32 in the UEFA Europa League.
He will next look to carry that run of good form vs. one of the old continent’s most historic clubs.
The draw for the Europa League’s Round of 16 took place on Friday — one day after the previous round was completed — and it saw Siebatcheu and Young Boys paired with Dutch power Ajax. The first leg is set to take place at Amsterdam ArenA in the Netherlands on March 11, and the return fixture will take place on March 18 at the Stade de Suisse.
