Drawing Young Boys was great news when compared to the alternatives: Auxerre, Braga, Dynamo Kiev, and Sampdoria. All four of those teams compete in leagues much stronger than the Swiss Super League and unlike Young Boys, they all have a little bit of star power.
Last year's great stretch run to finish in fourth place in the league hasn't really stuck with me yet. I've been a Spurs supporter since I was in middle school, so I've seen my fair share of epic disappointments. The expectations of failure have been hammered into me as I explained in a piece for All Things Footy a few months back. Last night before I went to bed, I saw stunning goals by Giampaolo Pazzini and Artem Milievskiy flash before my eyes. I saw Valter Birsa dribbling circles around Corluka. I saw us failing to break down Braga. But even I can't be pessimistic about a tie against Young Boys.
They have nothing particularly dangerous. No one on their team has a wealth of international or European experience. No one on their team has an outstanding goal scoring record. They blew a 13 point lead in the league. They're off to an awful start domestically this season. Even Spurs can't screw this up.
