Over their past six games, a total of 28 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 4.67 goals per game) with 23 of them accredited to BSC Young Boys.

FC Luzern have seen success in front of goal in their most recent fixtures, having scored 8 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Fabio Celestini will no doubt take that as a positive sign, FC Luzern can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same games. Such a pattern might not follow through here, though.
