Team News: BSC Young Boys
Young Boys boss Gerardo Seoane has some current player fitness concerns. Esteban Petignat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Christopher Martins Pereira (Adductor problems), Sandro Lauper (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Marvin Spielmann (Unknown Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
When taking all factors into account, Lugano certainly have the ability to find the back of the net against this BSC Young Boys side, however a single goal possibly won’t quite be enough to give them the result that they want.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 1-2 victory for BSC Young Boys by the conclusion of the game. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
