BSC Young Boys
BSC Young Boys will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 3-4 Super League triumph vs FC Luzern.
In that game, BSC Young Boys managed 53% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. For BSC Young Boys, the goals were scored by Meschak Elia (14', 59') and Jordy Siebatcheu (68', 93'). At the other end, FC Luzern got 12 shots at goal with 6 on target. Pascal Schürpf (27', 52') and Ibrahima Ndiaye (41') scored for FC Luzern.
Matches with BSC Young Boys have proved to be absorbing encounters lately with plenty of scoring anticipated. Over their past half dozen clashes alone, a total of 24 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 4 goals per game) with 17 of those being chalked up by Young Boys. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, however.
Slovan Bratislava will go into the encounter after a 1-4 Super Liga win over Tatran Liptovský Mikuláš in their previous fixture.
A run of reliable displays from the Slovan Bratislava defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their past 6 outings combined. In that period, their forwards have scored 13.
Team News: BSC Young Boys
Nico Maier (Muscle Injury), Fabian Lustenberger (Achilles tendon rupture), Joël Monteiro (Unknown Injury) and Jean-Pierre Nsame (Achilles tendon rupture) are unavailable for Young Boys gaffer David Wagner.
Team News: Slovan Bratislava
Slovan manager Vladimír Weiss has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Lucas Lovat (Unknown Injury), Jurij Medvedev (Concussion) and Dávid Holman (Cruciate Ligament Injury) are not ready for selection.
We’re inclined to think that BSC Young Boys will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the other end, Slovan Bratislava will be up against it to find the back of the net but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for BSC Young Boys when all’s said and done.
