BSC Young Boys
BSC Young Boys are hoping to win again after their last result, the 0-1 Super League victory against FC Sion.
BSC Young Boys have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, finding the back of the net in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve claimed a sum of 14 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5.
Their prior results show that BSC Young Boys:
- have not been beaten in the league by St Gallen in their previous 3 games.
- are undefeated in their last 29 home league matches. What a fortress they have created.
St Gallen will go into the meeting following on from a 6-0 Super League win with the eclipse of Neuchatel Xamax FC in their most recent outing.
In a total of 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving St Gallen, three or more goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell is 4.17, with the number of goals averaged by Espen standing at 2.5. Such a pattern might not follow through into this match, however.
Heading into this contest, St Gallen have not won against BSC Young Boys in away games against them for the last 25 league matches. An unbelievably poor away record.

In this game, BSC Young Boys should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
