Team News: Grasshopper Club Zürich
Dion Kacuri (Ill), Francis Momoh (Knee Surgery) and Guilherme Schettine (Unknown Injury) will not be taking part for Grasshopper Club Zürich gaffer Giorgio Contini.
Team News: BSC Young Boys
BSC Young Boys manager Raphaël Wicky has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Leandro Zbinden (Surgery), Yannick Toure (Unknown Injury), Mohamed Camara (Torn Meniscus) and David von Ballmoos (Unknown Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We envisage that BSC Young Boys have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
Conversely, Grasshopper Club Zürich could well struggle to get goals of their own, although we do see them converting at least once here, too.
Accordingly, we see a 1-3 win for BSC Young Boys by the conclusion of the game.
