The Swiss Super League provides us with further action this Sunday as we take a look ahead to the clash between Young Boys and Lugano as the betting tips continue at the STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern.

Young Boys Prediction – Can Young Boys gain first home win?

The hosts actually opened their account on home turf at their STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern with a 1-1 draw with Servette on the opening day of the season.

Young Boys then followed that up with a 1-0 win away from home at Neuchatel-Xamax to hand Sunday’s hosts 4 points from their opening two matches of the new domestic season.

They’ll no doubt be keen to record back-to-back wins this Sunday when they return to their more familiar surroundings, which could lift them to the top of the Super League.

Overall form in the Swiss top flight has been pretty steady and consistent for Young Boys who have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches overall.

It was this model of consistency that was the catalyst behind claiming another Super League title at the end of last season.

A significant 20-point margin separated them from runners-up, Basel, which resulted in Young Boys earning a place in the Champions League qualifiers.

They’ve made themselves extremely hard to beat at home too as Young Boys have won 11 of their last 13 matches at home in the Super League.

Lugano Prediction – Can Lugano close gap on the elite clubs?

A 3rd place finish in any domestic league usually means that the team in question has pushed the top two clubs all the way but narrowly missed out on higher honours.

However, in Lugano’s case, this is way off the mark as they finished a massive 45 points adrift of the title winners, Young Boys, at the end of last season.

With 2nd placed Basel finishing 20 points off the pace of Young Boys, it’s clear to see how complete Young Boys’s dominance was over the rest of the competition last term.

Nevertheless, Lugano’s successful season and their efforts rewarded them with a place in the Europa League this season.

The majority of Lugano’s success last season was built upon a reasonable record on home turf at their Stadio di Cornaredo, where they won 6 of their 10 wins last season.

After losing 5 of 7 matches away from home from August to end of November, Lugano’s fortunes changed on the road significantly.

They finished the season with a 10-match unbeaten run on their travels and continued that momentum into this season with a resounding 4-0 win away at Zurich.


Key-Facts – Young Boys v Lugano

  • Young Boys have won 11 of their last 13 matches at home in the Super League
  • Lugano finished last season with a 10-match unbeaten run away from home
  • Young Boys have won 7 of the last 8 encounters against Lugano


Betting Tips Verdict

Lugano have improved away from home, but I can’t see them getting a result at Young Boys here.
