On Saturday, starting with 19:30, the Young Boys – FC Basel match, the derby of the Swiss championship, will be played. The confrontation will take place on “Wankdorf” in the capital of the “Land of the Cantons”.
Despite the fact that she is also involved in the Europa League groups, the team prepared by Seoane is going through an excellent period. She registered 3 victories and 3 draws in the first 3 stages, the 12 points placing her on the second position, tied with the leader Lugano. However, the most important aspect that we must emphasize regarding Young Boys is represented by the fact that she scored only 2 goals in the championship, the defense being at an impressive level!
On the other hand, FC Basel is in a continuous dive for 2-3 seasons. The “red-blues” take the 6th place, with only 7 points. First of all, the “problems” of Sofrza’s students come from the away games, where Basel was defeated by teams such as Servette Geneva (0-1) or FC Zurich (0-1)! In search of the best selections, we will take into account first of all the current shape of the two teams, but also the consistency of the group. We also emphasize that the competitive break came as best it could for the hosts, who were able to rest their tired players after the European matches.
FC Basel, without victory over “Wankdorf” in the last 9 matches;
Young Boys, no home defeat in the 2019 championship;
“Yellow-English”, 10 out of 12 points obtained at home in this championship.
PREDICTION: Young Boys to win @ 1,60
