Young Boys vs Lausanne PREVIEW & PREDICTION 22/04/2018


The 31st round in the Super League is upon us. The Bernese Young Boys receive FC Lausanne at the Stade de Suisse. Thus, the table first on the last of the Super League. Already in August, the people of Vaud were in Bern. At that time they conceded a 3-0 defeat. Also in the game on Sunday, the Lausanne go into the race as a clear outsider. After all, the Young Boys have never been defeated in the second half of the season.

Six games before the end, the Bernese still eleven points clear of FC Basel. This should be the Young Boys this season after 30 years again enough for the championship title. So far, they only received three defeats this season. Two of them occurred in the Bern Derby. The third defeat conceded the Bernese against Lausanne. The match on Lake Geneva in October was decided only in the 91st minute. Zarate – a former Bernese – shot the Lausanne to victory. Both teams need three points in this game. Lausanne are relegation-threatened – the Bernese need to defend points for the championship lead.

Young Boys:

The Bernese Young Boys also greet the table top after 30 rounds played. The eleven point advantage should be enough, so that the Young Boys are still at the end of the season to colonel. The yellow-black and the entire city of Bern would be to wish, after all, the BSC Young Boys won over 30 years ago a title! In the federal city are more and more yellow-black flags and jerseys to see. The number of spectators is also rising steadily. In the last home game against FC Zurich over 25,000 spectators were in the Stade de Suisse. Also this Sunday, many Bernese will be in Wankdorf. Also in the cup it runs the Young Boys. In the years before, they always failed early – especially teams from deeper leagues bothered the Bernern. This year, YB shows its constancy.

Only in the semi-final was with FC Basel a match against opponents. Nevertheless, the yellow-blacks also secured a safe victory in this game. Already in the first half Hoarau worked for the Bernese. Although this goal was withdrawn due to an offside position, the Bernese were not worried and met in the second half still in the Basel goal. The Frenchman is the high flyer of this second round. He scored eleven goals in the twelve games. In addition to Guillame Hoarau three more top scorers are in the squad of Adi Hütter. Miralem Sulejmani also scored eleven goals and Jean Pierre Nsame scored the same number of goals. Roger Assale is currently the top scorer in the league with his 12 goals. This offensive power can also be seen by looking at the table. The Berner Young Boys are the best offensive with 71 goals scored. The defense is strong, only 32 goals conceded the defense. The signs are thus clearly on championship titles – still have six games to complete.


The Vaud countries are currently in a relegation battle. Never before has the final phase of the Super League in the table cellar been as exciting as this year. Five more teams are involved. Lausanne has a very bad role to play here. FC Lausanne is currently on the last place in the table. However, they have the same number of points in the account as the second last of the table. The rest of the Vaud countries have a tough time, especially the next three games are crucial for the outcome of the season. This weekend, the Berne Young Boys face – only by a miracle, the Lausanne could kidnap a point from the federal city. The next two games Lausanne denies against both Zurich teams. First they receive the Grasshoppers at home. The winner of this game could escape decisively from the table cellar. A week later, the Vaud countries travel to Zurich to compete with FC Zurich. However, the League’s survival is mainly in the games against Thun and Lugano. These two teams are themselves in the middle of relegation battle. Since only one team can relegate to the Challenge League in the Super League, the points in these direct matches are particularly important.
The yield in the Stade de Suisse against the Young Boys is not convincing. Most recently, the western Swiss won a match in 2012 in Bern. I am convinced that they will lose the match on Sunday against the Bernese. After all, you get back in successful bets on the Lausanne FC 15 times the stake back.

PREDICTION: Over 3.5 goals @ 1.72
