Young Boys – Statistics & Current Form
The reigning champion will defend his title. A prognosis that is not difficult if you look at the season so far in mind. A mile-long gap to second place, garnished with the best offense and defensive – in short, Bern is currently the measure of things in Swiss football. The excursion to the Champions League was not very successful, as the Kickers of the Aare had to take the last place in their group, but even on the European stage has the 12-fold champion set a few exclamation points.
For example, the last home game last December ended against Juventus with a 2-1 victory. Remarkable was the draw against Valencia. As a group last but the qualification for the Europa League was missed, which is why the concentration can now be placed completely on the Super League. A fact that the rest of the league will certainly be concerned about.
Berne is already a power in Wankdorf. Eight wins from nine home games includes the impressive balance. Only against FC Luzern lost the master in early October of last year his home game. Especially the offensive usually makes short work of the guest teams. 29 goals in nine matches make for an impressive cut of 3.2 goals per match. In five of the nine home games scored the Elf of coach Gerry Seoane at least three goals and the highest victory fell 7-1 against FC Basel. A match that more than made clear the change of guards in Swiss football.
In preparation for the second half, the yellow-blacks scored again many hits; For example, FC Wil were beaten 4: 2 and FC Schaffhausen 3-0. But Kevin Mbabu can not play in the defense. The Swiss international suffered a knee injury a few days ago. The Young Boys are against Xamax Neuchatel for a tip on the victory of the clear favorite.

Xamax Neuchatel – Statistics & Current Form
The triple champion, most recently in 1988, has had turbulent years in which, following the bankruptcy of 2012, the restart took place in the 2nd league inter, the country’s fifth division. Since this season, the traditional club is back in the House of Lords, but may return is shorter than planned. Currently, the team of coach Michel Decastel is in last place and would have relegated. The reason for the poor results is a squad that is individually relatively weak and has little depth. There is not much reason for hope, because the earnings crisis has been going on for a very long time. So Xamax has remained without victory for eleven competitive matches – five defeats and six draws.
Also away only succeeded a threesome, which also lies a long time ago, since he was on the first match day in the guest appearance at Lucerne. A victory, which certainly came about through the then prevailing euphoria over the rise. With already 19 goals in nine away games the Neuenburger put together with the FC Basel also the worst defensive in the foreign. Recently, however, there was at least a slight uptrend, as four of the recent five appearances ended in a draw and the opposition with FC Basel and FC Lucerne was sometimes prominent.
The test games of the western Swiss in the winter break also brought some success. Among other things, the red-blacks achieved victories against the two but only third-rate clubs Stade Nyonnais and Yverdon-Sport FC and the Pimentoneros of Real Murcia CF, which are also home in Spain but also in the third-rate Segunda Division B.
Positive from the point of view of the club is the reinforcement of the squad by Geoffroy Serey Dié. The 34-year-old kicker from the Ivory Coast was loaned by FC Basel, where he won the championship four times. In addition, he played in between in the German Bundesliga at VfB Stuttgart and is part of the Ivorian national team. However, Charles-André Doudin (four goals, four assists) suffered a serious knee injury in the final preparatory match against Yverdon, which not only prevents him from playing in the upcoming duel with the champion but puts him out of action for the coming weeks.
On offense, the hopes are even more on Raphael Nuzzolo, who despite his 35 years, still felt a lot of Torhunger. Last year’s top scorer of the Challenge League has already netted ten times – a record that gives him third place in the scoring. Noteworthy are also his nine assists, which are topped only by the Serb Miralem Sulejmani from the next opponent. Adding up the two values of Nuzzolo, results in a rate of about 73 percent in terms of participation in all previous hits of Neuchatel!
Expected list of Xamax Neuchatel:
Walthert – Gomes – Sejmenovic – Santana – Kamber – Serey The – Pimples – Veloso – di Nardo – Ademi – Nuzzolo
