Grasshoppers have failed to score away against each of the current top four this season. When they visited this venue earlier in the campaign, they lost 2-0. On that occasion, they posted a measly total of 0.47 expected goals for.
From a betting point of view, this is anything but a fixture to get excited about. The best option appears to be ‘Young Boys to Win to Nil’. The hosts, who’ve surrendered an average of just 0.8 expected goals at home this season, have more than enough quality to come out on top without enduring any problems defensive problems.
This is a cool team that shows interesting football even in the Champions League. Last weekend, Basel's main rival was defeated. Ahead of the match with Juventus, but he does not solve anything. The team will play football tomorrow and in the middle of the week.
- Young Boys have won 16 of their last 18 matches. - Young Boys have scored at least 2 goals in 17 of their last 18 matches. - Young Boys have won 6 of their last 7 home matches against FC Thun.
15 matches in and Basel will be very disappointed with how the season has gone so far. They currently sit in 2nd position, which doesn’t sound too bad, but they’re a massive 16 points behind Sunday’s opponents. A lack of defensive solidity is why Sunday’s hosts have been unable to keep pace with their title rivals. 15 league matches in and Basel are still searching for their first clean sheet. Basel have been poor this season, but it must be said that Young Boys have impressed. The league leaders have barely put a foot wrong, as they’ve won 13 of their 15 matches, scoring 47 goals and conceding just 16 in the process. YB their extra quality at both ends of the pitch, the visitors can put Basel in their place for the second time this season.
