Draw

FC Basel have not been in great form this season. Young boys might have started the season on a very positive note with two wins and a draw from the three matches, but they have consistently struggled at the St. Jakob-Park in the past. The last victory on this ground for the Young Boys came in 2020. The last three meetings between the two clubs at St. Jakob-Park has been a stalemate.

Total goals under 2.5

Basel have really struggled in front of goal so far this season after only managing two goals in the opening two rounds. Even though it has been a different story with Young Boys, who have averaged close to 2.5 goals per match, the majority of fixtures between these two clubs at the St. Jakob-Park has been very close.

Both teams to score – yes

The close nature of this contest is clearly visible from the string of draws. Even when there has been a victory for either team, the winning margin has not been by more than two goals. The same trend is expected to play out in this match as well.

Basel vs Young Boys: Swiss Super League Preview and Team News

Basel

FC Basel are standing on the brink of an exit from the European games after the first leg defeat against Brondby. This is likely to force manager Alex Frei and the players to start thinking about the upcoming second leg at home even with the game against early table leaders this weekend. Basel are missing players like Taulant Xhaka, Emmanuel Essiam, Anton Kade, Jean-Kévin Augustin, Hugo Vogel, and Kaly Sene.

Young Boys

Young Boys might have made a spectacular start to the season, but the team are yet to become convincing when it comes to away matches. The big wins over Zurich and Sion have also raised expectations surrounding the club. Fabian Lustenberger, Filip Ugrinic, Sandro Lauper, Leandro Zbinden, Kevin Rüegg, Christian Fassnacht, Cheikh Niasse, and Ulisses Garcia are unavailable due to injuries.
