Luzern vs Young Boys Prediction & Betting tips
The season ended in the Super League on Monday evening. The Young Boys celebrated their 14th national championship, which was already dry, with a home win over the stubborn pursuer St. Gallen. Lucerne, on the other hand, even slipped to sixth place in the final table after a goalless draw against Basel. The lights could only win one of their last eight league games.
Against this background, the odds of bookmakers against Lucerne against Young Boys clearly swing towards the guests, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows. However, it is worth taking a closer look.
After all, the Bernese are not considered untouchable, especially when they are away, which is underlined by two results that influence the prognosis for Lucerne against Young Boys. On the one hand, the yellow-blacks lost the last league game at Lucerne 0-2. On the other hand, the lights kicked the Swiss series champion out of the quarter-finals of the Swiss Cup a year ago. After 90 minutes in the Swissporarena, it was 4-0 for the supposed underdog.
In the end of the season, FC Luzern even played in the qualifying round for the Europa League after a good pre-season, but missed the entry into the group phase against Espanyol Barcelona.
For a long time it looked as if Fabio Celestini’s troops could start an attack on Europe again. In the hot end of the season, however, the lights ran out of steam.
Only one of the last eight league games could win the blue and white. In the end, the final table for the 2019/20 season lacked three points on Servette Geneva in fourth place, which is only enough for Europe if the cup winner is among the best three teams.
Even before the final match day, when there was a tired 0-0 draw against FC Basel, it was clear that there will be no international adventure in the coming season. At least not through league operations, because if you win the Swiss Cup, Lucerne can of course still get the right to start.
The more interesting is the question of whether the lights have saved their energy for the continuation of the 95th edition of the Swiss Cup. Overall, there is little to suggest in the recent results that tip 1 will go up against Young Boys in Lucerne.
However, the blue-whites, who have won the Swiss Cup twice, shocked the Bernese in the quarter-finals a year ago when they ultimately won the Swissporarena 4-0 against the favorites. With ten injuries due to injury, it will be difficult to repeat.
For a long time it looked like the young boys could not profit from the weak season of long-term rivals FC Basel, especially because of the negative results in foreign places. Instead, FC St. Gallen headed the Super League table for ten match days and pushed for the third national championship.
On the home stretch of the season, Gerardo Seoane’s team got back into the curve and secured the title hat-trick. One man was the key to success: Jean-Pierre Nsame, who scored 32 goals in the Super League.
Also because of the 27-year-old, who was heavily courted in Europe, the young boys achieved an incredible sprint in the closely timed weeks in July. Eight of the last nine league games won the yellow-blacks. This included a close 1-0 home win over FC Luzern on July 26th.
Now, however, the competition is once again on the program, with which the 14-time Swiss champion always struggles. The Bernese have not won the Swiss Cup since 1987. They have only reached the final four times since then.
At Lucerne against Young Boys, the odds of bookmakers are now clearly turning out to be the new national champion, whose title celebration on Monday evening after the home win over St. Gallen was moderate. However, the many English weeks did not leave the Bernese without a trace. Gerardo Seoane also has to do without five injured players.
Added to this is the overall not really convincing away record of the yellow-blacks despite the strong final spurt. The Young Boys won only seven of the 18 games in foreign places in the Super League. The last game near Lucerne was also lost 0-2 on February 1, 2020.
