Thun vs Young Boys Prediction & Betting tips
The 30th round is in the Super League. Once the games take place during the week. In this article we deal with the Bernese Derby. For the fourth time this season, FC Thun will face the Bernese Young Boys. The outsider won two games very clearly, thus adding two of their three defeats to the league leaders. Basically, both teams are considered Bernese teams, but Thun is geographically only in the canton of Bern and forms the gateway to the Bernese Oberland. The Young Boys, on the other hand, are located in the federal city of Switzerland, more precisely in Wankdorf Quartier.
The former Arbeiterquartier is currently changing to the industrial and office area of Bern. The two cities separate only about 25 kilometers. The Young Boys will have survived this route in about 20 minutes. On the way back the yellow-blacks will have three points in their luggage. This way back would also be possible on the Aare, in summer numerous city-Berner daily – equipped with a rubber boat – travel to Thun to cover the return journey within three hours with the Böötli and relax. YB has not suffered a defeat in the second half of the season. Also in this game against Thun this will not change. After all, the Bernese can get back the championship trophy after more than 30 years.
The FC Thun fights each season for relegation. Also in this season, the Oberländer are in the table cellar. On the 25th matchday the history of the Thuner found its nadir. In the direct duel against the bottom club FC Thun conceded in Wallis a 7: 2 (!) Defeat. With this swatter the Berner slip on the last place in the table. Since then much has changed in tuna. In the last four games, the Bernese Oberlanders took eight points. With that they distanced themselves from the relegation place. Especially in the games against Lucerne and GC convinced the Thuner. They each brought a victory. It was also surprising that they conceded only one goal in the last four games. With 54 goals against FC Thun actually represents the worst defensive in the league. But if the Oberlanders are safe in the defense, they score points! Even in the direct duels against the cantonal rivals, the Thuner only scored points from a secure defensive. The first meeting took place in Bern in August.
The Oberlanders secured themselves at the yellow-blacks a 0: 4 victory. Also the second duel of the Berner won the footballers from the lake. Thus, the Thuner added the BSC Young Boys two of their three seasonal defeats. In the match of Wednesday, this trend will not continue. After all, the Thuner lost the duel of February. After 30 minutes, the Oberlanders were back with 2: 0. In general, the tuners in this game can even enjoy a point. Rather, I assume that only goals from the away team can be seen in the Stockhorn Arena, although with Marvin Spielmann is a real scorer in the ranks of the Oberländer. The 22-year-old Swiss is currently in third place in the league’s top scorer list and is the only non-YB player in the top five. The Aarauer native will probably join another club next season.
The Bernese Young Boys are currently at the top of the table with 68 points earned in 29 games. The lead on FC Basel is currently 13 points. In the remaining nine games everything can happen, but the Berner show their consistency this season. Only three games have lost the yellow-black. None of them against FC Basel! Also in the game last Sunday convinced the Bernese. Against the weak FC Zurich, the Young Boys secured a safe 1-0 victory. The offensive in particular puts the Stade des Suisse in ecstasy. With 72 goals scored, YB is by far the league’s best offensive. Therefore, it is not surprising that four of the top five goalscorers in the Super League wear the yellow and black shirt. Roger Assale and Guillaume Hoarau are currently dueling for the top scorer.
The Ivorian has scored twelve goals, the experienced Frenchman, however, only eleven. However, the shape of Hoarau is outstanding. The strong forward has scored his eleven goals all in the second half of the season! But he convinced more with his new hairstyle against FC Zurich. He has painted his hair in the colors of his team. But also Sulejmani and Nsame are in a good mood. The two have already recorded 21 hits. This shows what is waiting for FC Thun. Most recently, the Bernese scored twice per game – except against FC Zurich. In the match against the Grasshoppers in December (!) The BSC Young Boys scored only one goal before! I also expect many goals from the Young Boys in the match against FC Thun.
In addition to the championship, the captains are represented in the cup competition. The Young Boys have qualified for the cup finals for the first time in years. In the years before, they always eliminated in the first rounds against underdogs. Thus, the constancy is also noticeable in the cup. In the semifinals the Bernese eliminated FC Basel in the style of a top team. In the final at the Stade de Suisse – like last weekend – FC Zurich is waiting. This will not be a self-starter, but the YB fans can imagine chances for the double.
