Young Boys return from the international break by hosting a familiar foe this weekend, in an unpredictable Basel side on Saturday. Since the 2014-15 campaign, the pair have interchanged positions – finishing first and second – every year before a pandemic-impacted 2019-20 season.

They are Switzerland’s top two sides, positions aside, and that’s why this clash is even more intriguing here. Young Boys hope to continue their impressive record, while Basel can’t afford to lick their wounds for too long after a stuttering start to the campaign across all competitions.

Can either side seize the initiative here, en route to a morale-boosting result? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Young Boys vs Basel Betting Tips

Since being whacked 4-1 by Shakthar Donetsk in last season’s Europa League quarter-finals, Basel have lost five of their eleven matches (all comps, including friendlies).

They scored first but lost at home to CSKA Sofia in their UEL playoff last month, meaning a season without European football. Just before this international break, they lost 1-0 to Zurich.

For context, this is the same Zurich side who’d only won two of their 16 H2H meetings before kick-off. Something needs to change under new head coach Ciriaco Sforza, and quickly. Young Boys might not be scoring for fun this season, but they are earning results without playing particularly well – the archetypal mark of champions.

Their last Super League defeat was, fittingly, a 3-2 away defeat by Basel on July 11. They’ve played 12 league games since then. Juggling their title defence with a difficult Europa League group featuring Roma and Basel’s kryptonite Sofia isn’t easy. But they’ve handled it relatively well and hope to continue that here.

Young Boys vs Basel Correct Score Predictions

Young Boys comfortably lead the H2H (W9, D5, L4) against a Basel side regressing since winning the Super League in 2016-17. Saturday’s visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in three successive meetings, while this fixture has long produced goals galore.

I’m expecting more of the same this weekend too, in a match Young Boys must win to apply pressure on league leaders Lugano (on goals scored).
