Grasshoppers - LLLDL
After losing their previous Super League match against Zurich by a score of 2-1, Grasshoppers will be looking to get back on track here in this contest. In that particular encounter, Bledian Krasniqi scored for Zurich in the 37th minute and Antonio Marchesano in the 73rd minute. However, thanks to an own goal scored by Selmin Hoda in the 90th minute of that game, the Grasshoppers were able to get one back and win the match. In recent matches, Grasshoppers have not had many opportunities to defend their position for the full three quarters of an hour. In fact, Grasshoppers' defense has been penetrated in 5 of their last 6 matches, which has resulted in a total of 9 goals being conceded. The Grasshoppers had not been victorious in either of their last two league matches played at home before this matchup.
Young Boys - WWLWL
Young Boys will be coming into this match with the intention of turning things around after suffering a defeat in their previous Super League tournament match against St. Gallen. During that match, Young Boys held 59% of the possession and had 11 shots on goal, with only 2 of those shots finding the target. Meschak Elia put the ball in the back of the net for Young Boys in the 69th minute. With 21 shots on goal, St. Gallen only managed to get 6 of them on target. St. Gallen got their first goal in the 72nd minute from Fabian Schubert, and their second goal came from Mihailo Stevanovic in the 75th minute. Because of a string of very strong performances by their defense, Young Boys have only conceded four goals in their last six matches combined. During the same time frame, their forwards have been able to score 10 goals for themselves.

Expert Betting Tips
The two teams are coming off a loss on the road, and heading into this one, they will hope to get back to winning ways. However, Young Boys are the better side here, as the performances of Grasshoppers lately have been so poor. In addition, while Young Boys won the last time they faced off against Young Boys at home, I do not see the visiting side giving in easily, so I expect goals from both sides here.
