Young Boys regained the championship title at the end of last season, which they lost for a year. There was no intrigue in the fight for the top spot, as they were 16 points ahead of their nearest pursuer and also won the National Cup, confirming their tremendous dominance at the national level. The current Swiss league campaign has not started without problems for the Black and Yellows, as in five games, they have allowed two draws and three wins, so they are still in second place. But in Champions League qualifying, the team played exceptionally well, beating Maccabi Haifa 3:0 on aggregate in two games.
Leipzig is still a young team celebrating its 15th anniversary next year. On this occasion, the Bulls would like to perform well, competing for the next trophies for the club's collection, which has accumulated three so far pieces: in 2022 and 2023, they won the German Cup, and a month earlier they won the Super Cup of the country, beating Bayern Munich 3:0. The team probably had too much faith in themselves after that win and lost to Bayer Leverkusen 2:3 in the first round of the Bundesliga, but they beat Stuttgart, Union, and Augsburg by a combined goal difference of 11:1 to jump to third in the standings.

Young Boys are in great form, having not lost since May, and in the last five matches, they haven't conceded a single goal. Still, it's important to realize that Winterthur, Xamax, and even Maccabi Haifa are a different level of opponents than Leipzig, who will now face them. Of course, the Bulls are unqualified favorites for the upcoming meeting. In the Bundesliga, Marco Rosé's men have won their last three games in a row by a combined score of 11:1, and shortly before that, they beat Bayern Munich 3:0 in the Supercup.
Young Boys recently began to play exclusively pragmatically, because of which they score a little and stopped conceding at all. It would be naive for the Swiss to expect a dry run against Leipzig, so they will have to look for chances in attack, which increases the likelihood of a successful outcome. In the previous eight meetings, the Bulls scored 32 goals (4.00 average per game), which is a great indicator, so now we expect them to be solidly productive in attack.
