Young Boys – St. Gallen betting tip, prediction & odds 16.05.2024

Super League, Thursday, 16.05.2024

Without top striker Joel Monteiro, Young Boys Bern will be looking to clinch the Swiss Super League title on Thursday. The league leaders host St. Gallen. The odds already suggest that it won’t be a walk in the park.

Last weekend, Young Boys missed their first match point, losing 1-0 to their first direct rivals. In my Young Boys St. Gallen betting tip, I expect a stronger performance from the hosts and choose the “Bern to win one half” odds from Bet-at-home:

Will the 16-time Swiss champions get shaky knees again? There could have been a big champions’ party in front of the home crowd on Saturday, but Lugano managed to win on the road to pull within six points.

However, FC are already too far behind with three games left and a significantly worse goal difference that can no longer be equalized. It is therefore clear: If Bern win another match or draw three times, the decision will be made

Although the celebrations could be postponed in the event of a win against St. Gallen (2.18), which is not considered all that likely, if Lugano were to keep their purely mathematical chances alive against Winterthur in the parallel match.

St. Gallen (2.90) travel to Bern as slight underdogs. After all, the men in green and white have been unbeaten for eight games, winning three of their last four matches. The draw is clearly the least likely outcome. Happybet and Co. are offering odds of around 4.00 for this one.

69 league goals have been scored by Young Boys so far, the club has the best offense and at the same time the strongest defense in the league with only 33 goals conceded. Portugal’s Monteiro is the top scorer with twelve goals, but is out again this time due to ligament problems, as he was against Lugano.

The result: Bern failed to score for the first time in six games. After the last 0-0 draw against Yverdon, Bern have scored two or more goals against their opponents. The club is particularly hard to beat at home.

In the regular season, Bern won 13 of its 16 games, losing only once in total, all with a dominant goal tally of 44:11! And St. Gallen away from home? Harmless with three wins in 16 matches. St. Gallen qualified for the Championship Group thanks to a strong home record

Due to the relatively small league, which has now been expanded to twelve teams, the teams meet three times in the regular season. After that, the top six teams fight for the title and the European Cup places in another direct duel in the championship round.

The other half duel it out in the relegation round to avoid relegation. However, there is only one direct relegation in the Super League, with the penultimate team having to take the detour via the play-offs against the second-placed team in the Challenge League

Which makes betting in the Swiss league easier in part because more data is available from head-to-head matches in the current season. St. Gallen were lucky enough to play Bern twice at home. Once they won 2:1 and then 2:2.

The fans saw a different picture in the match at the Wankdorf stadium. Bern ensured a clear 3:0 victory. However, St. Gallen have kept up well in all matches so far, creating some top chances, even in the clear defeat

In addition, the results and scoring chances on both sides so far speak for several goals. Over 2.5 goals have been a sure thing in this duel so far. It’s not just this season that the goals have been frequent; ten of the last eleven matches have seen at least three goals.

Betano is known for its top odds in the over-goal area, but only serves up 1.38 odds. The 1.53 is more worthwhile if the goal from both teams is added to the odds

By the way,

Betano is also flexing its muscles with a strong new customer promotion: after registration and verification, you will receive a free bet of 20 euros. No deposit is necessary for this.

In addition, you can dust off a first-class sports betting bonus, the minimum odds requirement for wagering the extra money, which is up to 100 euros, is low at 1.70. Especially as smaller odds can also be combined for total odds of 1.70.

Conclusion: Young Boys Bern are hard to beat at home. Lugano managed the feat, but also snatched a rather fortunate three-goal victory with 5:19 scoring chances. Previously, Bern’s offense was more effective.

The next match against St. Gallen, an opponent that has been a stumbling block for the defending champions this season, at least away from home, will also be played without Monteiro. But even in the absence of the striker, who has contributed twelve league goals, I expect the hosts to score a few goals.

Should Lugano collect fewer points than Bern in the parallel game, the title would also be wrapped up on Thursday. Young Boys have won six home games in a row against St. Gallen, but I prefer to hedge my bets with the following odds. Also because there is still something at stake for the visitors in the battle for the European Cup places.
