St.Gallen – Young Boys

In midweek second from bottom St. Gallen passed to next cup round after extratimes, but tiredness cannot be an excuse for a team that needs points and won only one of last six rounds. In stats, hosts have the worst defence of league with no clean sheets and in their favour, only two times weren’t able to score, one of them against Basel.In team news hosts again without Kempter ( def.10) one of the three most used players in the season and with Stergiou ( def.8) doubtful. Young Boys loose in midweek against Lugano, cup is ended by they remain second in league, while they’ll have CL match in midweek, where they are last in group, so they must divide their forces here. Most important worry for YB is the absence of both first keepers, Faivre ( 2) could return to train but is very unlikely he will play here and Van Balmoos (8) injuried himself at 13° minute in cup. So, should start in goal, after debut in cup from bench, 18 years old keeper Laidani. 19 years old Zbinden is the only other available choice as keeper. Guests remain also without other longterm injuried players def. Hefti ( 6+3 1g) and Zesiger ( 4), last season topscorer Nsame and actual second scorer Kanga ( 3g) is anotehr new miss. Only ten goals suffered but only three clean sheets for guests already in normal conditions, but only in four rounds scored only one or zero goals ( this happened in the only defeat till now). Hosts have an occasion to push for a win, guests cannot permit another defeat after the exit from cup but had also worries with midweek match and both teams have stats and team news that sees their back compromised, i expect many goals here.
