Young Boys, Swiss champions since last week thanks to their 5-1 success against Lucerne which assured them of no longer being joined at the top of the standings, is not satisfied. In St. Gallen, the Bernese won 2-0 to celebrate their 19th success of the season.

At home, Peter Zeidler’s men got into the game well, getting a big chance in the 1st minute thanks to a very nice shot from Witzig on the edge of 20 meters, but Zesiger, vigilant, avoided YB to concede the opening of the entry score.

It was then Geubbels in the 12th who left in a lightning counter, unfortunately his shot, too crossed, passed right next to the Bernese cage. In the 25th, it was again Witzig who stood out by landing a powerful shot that Racioppi intercepted, not without difficulty.

In a balanced match, it was finally on the penalty spot that the situation was untied. In the 53rd, Dajaku, guilty of a handball in the box, gave Itten the chance to score his 19th Super League goal of the season. Finally, Nsame put YB away for good thanks to an unstoppable header from a corner in the 83rd minute.

St. Gallen no longer knows how to win

With this 10th consecutive game without a win in the Super League, Saint-Gall remains in a delicate position 4 days from the end of the championship, since it has only 6 points ahead of the last place occupied by Sion.

On the contrary, Young Boys remain alone in the world with a 21-point lead over second-placed Lugano, who are going to face third-placed Lucerne on Sunday. For her part, Servette will go to Letzigrund to face Grasshopper.
