Young Boys continue their hunt for a place in the Conference League as they visit the Cornaredo Stadium to face FC Lugano on Saturday.

The hosts, meanwhile, head into the game on a five-game winless run in the Swiss Super League and will be looking to end this dry spell.

FC Lugano failed to find their feet last Saturday as they could only salvage a 1-1 draw with Grasshopper Zurich on home turf.

They have now failed to taste victory in any of their last five league outings, picking up two draws and losing three since March’s 3-1 win over Lausanne-Sport.

With 47 points from 32 games, Lugano are currently fifth in the Swiss Super League table, level on points with fourth-placed St. Gallen.

Young Boys, on the other hand, made it two wins from two last time out as they edged out FC Sion 2-1 away from home.

This followed a 3-1 victory over Servette FC on April 23 which saw their seven-game winless run come to an end.

Young Boys are currently third in the league standings, occupying the final Conference League qualification spot after picking up 53 points from 32 games.

Young Boys appear to have hit their stride once again, claiming two consecutive victories since going seven without a win. They have won each of their last three games against Lugano and we predict they will extend this run and come away with all three points against the floundering hosts.
