Young Boys will welcome Servette to Stadion Wankdorf for a Swiss Super League matchday 16 fixture on Sunday.

The home side are coming into the game on the back of a routine 2-0 victory over Crvena Zvezda in the UEFA Champions League at the same venue. They went ahead through Kosta Nedeljokovic's eighth-minute own goal, while Lewin Blum doubled their lead in the 29th minute.

Servette, meanwhile, shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at home to AS Roma in the UEFA Europa League. Romelu Lukaku put the Italians ahead in the 21st minute, but Chris Bedia drew the game level six minutes into the second half.

Les Grenats will turn their focus back to the domestic scene where their last game saw them claim a routine 2-0 home win over Grasshoppers. Young Boys' last league game came in a 3-1 defeat away to FC Zurich.

The loss saw them drop to second spot in the table on 28 points, joint-level with third-placed Servette.

Young Boys vs Servette Prediction

Young Boys guaranteed springtime continental football with their midweek victory. Raphael Wicky's side lost top spot in the table with their defeat to Zurich last weekend and will want to get back to winning ways here.

It will not come easy though, as Servette have been impressive across the last few months and are also fresh off securing Conference League football next year.

The game is likely to be keenly contested but we are tipping Young Boys to narrowly edge the match.
