Seals St. Gallen second place?
Will the coming Friday be the day of decisions in the Swiss Super League? In terms of racing for the championship, the question listed above will most likely be answered with “yes”.
Two matchdays before the end, the Young Boys Bern have a five point lead over FC St. Gallen and also have a much better goal difference. Only if the yellow-blacks lose their away game in Sion, the Espen should continue to calculate chances of winning the sensational title. The second requirement is, of course, that a prediction of the home win pays off between St. Gallen and Neuchatel Xamax.
At least there are few doubts as the guests from Neuchâtel are currently probably the most pleasant opponent in the Super League. Since last weekend, the red-blacks have been relegated to the lower house. In addition, the taillight has only celebrated a single three in the past ten matches. It’s no wonder that before the St. Gallen duel against Neuchatel Xamax, the odds of the best bookmakers clearly turn towards the home side.
Although the green-whites ran out of breath recently, there is much to suggest that the oldest football club in Switzerland will do its own homework. It would then no longer be up to them whether the surprise team of the current season deserves a real final for the title on the last match day at the Young Boys.
St. Gallen – Statistics & current form
Regardless of whether St. Gallen can still intercept the Young Boys from Bern on the last two matchdays, those responsible will draw an extremely positive conclusion in the traditional analysis after the season. In the summer of 2019, the team of coach Peter Zeidler would not have expected such a good performance in the Swiss upper house.
In the meantime, the green-whites even had a small cushion in second place, which has been used up in the past few weeks. Because only two of the youngest six matches in the Super League could be made victorious, St. Gallen fell behind the defending champions in the classification and now has two mathematical chances to win the championship. In order to earn a real final on Monday in the federal capital, a win of one’s own is just as necessary as a defeat of the direct competitor in Sion.
Will St. Gallen fix the runner-up championship on Friday?
After the re-start, the green-whites have won three of their five home games so far, scoring a total of nine goals. In the remaining two matches at home against FC Basel (0: 5) and FC Zurich (0: 4), the runner-up got under the wheel. Nevertheless, between St. Gallen and Neuchatel Xamax we think there is no alternative to a home win. In view of the fact that FC Basel is in third place, five points behind, such a threesome would be tantamount to fixing the runner-up championship.
Probable lineup of St. Gallen:
↪ Zigi – Muheim, Letard, Stergiou, Hefti – Quintilla, Staubli, Görtler – Bakayoko, Itten, Guillemenot

Neuchatel Xamax – Statistics & current form
A year ago, Neuchatel Xamax was still writing football history. Although Neuchâtel lost the first leg of the relegation playoffs 4-0 to Aarau at the time, the Red-Blacks held the class sensationally thanks to a 4-0 win in the second leg and the subsequent penalty shootout. Thirteen months later, the three-time Swiss champion has to start second-class and deserves it.
Xamax has recorded just 27 points in the season so far. The table bottom won only five of the 34 matches. With 33 goals, they also made the most harmless offensive and, with 61 goals, one of the most vulnerable defenses.
Xamax descent finally sealed since last week
According to various experts, all these problems are homemade, however, because after the playoff success in 2019, those responsible put coach Stephane Henchoz outside the door and wanted to drive a new concept as a training club with Joel Magnin. Many young players were brought in but did not meet expectations, so the Neuchâtelers simply lacked the quality they needed to be competitive over the entire season. The return campaign by Stephane Henchoz eight game days before the end of the season did not bring about a change.
From the past ten matches, the red-blacks celebrated only one win. Recently there were two defeats in a row, with the 1: 4 in Geneva in particular having to be mentioned. We do not believe that the relegated player will surrender to his own fate, but it seems anything but improbable that a prediction for the underdog will come true between St. Gallen and Neuchatel Xamax.
It is more realistic that the guests will again lose at least two goals, as in four of the recent five away games in the Swiss top floor, and to make matters worse that Oss and Xhemaijli, two regular players in the defensive triple chain, will be canceled due to yellow cards.
Probable lineup of Neuchatel Xamax:
↪ Walthert – Neitzke, Djuric, Abanda – Kouassi, Kamber, Corbaz, Araz, Seydoux – Nuzzolo, Sakho

There are still two games to be completed in the Swiss Super League. St. Gallen still has the chance to win the title, but has to catch up five points behind the Young Boys and at the same time be careful that FC Basel is currently third with five points less.
Before the last home game of St. Gallen against Neuchatel Xamax, the betting odds imply a clear favorite role in favor of the home side, based primarily on the impressions so far this season. The Zeidler team won three of the last five home games and also won six of seven direct matches against Neuchâtel since 2018.
Key facts – St. Gallen vs Neuchatel Xamax tips
💫 Neuchâtel lost four of their most recent five appearances with two or more goals difference
💫 Xamax has to do without two important central defenders
💫 Six of the seven direct duels since 2018 have gone to St. Gallen
We even believe that the host will win by at least two goals, as the guests are already relegated and on the other hand, four of the last five appearances in the Super League have lost two or more goals. In addition, Coach Henchoz has to forego two key central defenders.
