After FC Lugano won the Championship Cup, the last European questions were clarified. YB is strong in the Conference League qualifiers because St. Gallen can no longer catch up. If the trophy winner Lugano successfully intercepts the ousted champion, it doesn’t matter in Europe. YB in any case.
Basel and YB group, not Lugano rather
Ticino will start the Mission Conference League from the third preliminary round (and in Cornaredo!), so they have to survive two rounds because the final hurdle is the playoffs.
It doesn’t matter if Basel or YB are second at the end of the season, they both start in the second round of the playoffs, so they have to survive three rounds. Both will be safe at least for the second and third rounds. In qualifying, that’s still open, but it’s possible. On the other hand, Lugano should be unstable from the start.
Last time only four teams – hopefully
Next will be the final season with only four Swiss teams. After that it was ranked fifth because we won three places in the UEFA rankings. Plus, we have two Champions League qualifier matches again, and the cup winner is fighting for the top-tier European League and not for the Conference League.
YB’s target is only runner-up
YB’s recent European qualification is also closely related to the relegation battle. Because now it is no longer Europe for Berne. Just about to become runner-up and, above all, snatch second place from FC Basel. With Lucerne and GC, Team Bernese meet two of the three teams involved in the brutal Battle of Barrage Platz!
