BSC Young Boys Stats & History
BSC Young Boys was founded in 1898 and the name was inspired by Basel club Old Boys. Young Boys won their first Swiss Championship in 1903 with wins over Zurich and FC Neuchatel. They managed three consecutive titles from 1909 to 1911 and established themselves as one of the best teams in Switzerland.
Young Boys also won Swiss Championships in 1920 and 1929. The first Swiss Cup title in the BSC Young Boys stats was from 1930. Right at the end of WWII, they won their second Swiss Cup title but had some difficult seasons ahead. They were relegated in 1947 but managed to return to the Swiss top flight in 1950.
The Bern club had an excellent period in the 1950s and won four consecutive Swiss League titles from 1956-57 to 1959-60. In the 1958-59 season, they managed the best-ever European Cup performance in the Young Boys stats. Young Boys reached the semifinals and managed to defeat Reims 1-0 at home. However, they fell 3-0 in the reverse fixture and got knocked out.
Longtime coach Albert Sing left the club in 1964 with four Swiss League titles and two Swiss Cup triumphs. After Sing stepped down, Young Boys struggled to win trophies but still held their place in the top tier domestic league. They finally broke a 13-year trophy drought in 1977 with a fifth Swiss Cup trophy.

In 1986, Young Boys shocked Real Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their first round European Cup meeting. In the return leg, Young Boys fell 5-0 and were eliminated from the competition. Following a league trophy in 1986 and a Swiss Cup win in 1987, Young Boys went through their biggest trophy drought in club history.
Young Boys played in the second division for the first time in 50 years, in 1997. They eventually returned to the top flight but wouldn’t win a trophy until a Swiss Super League title in 2018. In 2019, Young Boys set Super League records for most points, most goals, and best goal difference in a single season. They won the double in 2020 and extended their Super League title streak to four in 2021.
With four titles in the last five seasons, they’ll be favored in most of their Swiss Super League matches this season. Betting advice recommends taking them at home, since they lost just five league matches in Bern from 2017-18 to 2021-22. They’re entered into Europa Conference League qualifiers in 2022-23, so bettors will have to wait to bet on their Champions League odds until their next qualification.
