Basel has fallen from their former glory when they dominated Swiss football, winning championship after championship. This season, they finished in the lower half after the first round and entered the relegation group. While they have performed decently in this group, they have had their fair share of draws, with three consecutive ties at the end of April and the beginning of May.

Yverdon-Sport - Form Analysis:

Yverdon-Sport achieved their goals in the main round of the championship. Last year, they were still in the Challenge League and are now playing in the top division for the first time since 2006. Their primary objective was to avoid relegation, which they secured early on. They continued their momentum, winning against Grasshopper, Ouchy, and Lausanne in April and May. However, all these victories were at home; they have been toothless away from home.
