Seasonal head to head
Fribourg Gottéron and Bienne face each other for the third time this season and for the second time at the BCF Arena. Up until now, there was no deal to make for the Seeländers… Mark French’s troops in fact, won both two the previous seasonal head to head.
To note that, because of an absurd schedule, the two teams will face each other again tomorrow in Bienne. We talked about it yesterday… here is the link.

HC Fribourg Gottéron
Fribourg Gottéron are coming off the 1-3 away defeat suffered against the ZSC Lions that followed the 1-2 away defeat suffered against Ambrì-Piotta. The last two performances were decent… but it seemed like that “little something extra” was missing and this explains the two losses. Moreover, it’s pointless to beat around the bush: recently, the Dragons are struggling to earn good results. This is evidenced by the fact that they won only 1 of their last 6 games. The fans hope that tonight the team can start a new winning run! Gottéron felt quite comfortable against the Seeländers this season, after all…
Bienne are coming off the two narrow wins earned against Lugano away (4-3) and then against Zug at home (4-2). The win earned in Tessin was a godsend for the Seeländers… firstly, because it put to an end their 4-games losing streak. Secondly, because it allowed Törmänen’s troops to boost their morale and this was evidenced by the fact that during the last game against Zug they went back playing a nice and winning hockey. This week-end, the fans expect their team can go on like this and win against an opponent that turned out to be quite indigestible this season…
It’s been over two years since the last time Bienne won in Fribourg… the last time, it happened back on December 2nd, 2016. On that day, the Seeländers earned a 5-3 away win thanks to the goals scored by Marco Pedretti (2), Jacob Micflikier, and Julian Schmutz (2). The hosts scorers instead, were Mattias Ritola and Michal Birner (2).
