St. Gallen welcomes Bern in the Kreuzbleiche sports hall. Similar like in the last match against bottom club Kreuzlingen, they will be witout two top scorers Ariel Pietrasik and Dominik Jurilj, which will be a huge blow. Their absence was visible in the last match, where they only beat poor Kreuzlingen by 29:31. Bern is still in the middle of the fight for a good starting position for the playoffs. They are currently sixth in the table, level on points with Wacker Thun, which has the worse goal difference. The guests are in good form with 7 wins in the last 10 rounds (two defeats by first placed Kriens) and will throw everything into the balance to get two points in St. Gallen. Bern won in the last three mutual matches.
