Cameroon’s striker of the moment Jean-Pierre Nsamé was on target again this Thursday evening as his side narrowly edged Xamax one-nil in match-day 33 of the Swiss Super League Championship.
Nsamé needed just 8 minutes to score a 29th goal in 29 league games this term for Young Boys Berne away at relegation threatened Xamax.
The forward pounced on an inch-perfect Christian Martins through ball in-behind the Xamax backline to put the visitors on the lead.
The opener from Jean-Pierre Nsame that has set YB on their way to an almost certain third title in a row.

Playing to save their top-flight life, Xamax multiplied efforts to get back into the game before half time, but Young Boys defended properly and kept their lead till the wnd of the first segment.
The second segment was played in a cagey fashion as both sides were cognizant of the importance of the next goal of the game.
With Young Boys looking for the victory ‘insurance’ goal, coach Gerardo Seoane brought in Nsamé’s compatriot Ngamaleu in place of Elia Meshack in the 73rd minutes.
Four minutes later, Nsamé was shown one of the six yellow cards of the game but most important, his goal was still the difference at the moment.
The remaining minutes of the game failed to produce any real spark till full time.
The game ended on the one-nil score for visiting Young Boys Berne, it takes the defending Champions further to another League title with just three games left.
Young Boys have accumulated 67 points so far, and are five points clear of second-placed Saint Gallen.
Nsame is having a special season as his latest strike takes his total season tally to 35 goals.
He is nearly guaranteed to be the Championship’s lead scorer at the end of the 2019-2020 season.
