Groundhopping Weekend

It was the first test match in this year for the Young Boys. They played FC Solothurn in an away game that ended 1-2 in favour of the Young Boys.

But we had to move on already after the half-time whistle in order to arrive in Saint-Etienne on time where the local team AS Saint-Etienne played FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in a Ligue 1 game. The beautiful stadium was filled with 20'222 visitors. Saint-Etienne won the game 1-0.

After the game, again, we went straight on to the next city: Turin. We drank some beer and slept for some hours before we went to the new Delle Alpi stadium (called Juventus Stadium now). Tickets were bought online some days prior to the game for as much as 70 euros. Juve faced Cagliari in a league game and drew them 1-1. They've built a quite nice stadium.

Next game was the Derby della Madonnina: AC Milan versus Inter Milan. We could not buy tickets online so we just went there in the hope of being able to buy tickets. Since we had to drive back to Bern from Turin anyway it wasn't such a big detour so we took the risk. I think we've all had the ground before the game but we certainly would have liked to see the derby. We didn't buy any of the expensive tickets though since in Italy you usually have to show your ID when entering the stadium.

It was a nice weekend, 1'500 km driven in a great small car.
