Winterthur v Sion
In the aftermath of their eighth successive winless game and a record 6-0 home thrashing to Luzern, FC Winterthur may just have found the tonic to revitalise their ailing first season back in the Super League. They have bounced back from that run of form by stringing together three games in a row without defeat, including a 3-1 win at Sion and their first home victory of the season, a narrow 1-0 victory over Grasshoppers. That result in the derby was perhaps made even more impressive given that GC hadn’t failed to score this season.
Sion’s record reads as just one defeat in their last five games, winning three of the other four and coming from 4-1 down against Grasshoppers to draw 4-4 in a pulsating game in Zurich. There is just something different about this Sion side this season, there seems to be more togetherness, they are scoring more goals and don’t look like they will suffer the same fate of being dragged into the relegation mire as in the last few years. They bring a strong away record to the Schutzenwiese having lost only one of their last seven, but they did lose at home to Winterthur at the beginning of the month.
I’m predicting Both Teams to Score. Winti are improving, have scored in all but one of their six home games so far and scored three past Sion in the reverse fixture. Sion kept a home clean sheet last time out against Luzern but had conceded in their last six away matches before that, including four goals last time out to GC.
Luzern v St. Gallen
It has been a mix of disappointment and misfortune for Luzern over the last few weeks. They started the season very well indeed but, other than that highlight 6-0 win at Winterthur, they have struggled since early September. There are positives though, they were very unlucky not to take a point from their home match with YB as they were denied only by a very late goal, and they also earned a point away to Servette. FCL have lost their last two at the swissporarena but they are always a difficult prospect at this venue.
St. Gallen don’t exactly make the trip in fine fettle either as their winless run stretched to four games. They too, like Luzern, have been a tad unfortunate not to have picked up more points recently, losing away to Basel and YB with just minutes remaining on the clock. Their 1-1 draw at the weekend with Lugano was another case of deja vu as the Ticino club scored with seven minutes remaining to take a point in a game that FCSG will feel they could’ve held out to win.
I’d go for Over 2.5 Goals here. These two score plenty of goals, Luzern haven’t failed to find the net in their last ten home games while FCSG are the second-highest scorers behind YB in the division and have scored and conceded in their last eight games, seven of which have featured at least three goals. Five of the last six meetings have also ended this way.
