Lugano vs Grasshoppers Prediction & Betting tips
Already after the start a trend is emerging in the Super League. The reigning champion from Bern also stands out this season. After three rounds, the Young Boys stand with nine points and without conceding at the top of the table. In this article we are dealing with a duel from the table cellar. FC Lugano have won the starting game against FC Sion with much luck and thus earned three points. In the following two games the Ticino received two defeats. The situation at the Grasshoppers looks even worse. After three rounds, the Hoppers are in last place – still without points. Thorsten Fink is still in office as a coach; Nevertheless, the pressure in Zurich will continue to worsen, should another defeat follow. Given the betting odds, we recommend a bet on over 2.5 goals in the duel between FC Lugano and Grasshoppers. Already in the last season, both teams were relegation threatened. In the then direct duel fell seven goals and GC took the important three points. Also on Saturday, the Hoppers definitely need the first sense of achievement in the new season.
Thanks to a closed team effort in the closing stages of last season, the Ticino made it to the league. As the bottom half of the table in the Super League was very balanced, the FC Lugano finished even sixth, but only with seven points behind the later relegated from Lausanne. Also this season the signs are set early on descent. At present, FC Lugano occupy the second-to-last rank. After three rounds, everything is still open, but disappointed the Ticino in the new season. After the surprising away win in the Valais followed by two defeats.
Against the reigning champion, the footballers from the Sonnenstube in Switzerland never really got going. Last weekend, the Ticino met again in the opposing goal. As Carlinhos missed a penalty, the game ended 4-2 in favor of the Central Swiss. On Saturday, an important game is on the program. FC Lugano could keep the Hoppers at bay with a win. Last season, the Ticino won the home game just 1: 0.
Thorsten Fink joined the Grasshoppers just a few games before the end of the season. Under the direction of Fink directly followed probably the most important game of the whole season. Away in the direct duel against the Lausanne FC it was six points. Only in the 81st minute succeeded Kodro the decisive winner. At the end of the season GC had only four points ahead of the relegation zone. Contrary to expectations, the performance also moved into the current season. In all three championship games Grasshoppers conceded defeats and at least two goals.
However, last weekend saw a significant increase in performance. Away in Basel, the Zurich kept especially in the second half. After a 4-0 deficit, the blue-whites turned again and scored two goals. However, Sigurjonsson and Djuricin even had the opportunity to equalize, but both missed a penalty. This weekend, the Hoppers must urgently come to the first points of the new season, otherwise the coaching position of Fink is certainly called into question. In the game against Lugano, the Grasshoppers are judged by the odds but at a disadvantage, so that successful bets on the away win with the 3.8 -fold use will be rewarded.
