Lugano vs Thun Prediction & Betting tips
Thun travels to the Canton of Ticino with a lot of tailwind during the week. The red-whites won the six-point game at home against Xamax clearly 3-0 and increased their lead on relegation zone. The head is not out of the loop yet. Another threesome at table neighbor Lugano would give Thun more air – and make a quartet out of the trio that is currently fighting against relegation.
In the run-up to the game between Lugano and Thun, however, the odds of the bookmakers swing towards Ticino, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows.
It is perfectly coherent to go with the supposed outsider and to play against Thun Tip 2 at Lugano. After all, the Ticinese have conceded three goals in their last three league games without a win and have also lost the last duel with FC Thun 2: 3.
First, FC Lugano came out of the involuntary break and scored seven out of twelve possible points from the first four games. Among other things, the big FC Basel was forced to its knees 2-1.
Then, however, the last three games followed, in which there were only two additional points for each three goals conceded. Most recently, the Ticino team lost a 3-0 lead near Lucerne and again left important points in the fight for relegation in the 3: 3 final result.
FC Sion, who are currently ninth, are eight points ahead of six games before the end of the season. There are seven points for today’s guest from the Canton of Bern. If these seven points remain at least by holding the draw, this would certainly be a big step.
At Lugano against Thun, the odds for a point win for Maurizio Jacobacci’s men are quite favorable. But the pressure should not be neglected. In the event of a bankruptcy at home, the lead would eventually shrink to four points and Lugano would be right in the middle of the relegation zone.
The list of injuries is certainly to be seen critically. With Custodio, Macek and Bottani, three midfielders are missing, which limits the rotation options. The recently playful 3-0 win over Lucerne showed that this is a problem with the packed game schedule when Lugano scored three goals in the last half hour.
Last, but not least, the home record of black and white people is anything but terrifying. The third of the previous season could only win four of the 15 games in the Stadio di Cornaredo and scored only 13 goals at home. No other team in Switzerland had to struggle with jamming in their own stadium more than the people of Ticino.
FC Thun has been part of the Super League for ten years. Last summer the Red and Whites landed there in a respectable fourth place and reached the cup final for the second time in the club’s 122-year history.
Currently, the reality for the club from the Bernese Oberland is relegation battle. Marc Schneider’s troupe landed a “big point” of superlatives on Sunday. With a 3-0 win over Xamax, the direct relegation zone, which would have been threatened in the event of a defeat, is now five points away.
It is all the more important that the next six-point game will be replenished within just four days. The men from the canton of Bern are still threatened by the relegation relegation.
Of course, the team’s bad away record from the Bernese Oberland also plays a role. FC Thun lost eleven of the 15 appearances, which earned the Red and Whites the worst away record in the entire Super League.
Of particular importance are the 33 away goals already conceded, which correspond to the negative value of all ten first division teams. The match in Canton Ticino certainly doesn’t make it easier that Nicola Sutter, a key player in central defense, is missing.
