Servette vs Sion Prediction & Betting tips
In Switzerland, almost all decisions have already been made before the last matchday. The only thing that matters is who finishes in ninth place and must therefore be in the barrage against the second in the Challenge League. FC Thun currently has a slight advantage in the race for the targeted eighth place. The Bernese Oberlanders are one point ahead and with FC Zurich an opponent in front of their chests, which most recently served as cannon fodder.
However, the task is all the more complicated for the direct competitor from Sion, who has to compete in Geneva. Although the hosts can no longer be denied the ticket for the Europa League qualification, the odds of the best bookmakers will of course be influenced by the fact that it is a real Romand derby before the duel Servette Geneva against Sion.
We are therefore skeptical whether the implied role of favorites of the significantly worse placed guests is really justified or whether the host will do everything possible to shoot the geographic neighbors from western Switzerland into the relegation, precisely because of the long-standing rivalry.
For the second scenario and an associated Servette Geneva vs. Last but not least, Sion’s forecast speaks of the home strength of the promoted team, who last lost in their own stadium in October 2019 and has remained unbeaten in eleven games since then. Under these conditions, the higher quotes on the Geiger-Elf should definitely be kept in mind.
Even before the last matchday, those responsible at Servette Geneva can draw an absolutely positive conclusion to the season. In the year one after promotion from the Challenge League, the French-speaking Switzerland caused a sensation and have not been displaced from fourth place since Friday. In the coming season, the garnets will celebrate their comeback on the international stage.
Before that, the more than successful year should end with a sense of achievement. Despite the athletic insignificance, there should be no lack of motivation among coach Alan Geiger’s team. On the one hand, the Servette FC is determined to shoot the rival into the relegation. On the other hand, the impressive home series is also to be continued.
None of the last eleven home games have lost the garnet reds in the Super League. The last defeat was on October 20, 2019. Since then there have been seven wins and four draws. Among other things, the reigning champions from Bern or FC Basel could be defeated at home. Even better: with six of the seven successes mentioned, a handicap bet (-1.5) would always have paid off.
In our eyes, it would be definitely appropriate – despite the starting position mentioned – to give a bet on the home win between Servette Geneva and Sion. The course in the parallel game of FC Thun in Zurich could also benefit the host. If the Bernese Oberlanders were in the lead in the Letzigrund, the chances of the FCS would be reduced to a minimum and a home threesome would be more likely.
The only problem is the strained personnel situation at the Geneva team, although a large number of the currently missing players have not been available for the latest results such as the 4: 1 against Neuchatel or the 2: 2 against FC Basel. Instead, Coach Geiger will present a young team that wants to prove itself at the highest national level.
FC Sion is concerned about relegation! A matchday before the end, the Valais can only jump to the eighth place if they score at least one point more in their game in Geneva than FC Thun at FC Zurich at the same time. Otherwise, there are two relegation matches against FC Vaduz, which occupies second place in the second Swiss League.
The current constitution of the red and whites is not bad at all. After six unbeaten matches in a row, it suffered a close 0-1 loss to the Young Boys from Bern last Friday, causing Sion to drop back to ninth and cause Thun to pass.
Especially in a foreign country, the team of coach Tramezzani recently presented anything but second-rate. Seven points from the recent three away games underline the thesis that the Sioners have not given up. It is also a fact that the starting position and the pressure on Monday evening is a completely different one. Consequently, the latest results regarding the Servette Geneva against Sion forecast should not play a major role.
In terms of personnel, Coach Tramezzani, who only took over the scepter in the Valais at the beginning of June, can draw on almost everything. All service providers are available. Nevertheless, we would rightly claim that the lower odds for the guest between Servette Geneva and Sion are disproportionate, even if the betting providers know that only one away win will probably be enough to catch up with Thun.
