Sion vs Thun Prediction & Betting tips
The most important decisions in the Swiss Super League are still pending on the remaining match days. Both the race for the championship and the relegation battle are still completely open and are getting worse from game to game. The highly anticipated duel between two direct competitors in the basement of the classification will take place on Saturday evening at 17:15 p.m. in the Stade de Tourbillon.
Before the game Sion against Thun, the odds are attested to the home side, although the team of coach Tramezzani could only win one of the last eight home games in the Super League. A threesome would be important, however, as the Valais are currently in ninth place on relegation and have to catch up three points for the upcoming opponent.
According to the latest impressions, it will be a difficult task for the host to keep the three points in their own stadium, because the guests from the Bernese Oberland have been unbeaten for four matches and have posted ten points in this period.
In addition, the Schneider-Elf of course has a great chance of successfully increasing the cushion downwards and possibly taking a decisive step towards staying in the league. In this respect, it is advisable to submit a tip between Sion and Thun in the direction of the red and white guests from the Canton of Bern.
It was undoubtedly the FC Sion that wrote the most negative headlines of all Swiss first division clubs during the forced break. First, the layoffs of some players caused a sensation, then the polarizing President Constantin turned to the association with the proposal to increase the Super League from ten to twelve teams in the future.
Since this issue is no longer in the room after the re-start, the red-whites from Valais are now seriously concerned about remaining in the top floor. In the remaining four games, the protégés of coach Tramezzani have to catch up three points on the upcoming opponent from Thun, who still has only three matches in front of his chest. Otherwise the relegation threatens against the second from the Challenge League.
As a result, the direct duel on Saturday evening is logically of importance. Before the kick-off between Sion and Thun, the odds of the best bookmakers swing in the direction of the Sitteners who, after a bad start to the restart, got the last turn with just one point from five games. The FCS has been unbeaten for four matches, eight of the possible twelve points were collected.
The defensive in particular has been greatly improved in recent days and weeks. Two goals against during the unbeaten streak mentioned underline this.
Tramezzani, who was installed as the new head coach at the beginning of June, has not yet fully managed the weakness at home. Only one of the four home games under his leadership was victorious. Throughout the season, only rear-end Xamax posted even fewer points in their own stadium than the Valais.
Last year, FC Thun was the fourth in the final accounts to be one of the positive surprises in the Swiss Super League. In the 2019/20 season, the hashtag #MissionLigaerhalt recently launched by the club shows that not everything went according to plan. In fact, the Red-Whites still have to worry about remaining in the top division in the country three matchdays before the goal closes.
With currently three points ahead of Sion and a more completed game, the encounter against the direct competitor is a classic “six-point game”. In the event of a victory, the Valais could be put on six points and the starting position in the battle for eighth could be further improved. Before the duel Sion against Thun, exactly this chance for the guests should be taken into account positively for a potential forecast.
Another argument that speaks for the team of coach Marc Schneider in our eyes is the fact that the Bernese Oberlanders got ten points from the past four matches and during the week against Servette Geneva in the 5: 1 success a real firework display flared off. The Europa League participant was already in a strong form in the 2-1 win over the then leader Sankt Gallen.
For the current eighth it is now a question of finally accessing these services abroad. The cup finalist of 2019 has been away for a threesome since mid-February. This should also be the reason why higher rates are offered to the guest between Sion and Thun, although the latter was able to convince in the end. Hedigler, Bigler and Roth definitely have to fit. There is a question mark behind the use of Suttner.
