Zurich vs Servette Prediction & Betting tips
An international starting place is at the Zurich Letzigrund on Saturday evening. The FCZ based there receives the grenades from Geneva for the fight for the fourth place in the Raiffeisen Super League, which would entitle them to participate in the lucrative international business for both teams.
At the moment, the guests are still ahead, but with a home win, the FCZ can catch up with the Genevans in points. However, in the last two comparisons with the promoted team, the host received two sensitive defeats, which justify the outsider role of the blue and white.
In the fight for the attractive Europa League starting place, the FCZ suffered a severe setback during the week. At the bottom of the FC Thun team, head coach Ludovic Magnin suffered an unnecessary 2: 3 defeat. Already in the first 20 minutes, keeper Brecher pulled the ball out of his own net three times and, despite a 45-minute surplus, the chase was no longer possible.
With that, the blue-whites are three points behind and the clearly poorer goal difference compared to the Servette FC in the thankless fifth place in the table. After two victories in a row at the leaders of the St. Gallen table (4: 0) and against Lugano (1: 0), the Zurich guys thought they were on the right track.
This Saturday the important game against the “Grenats” from Geneva is on the program. With a threesome, the gap to the direct opponent would be made up and the twelve-time champion should continue to dream of participating in international business.
The FCZ continues to be the second worst defense in the league and also in the last game on Wednesday, big mistakes in the defense put the Magnin-Elf on the losing road. After the two clean sheets in the games before, it actually looked like the defensive alliance had gained stability.
The newcomer from Geneva is playing an impressive season for a newcomer to the league. After 27 match days, the “Grenats” are preparing to storm into the international competition.
At the end of the second week in a row, the Geneva team was in fourth place in the Swiss Super League, and therefore also in the position that still entitles them to qualify for the Europa League. On the back of the head coach Alain Geiger’s team is the upcoming opponent from Zurich. The lead is currently only three points.
Because of this, the guests in the game FC Zurich against Servette Geneva, the forecasts of the betting providers, are as easy favorites in the duel. However, the Geneva have been waiting for a three for five games and have had to settle for five points in a row.
The last four games on the opponent’s place were not victorious, which is why fans of the garnet reds are eagerly awaiting a sense of achievement. With 43 goals, Servette FC is the fourth best offensive and has managed to overcome the opposing goalkeeper at least once in each of the last six games.
With 28 goals conceded only FC Basel fewer goals than the promoted team, but goalkeeper Jeremy Frick has remained without a clean sheet in the last seven duels. In the duel against FC Zurich, the goalkeeper will be missing, as he got a red card on Tuesday against the Young Boys.
It is getting tight on the Geneva defensive. With Severin, Goncalves, Sasso and Iapichino, four defense specialists are likely to fail. Steve Rouiller returns to the squad after a yellow card suspension. Will Geneva stop the weak away streak?
