Zurich vs Thun Prediction & Betting tips
The championship in the Swiss Super League was only decided on the 35th matchday of the current season. The Confederates have not had such an exciting title fight for years. After the title hat trick for the Young Boys, an important question is answered on the last day – who has to go to the Barrage?
In the remote duel, FC Thun and FC Sion are fighting for direct relegation, with both teams competing abroad. In the Letzigrund Stadium, FC Zurich and Thun are facing each other, Sion is visiting fourth Servette.
The eleven from the Bernese Oberland were able to leave ninth place with the goalless draw against FC Basel and have a point advantage over the eleven from the Valais before the last matchday. If on Monday evening, the start of the game is at 19:30 p.m., between FC Zurich and Thun, the prognosis for the guest victory will be successful, the Schneider team will remain in the league. In our tip category Football Switzerland, the Romand derby by Servette Geneva and Sion was examined in detail.
This success would not be really surprising, because the Magnin charges from the banking city of Zurich are in a blatant depth and have all lost the last six games.
FC Zurich recently made many headlines in Swiss football and almost total knockout. the 2019/20 season, after several players tested positive and the tight schedule in the Swiss Football House was questioned. All players had to go to quarantine and in the Sankt Jakobs Park in Basel, the FCZ was a guest with a U21 team.
The 0: 4 defeat against the 20-time champions was therefore not a surprise and the young savages presented themselves at times competitive. The professionals have not been really competitive since the home quarantine, because in the last five games the Magnin-Elf only received defeats in the best line-up, with just two meager goals being scored.
Fortunately, the FCZ collected 42 points before the renewed interruption, escaping a real relegation thriller on the last day of the game. FCZ lost 1-2 to FC Luzern, but thanks to the results of the competition, relegation was fixed.
What is frightening with the Magnin-Elf is the fact that the team is considered the shooting gallery of the league. Even fix relegated team Xamax Neuchatel received fewer goals (67) than Zurich (69). These numbers are even more incredible when you consider that FCZ were able to keep the zero in ten of the 35 league games.
The team from the Bernese Oberland is extremely down-to-earth and year after year relegation is the goal. Last year, when qualifications for Europe were successful, head coach Marc Schneider always looked down. FC Thun can assess its own qualities quite well and is equipped with a mini budget. Nevertheless, strong results have repeatedly been achieved in recent years.
In 2019/20, however, the team never really found consistency and always had the relegation ghost on their necks. A detailed look at the Super League table shows that the Schneider team has been in tenth or ninth place almost continuously since matchday seven. A great mental strain and yet the nerves were never thrown away. The club management acted calmly and always stood behind long-term coach Marc Schneider.
A decision that has paid off. Even if relegation has not yet been secured, direct descent is no longer an issue. The Elf from the Bernese Oberland can also go into the last Super League game of the season with great confidence. The form is absolutely satisfactory, after all Thun hasn’t lost six league games (three wins, three draws).
Last Friday Thun made a goalless draw against FC Basel and was nevertheless disappointed after the game. Thun had clear headwaters, but neglected some chances. Due to the poorer goal difference compared to Sion (-6 goals), a complete success is needed in case of a Sion victory.
