Lugano to Win

While Zurich had trouble engaging Xamax and succumbed to a 1-4 defeat, Lugano held Italian champions Inter Milan to a 2-2 draw. As the two Swiss sides come together for the season opener, our bet is on Lugano to take home the three points on offer.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

In two of their last four fixtures, Lugano has seen three or more goals. On the other hand, FC Zurich has had similar results with three of their last six fixtures finishing in an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. With both sides favouring attacking instincts over defensive lethargy, expect a hotly contested affair with plenty of goals to boast off.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

There have been nine clean sheets in the last ten H2H meetings between Lugano and Zurich. Moreover, both sides have four wins apiece to their name. We expect the trend to change in this fixture, a consequence of little match practice at the start of the campaign. This punt also lends value from the fact that both sides have scored despite being on losing run in the preseason outings. Expect the goalkeepers to come under pressure and be forced to pick the ball out of their nets.

Lugano vs Zurich: Team News and Match Preview

FC Lugano

Abel Braga got an extended lease of life at the Cornaredo Stadium thanks to a fourth-place finish. The Lugano hierarchy managed to curb their enthusiasm and not adopt a different approach, but time is running out for Braga to take the club on an upwards trajectory. There is positivity surrounding the club and especially the rise of young Nikolas Muci. The 18-year-old has featured regularly in pre-season and might get an extended time with the first-team roster.

 

FC Zurich

FCZ has fallen behind the pack and barely managed to stay in the Swiss Super League. André Breitenreiter needs to ensure an improvement in their fortunes or he will be ushered through the exit door unceremoniously. While FC Lugano faithful are anticipating Muci's performances with the first team, FC Zurich fans know what to expect from their teenage prodigy Degnand Wilfried Gnonto. The 17-year-old Italian scored against Vaduz in the final match of the season and more is expected from him this season.
