Sion vs Basel Free Match Predictions
Sion is in sixth place while Basel is 8th ahead of this Swiss Super League 2022/23 season clash. Basel has been the team to watch in this matchup because in the last 20 encounters, the visitors have 14 wins while FC Sion has only 2 victories. There have been 4 draws during the last 20 matchups. Our tipsters at Football Ground Guide have narrowed down to the three best predictions as follows:
Both teams to score
Despite a worrying start to the new season, we think Basel will score in this game. They won 4-2 against Zurich in the last game, a result we expect them to build on when they make this second consecutive league trip to Sion. Sion hasn’t been the better side in this clash but after a fairly encouraging start to the season, they too should score.
Secondly, a draw is another possible result to expect in this game. The last two games ended draws of 3-3 and 0-0. Now, if you look at recent stats in the new season, these teams aren’t far off from each other as only two points separate them. Goal-wise, Sion has scored 8 in 6 games while Basel has 6 goals in five games. Moreover, Sion has leaked 9, which are three more goals than those conceded by the visitors. So, with hosts doing better offensively but poor defensively, Basel’s run of scoring form is a direct opposite.
We have tipped both teams to score and a draw in our first and second predictions respectively. The third prediction for Sion vs Basel is a correct score of 1-1. The winning odds that have been assigned these teams aren’t far off from each other, so we think this will be an even duel.
Sion vs Basel Swiss Super League Round 7 Match Preview
Sion has a defensive record to give them hope in this clash with Basel. After six games, Sion has bagged two clean sheets in the league. The hosts have leaked 9 goals and scored 8 so far. The home fixture is an opportunity to defeat Basel for the first time in five games. Two of the last five encounters were won by Basel while the other two ended square. Two wins, two draws and two losses is an even distribution of Sion’s current season, so we think they have a chance of defeating Basel in this first encounter of the 2022/23 season.
Basel is struggling in the 2022/23 Swiss Professional League. After five matches, the mighty Basel has only one victory. Three draws and a loss so far means the visitors have accumulated only 6 points in 5 matches. Basel’s performance leaves a lot of gaps but you may argue that the visitors have been bogged down by their recent participation in EUFA Europa Conference League qualifiers. Basel’s only win so far was in their last game ahead of this clash with Sion, so expect them to build on the performance after some poor run of results. We think Basel will score in this trip.
