Zurich vs St Gallen: Top free betting tips
Zurich will be looking forward to strengthening their top position in the Swiss Super League when they entertain Gallen in the next fixture. Both teams will be entering at Letzigrund Stadion on Saturday, 26 August. Espen also got the back of a victory before this game against Winau in the Swiss Cup.
Match result prediction: Zurich to win
Zurich has registered four victories in the last five fixtures in the Swiss Super League and the Swiss Cup, ending one in a draw. On the other hand, Gallen has also gone undefeated in the last three matches. However, Espen has been dismal away from Kybunpark and has been winless in all visits in the league since March. Additionally, Zurich has also defeated Gallen in three of the previous four H2Hs at Letzigrund Stadion. Hence, we back Zurich to fancy their chances in front of the home crowd and collect three points.
Total goals prediction: over 2.5 goals
Zurich has found the back of the net 12 times in the last five matches in the Swiss Super League and Swiss Super Cup. On the other hand, Gallen has also rattled the net five times in the previous three fixtures. Defensively, Espen has allowed goals at the back in each of the previous five competitive matches. Furthermore, three of the last five H2Hs of these two clubs at Letzigrund have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Based on the numbers, we can expect the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Zurich
Zurich has notched multiple goals in each of the last five competitive fixtures, scoring twice in three games. On the other hand, Gallen has rattled the net just once in three of the recent five road fixtures in the Swiss Super League. Espen also has a strong defensive challenge ahead as FCZ have conceded just two goals in their last five matches in the Swiss Super League and Swiss Cup. Considering these facts, we predict a 2-1 lead for Zurich at the end of the ninety minutes of this encounter.
