FC Zurich to Win
Despite struggling for the duration of last season, FCZ were in complete control in their season opener. Lugano could not pierce their defence and succumb to a 0-2 defeat. André Breitenreiter's men now welcome Lausanne Sport, who were unable to start the new campaign on a bright note at home. Now on the road, the odds are stacked against them and with good reason. Expect Zurich to take home the three points on offer and continue their impressive start to the campaign.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
FCZ profited from Lugano's hapless attacking and kept the scores to a minimum. It will be a different scenario at the Letzigrund Stadion as the Lausanne squad makes the trip. The Blue and White gave a fighting display in their 1-2 defeat and have enough in the tank to trouble the scorers. With both sides going for the victory to establish a fighting start to the campaign, we expect a high scoring affair that should provide at least three goals.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their away trip to Lugano, FCZ showed enough composure at the back to come away with a clean sheet. They will be cautious of their rivals in this outing but will not be throttling their attacking instincts. It should be enough for Lausanne to get on the scoreboard, akin to their performance against St. Gallen. Lausanne cannot let their slide impact their trip and should be able to make Zurich's defence pay. Given the attacking pedigrees of both outfits and the fact that we are just entering Matchday 2, there should be goals on either side of the pitch.
Zurich vs Lausanne: Team News and Match Preview
FCZ impressed on the road against Lugano and André Breitenreiter will hope his charges deliver a similar result at home. The opening goal came from Adrian Guerrero while the finishing touches were provided by Antonio Marchesano. The Italian midfielder has started the season amongst goals, the same fashion in which he finished in the last one. With FCZ looking to put behind their 8th place finish behind them, Marchesano will prove to be a key player.
Without a manager in charge, FC Lausanne Sport has a tough task on their hands. Their defeat to St Gallen did not raise any eyebrows but more will be expected of the squad after their fighting performance. It will be interesting to see how on-loan midfielder from Nice, Brahima Ouattara, performs in his first full campaign with the first team. The Ivorian has gotten on the scoreboard in his last out outings and is seen as an important prospect at the age of 18. Outtara is in the company of compatriot and fellow Nice academy player, Jean Kouadio Nguessan.
