SION v ZURICH – SWISS CUP
March 2 2016, Stade Toutbillon, 19:45 GMT+0
Looking at the odds, Sion is a favourite, and it’s pretty clear why. Sion has won their last league match against Luzern and are back on 4th place, they also beat today’s opponents at Letzigrund (0:1) at the start of February. But Zurich will surely want to revenge the elimination from semi finals last year against Sion, and playing on the road is only a positive thing for the visitors, as they are better when in comes to road games, compared to home ones. I also find it important to mention, Zurich knocked out Young Boys (1:3) and Thun (1:4) on the road.
Sion will have to play without suspended Salatic and Ndoye and missing Mboyo, Adao and Cmelik. Also there might be a huge problem, with leading scorer Konate‘s appearance today is doubtful, the same goes for Ziegler and Kouassi.
The visiting side has lost the last match against Young Boys (0:1), but today it seems as they have a stronger team than Sion. Missing only Aleseric, Kleiber, Etoundi and Schonbachler. As for Vinicius, Nef and Simonyan are all available.
Zurich has had a goal to win the cup for a while, so I trust them to beat today opponents, advance and revenge their defeat from last year. I believe Zurich has the chance to kill 2 birds with one stone tonight.
Prediction Zurich +0.25
Odds: 1.92 Pinnacle
