FC Zurich vs Sion Soccer Betting Prediction
Does Sion jump to the saving shore?
After one or the other infected case occurred, the Swiss Super League was in the meantime before the final termination. In the meantime, however, the situation has eased somewhat, so it can be assumed that the two remaining game days will also be completed.
However, before all teams are back in action on Friday, there will be an important catch-up game between FC Zurich and Sion on Tuesday, in which the guests are favored slightly according to the odds. This assessment of the best bookmakers is surprising at first glance in that the Valais are currently in ninth position and are worried about staying in the league, while FCZ at least still has mathematical chances of participating in the Europa League.
However, if we look at the current form curves of both clubs, it becomes clear why, before the FC Zurich duel against Sion, a prognosis for the guest seems anything but unrealistic. The Sooners have been unbeaten in five games in the Super League and, given the rest of the program, are doomed to win.
Significantly less pressure, however, weighs on the Zurich team, who can theoretically still finish fourth with seven points behind, but after four defeats in a row had to bury their very high hopes. Consequently, between FC Zurich and Sion, we also think the tip on the Tramezzani team is far more lucrative.
FC Zurich – Statistics & current form
At FC Zurich, it rumbles behind the scenes. The reason is the renewed earnings crisis, which began with 0: 4 in mid-July at FC Basel and continued with defeats against the Young Boys (0: 5), Lugano (0: 1) and finally St. Gallen (1: 3). One could argue that Ludovic Magnin had to deal with a few infected cases in his team, but this is only half an alibi for the bottom line disappointing performance.
As so often in the past, the gap between expectation and reality in the Letzigrund gapes widely. The qualification for the Europa League was advertised as an internal goal, but with three games remaining and seven points behind, it seems almost utopian to continue believing in the return to international business. Instead, the view may even have to be directed backward, as there is still a mathematically missing point for fixed relegation.
FC Zurich last with four losses in a row
Due to the current condition with only a three from the past seven Super League games and the four bankruptcies mentioned in which keeper Brecher had to go through 13 times, it is difficult to predict between FC Zurich and Sion To give home victory, especially since the Zurich team could not cause a sensation at home over the entire season.
With just seven wins in 16 home games and an equal number of defeats (two draws), the blue-whites only ranked eighth in the home table. No other team conceded more goals at home than the FCZ. So far there are 36 of them. Only in two of the last eight matches in Letzigrund did the team of coach Ludovic Magnin, who despite the last results remain firmly in the saddle, leave the field as the winner.
To make matters worse, on Tuesday evening in the catch-up game, the blocked Schönbächler (seven goals, four assists), Tosin (seven goals) and Mahi (five assists) will make three of the most effective attacking players unavailable. The underdog role implied by the quotas is therefore by no means unfounded.
The probable lineup of FC Zurich:
Brecher – Kempter, Nathan, Omeragic, Ruegg – Kryeziu, Domgjoni – Kololli, Marchesano, Koide – Kramer
Last games from FC Zurich:
07/25 2020 FC Zurich 1 – 3 FC St. Gallen
07/22 2020 FC Lugano 1 – 0 FC Zurich
07/18 2020 FC Zurich 0 – 5 BSC Young Boys
07/14 2020 FC Basel 1893 4 – 0 FC Zurich
07/07 2020 Neuchatel Xamax FCS 1 – 1 FC Zurich
Sion – Statistics & current form
The season could go on for more than three games for FC Sion. Because the Valais are currently in ninth place, they face two additional matches in the relegation. There the penultimate of the Super League would meet the runner-up in the Challenge League. The red and whites would love to avoid these do-or-die games. There are currently three counters missing on the saving bank.
The team of coach Tramezzani missed a real big point last weekend when they scored the acclaimed 1-0 at home against their direct table neighbor Thun (8th) ten minutes before the end, but only four minutes later the goal to 1-1 Final score received.
Sion unbeaten five times in a row
Instead of catching up with the Bernese Oberländer, there are still three counters that should be retracted on Tuesday evening if possible. In the event of a draw, Sion would currently have the upper hand thanks to the better goal difference. If they won, the Red and Whites would jump to eighth place. If we believe the odds between FC Zurich and Sion, a threesome of the guest eleven is anything but improbable.
The shape seems to fit absolutely after the last five unbeaten games in a row (two wins, three draws). The only three conceded goals in this period are a positive indication.
Only the balance abroad can be expanded with only four successes and the least scored goals (14). The not always harmonizing offensive on Tuesday may benefit from the FCZ’s weakest defense in the Super League. Except for Rossi, Cavare, and striker Luan, all professionals are ready to go.
Probable lineups of Sion:
Fickentscher – Lejani, Bamert, Ndoye, Maceiras – Toma, Zock, Grgic, Baltazar – Kasami, Itaitinga
Last games from Sion:
07/25 2020 FC Sion 1 – 1 FC Thun
07/22 2020 FC Luzern 1 – 2 FC Sion
07/19 2020 FC Sion 1 – 1 FC Lugano

FC Zurich vs Sion Direct comparison
For the fourth time, the two teams will face each other on Tuesday evening. So far, the balance is balanced with a win and a draw. What is interesting, however, is the fact that the home team won in four of the past five direct duels. The last away win came in 2018 when Sion prevailed 2-1 in Letzigrund. It was also one of only ten bankruptcies in 58 home games that FCZ had conquered against the Valais so far.

FC Zurich vs Sion Soccer Betting Tips
We eagerly await the catch-up game in the Swiss Super League on Tuesday evening. FC Zurich receives Sion and is only treated as an outsider according to the betting odds. This is because the home side lost four times in a row and once again lived up to its reputation as a shooting gallery in the league.
Besides, the guests from Valais have been unbeaten for five games and also need every point for relegation. We believe that it allows jumping to the saving bank with a threesome, which is why we tend to win the Tramezzani eleven, which is poorly placed in the classification.
Key facts – FC Zurich vs Sion tips
The FCZ last lost four times in a row and conceded 13 goals
Sion remained unbeaten five times in a row
Zurich’s weakest defense is the Super League
