Excitement at the top of the table in the Super League! In fact, there does not seem to be a team march this season. Before the English week, the top three are separated by only one point after seven matchdays. Besides champions YBB and vice champion Basel, FC Sion is also one of the front runners.
Today’s Soccer Predictions Servette Geneva vs Lugano
Also as a positive surprise, the climber from Geneva can be described so far. With nine points, the team is in fifth place. On Thursday evening, the duel between Servette Geneva and Lugano will take place in Geneva!
Shortly before the end of the first championship quarter, the fans of the ascendant can be quite satisfied. However, this is certainly not the case for the Europa League starter and last year’s third from Lugano. The team has not yet been able to build on the strong performance of the previous year. Accordingly, in the duel between Servette Geneva and Lugano are also the odds offered.
Servette Geneva – Statistics & Current Form
The euphoria after the strong performance at the beginning of the season has received a small damper in recent days. After the first international break, Alain Geiger’s team – who was voted Wallisian footballer of the century these days – suffered two bitter defeats.
For one thing, despite a 60-minute defeat at second division Grasshoppers, they lost 1-0 in the Cup. Frustration did not succeed a week later in the Super League, because with the aspens from Sankt Gallen it put another defeat: In the kybunpark had the newly promoted defeated with 1: 3.
For the Geiger protected it was the second failure in the current Super League season, for the second time there was a 1: 3 away digest (as against FC Basel). In front of the home crowd, there was still no defeat for the promoted. In the first three home games of the season there was a victory (against FC Luzern) and two draws (against Sion and against Xamax).
Striking is also that fall in the home games far fewer goals than in foreign countries. Thus, between Servette Geneva and Lugano a prediction on the under 2.5 seems quite lucrative.
Personally, there will be little change compared to last week. Head coach Alain Geiger will continue to miss important players such as top talent Kastriot Imeri, left-back Dennis Iapichino or midfielder Timothe Cognat due to various injuries. Best scorer is currently midfielder Sebastien Wüthrich with three goals and two assists.

Lugano – Statistics & Current Form
Third place and the associated direct qualification for the group stage of the UEFA Europa League. Head coach Fabio Celestini caused a sensation in Swiss football with FC Lugano last season. Despite the guaranteed revenue on the international stage, the club was still no risk and only required free transfer players.
The club has learned from the past and does not want to take another financial risk. Absolutely exemplary, although the sporting success in this season is still coming.
In the first seven league games, there was only one victory for Lugano, this succeeded the Celestini-Eleven on Matchday 1 against FC Zurich. Since then, there have been four defeats and only two draws. Five points currently mean eighth in the Super League.
Last weekend, the defeat series could be interrupted. After four defeats in series (all in foreign countries), there was a 1-1 draw in the home game against FC Luzern. Despite an early goal (4 minutes) Lugano found no security, according to statistics, the hit was also the only shot on goal to the opponent’s housing.
Lugano was booed by its own fans. Patience seems to be over; In line with this, reports have already circulated that President Angelo Renzetti is already trying to find a successor. Celestini is counted powerfully and needs compelling results. With the 1-1 draw against Luzern he held in office, but any further defeat could mean the end.
After the high-altitude flight last year, the team from Italian-speaking Switzerland has returned to the ground. The pressure on Fabio Celestini is huge and he urgently needs positive results. However, Lugano’s recent performances and Servette’s home form do not necessarily give cause for hope. In the duel between Servette Geneva and Lugano a prediction towards the guests is definitely too risky.
Expected formation of Lugano:
➲ Baumann – Daprela, Kecskes, Maric, Lavanchy – Custodio, Sabbatini, Vecsel – Aratore, Holender, Carlinhos Junior
