Sion vs Luzern Swiss Super League Date: 11 May 2022, Wednesday Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET Venue: Stade de Tourbillon (Sion).
Stakes will be sky-high on Wednesday evening when Sion host Luzern in a massive six-pointer in the relegation battle at Stade de Tourbillon.
Sion have just played the same relegation six-pointer three days ago when they saw off Grasshoppers 0-1 on the road.
Striker Filip Stojiljkovic made the difference between the two teams by netting the only goal of the game just before the hour-mark.
Sion thus successfully rebounded from a two-loss run just when they needed it most. The team led by famous Italian manager Paolo Tramezzani are now seventh in the league table, sitting four points above Luzern who currently hold the relegation playoffs spot.
Backing up the win over the eighth-placed Grasshoppers will be quite a big challenge for the hosts here because Luzern will come into this tie encouraged after two remarkable performances in the previous couple of rounds.
Mario Frick’s men managed back-to-back wins over Lausanne Sport and Servette in the last two Gameweeks, scoring seven unanswered goals in the process.
They moved away from the very foot of the standings thanks to a thread of three victories in the previous four rounds.
They were especially impressive on Sunday afternoon, beating Servette 4-0 on the home patch.
Sion vs Luzern Head-to-head
Sion have dominated this matchup over the course of history, especially in the clashes at Stade de Tourbillon where they won 26, drew 12, and lost only 9 of the last 47 meetings with Luzern.
None of the previous five head to head clashes between the two rivals saw three or more goals scored.
Three of the previous five H2H matches ended in 1-1 draws.
Sion vs Luzern Prediction
The tension will be high on Wednesday evening at Stade de Tourbillon. If we add the fact that all of the last five head to head meetings between these two rivals ended with fewer than three goals scored, the Under 2.5 goals FT bet does look attractive at the 2.30 odds.
As for the outcome, we like the draw at the 3.75 odds. The visitors are in a better shape these days, but they have a dreadful in the history of away clashes against Sion.
