FC Basel vs FC Sion (Pick, Prediction, Preview) Preview



FC Basel

The team of Urs Fischer has also picked up the championship title in Switzerland almost without any counter-attack this season. Currently the Baselers separate no less than 17 points from the first chase from Berne. Accordingly, one might think that the air in the favorite is already something outside. And yet the team punishes us week after week. Although the team have only achieved a draw twice, the Fischer-Schützers still hold almost unbelievable 24 victories in 32 games this season. The only defeat was against the Young Boys on the 17th day (1: 3). In the St. Jakob Park, however, the table leader is still without defeat. However, last but not least, defensively was no longer at its best. Four games in a row conceded Basel at least one goal, three of them were even at least two. Last weekend, they had to contend with a 3: 3 win against Nachzügler Thun, before 2: 2 against FC Lugano. Against Thun, Basel made a two-time deficit and then missed a 3: 2 lead in the very last second. Nevertheless, the catch-up shows that the remaining seasons are not easily taken.

FC Sion

One thing is quite clear: for FC Sion on Thursday, much more than for FC Basel. The team from Sebastien Fournier could fix a full success in St. Jakob-Parkplatz three and thus a starting place in the Europa League. Confidence for the difficult task was gained on the last day of the match, when FC Lugano were forced into the knee with a 2-0 win over FC Lugano. However, it was the only victory of FC Sion in the past weeks. They were defeated by Bern (0: 1), Thun (1: 2), and even by their current one-man from Lausanne (1: 2). Especially in tight games, the Fournier elite seem to play a nerve on a regular basis, because two of the three matches have been conceded to a late contender. In addition, they were particularly susceptible to high balls. The winner for Bern came after a free-kick, that of FC Thun from a header in the very last seconds of the game. It is quite possible that Sion is doing a system change on Thursday, not in the offensive 4-3-3-start, but waiting and acting on counter.


To defy a home game in Basel with such a high number of failures is similar to the home strength of the old and new champion probably a Herculesaufgabe, especially since Basel itself his record in the last games probably hardly be left. We therefore do not expect Sion to be able to take anything with him.
