FC Zurich vs FC Thun Prediction & Match Preview

FC Zurich vs FC Thun
Switzerland – Super League
Date: Monday, 3 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Letzigrund Stadion.

The home team is fortunate that they picked up 12 wins this season. If they were in the present situation throughput they could be in the relegation zone right now. With a losing streak going on for the hosts the away team could reduce the point’s difference after this game.

This was a season of disappointment for Thun. The team that was fourth last season is just a point away from relegation right now. They cannot afford to lose this one and if they do Sion will take their place. So this is a do or die game for the team from the Bernese Oberland.

FC Zurich vs FC Thun: Head-to-head (h2h)

Zurich has three wins and a loss in five previous clashes with this opposition.

  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games across all venues.
  • The hosts have a three match winning streak going in head to head games at this ground.
  • They have won four and lost once in five previous meetings here.
  • Four of those five games had more than 2.5 goals in total.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in three of those five matches as well.
  • The home team is on a three match losing streak at home right now.
  • The visitors are on a six match winless run in matches on the road.

FC Zurich vs FC Thun: Prediction

The hosts have lost all six of their latest league matches on the trot. They have lost to teams like Sion who are in the relegation zone also. The three recent home matches also saw them lose to teams at the top of the table. This makes them one of the most inconsistent teams in the competition.

At the same time the away team is fighting for survival and are on an unbeaten streak right now. They have won recently against teams like Gallen and Servette. So I think they will have the upper hand in this upcoming tie.

Even though the hosts are losing consecutive games they will get chance to score against this opposition. Thun has one of the weakest back lines in this season with 64 goals conceded in 35 matches. Since both teams are having troubles in defence, I think we can see goals at both ends of the field.
