Luzern vs Zurich by MrDomez
> FC Lucerne
The lost their last game 0-3 away to Basel but played reasonably well, at least the first half. Didn't allow any chance defensively and had some very promising attacks on the counter. Very well could/should have taken the lead, M. Schneuwly missed their best chance only hitting the post from 6m out after a low cross from the right side.
Everything went downhill fast after Basel's quick score to open the second half, they were unable to react and conceeded two more on a doubtfull penalty and a counter attack at the end.
No suspensions or injuries of note.
> FC Zurich
Poor, dreadfull, horrible, all good choices to describe the game and whole situation after yesterday's home loss against Sion (0-1). Zurich had possesion but struggled throughout the game to create anything, even after having a one man advantage for 20 minutes. Sion seemed pretty content sitting back and playing on counters and with 10 men they actually scored after a defensive mistake by Brunner and we're able to hold on till the end.
New signing for Khershakov didn't see any balls and was completely taken out of the game, even worse they don't have anything on their bench after getting rid of forwards Gavranovic and Chermiti.
Furthermore they loaned forward Bunjako to direct rivals against relegation Vaduz, he scored twice last weekend and now Vaduz overtook Zurich on the table. sending him to Vaduz is one of the more questionable calls i can remember recently...WHY would you do that?!?!
Right defender Koch is suspended for this game.
Lucerne is the far better team, the loss at Basel is no shame and they will enter the game full of confidence. Zurich on the other hand is in crisis and full of doubt. I believe Lucerne will win this game pretty easily and was surprised by the (too) high odds when they were released today. Take this bet now because I expect the odds to drop during the week.
Score prediction: 2-0
Pick: FC Lucerne @1.97 at Pinnacle Sports (Interwetten @2.00)
PS: Betting can be frustrating sometimes, posted two bets last weekend, the right call on both but they didn't come through. But things will turn around soon and I feel very good about this bet.
