Schaffhausen vs Rapperswil-Jona
Schaffhausen finished in 4th last season with a total of 16-3-17 and 64-59 goal difference. Home record last season: 8-2-8. The team from northern Switzerland had a impressive run in April/May last season with 8 straight wins and 25-3 (!) goal difference, but lost the two last matches of the season vs champions Zurich & Wil. Are now ready for a new season, and are probably one of the contenders to get promoted this season. The team have impressed a lot in their friendlies this summer, with 3-2-0 and a impressive 1-2 win vs Zurich last week.
Rapperswil-Jona won the 1.League Promotion (3rd level) in a controlled way last season, with 5 points down to second placed Kriens. They were unbeaten at home all season, but wasnt that good on their travels, away record last season: 6-5-4 and 24-20 goal difference. This summer the team have played 4 friendly matches and only managed to win the first one, losing the last 3 without scoring a single goal.
* In 8 of 8 Schaffhausen last wins last season, they were leading into the break.
Schaffhausen will win this match and get a good start of the season, I’m quite sure of that. They deserve their favourite status, specially after winning 3 of 3 friendlies against Super League teams lately. I think chances are big for them to get goals scored before half time, so thats the pick in my search for value.
