Rapperswil vs Servette Geneve prediction
Switzerland Challenge League
Rapperswil (9) vs Servette (1)
12 matches left this season and Rapperswil-Jona are placed 1 point above bottom team Chiasso (10). Total record is 7-3-14 with 31-39 in goal difference. After 2 straight solid victories, 2-0 vs Schaffhausen (8) & 4-0 vs Wil (4), they lost again last Saturday 2-1 away vs Kriens (6). The big majority of their points is coming from good performances at home, so expect them to give it a try against the leaders as well. Midfielder Cespedes & defender Severin injured.
Servette are flying high and are coming from crushing Schaffhausen (8) 6-1 at home. They have a gap of 8 points down to Lausanne (2) and are both the highest scoring team and lowest conceding team of the league. In other words, anything less than the promotion will be a huge disappointment. Total record is 14-6-4 with 54-21 in goal difference. Midfielders Ciccone & Rexhepi + attacking player Zenuni injured.
* This match ended 1-1 back in September, but Servette won the home match in December by 4-1
* 6 of last 7 Servette away matches ended with minimum 3 goals total
I think chances are good for goals in this match. Rapperswil knows that they are facing the by far best attacking team of the league, but should still give it a try taking in mind their situation in the bottom. Servette have conceded in 8 of their last 10 away matches, and it isnt really a problem for them because of their quality in attack. Over 3 goals total looks like a solid pick imo.
