Neuchatel Xamax vs Lugano (By: DamirJ)
Xamax suffered narrow 1:0 defeat away to Sion last Wednesday evening, even though the side actually gave a pretty decent performance.
They had some chances but conceded the goal in the third minute of added time for a very disappointing outcome after all. It was their second defeat in a row and they can't be very interested into two remaining rounds, with the play-out clashes making their destiny this season.
Lugano reacted well after a narrow loss away to Thun, which came after ten undefeated matches, as the team won 1:0 at home against St Gallen.
They scored very early and remaining slightly better during the clash, enough to get the three points deservedly. With a point more than fourth-placed Thun, anything but a victory here would be a negative outcome for them.
With Luzern surely being awarded that victory over Grasshoppers, Xamax might not be having that much of a competitive motive as it might look like. Lugano, on the other side, needs a victory to continue chasing that Europa League group stage ticket.
The visitors aren't a force when playing away from home, however, with Xamax having far more important matches to worry about, I can't see them digging it deep for this one either.
