Lugano vs Grasshoppers (By: DamirJ)

Lugano didn't manage to get a three-pointer away to Xamax last Wednesday evening, but neither deserved so. They did take the lead, however, Xamax looked far more concrete and simply better in the second halftime.

The hosts have maybe deserved even more than just a point in a 1:1 game. Still, Lugano has a great chance to seal the Europa League ticket with a victory here in the last round.

Goalkeeper Da Costa (14/0), midfielder Piccinocchi (17/0), forwards Carlinhos Junior (31/13) and Janko (8/0) are injured.

Grasshoppers surely can't wait for the season to be over since they have four consecutive defeats and have already confirmed their relegation a few weeks ago.

The atmosphere is below par and surely can't go any better, as they come from a 0:3 home loss to Sion. They have completely deserved the relegation being really the poorest team all season long.

The guests should be missing more than a couple of players, including goalkeeper Lindner (34/0), defenders Zesiger (20/0), Rhyner (20/1), Ajeti (16/2), Nathan (9/1), Cvetkovic (27/1) and midfielder Kamber (15/0).

As already said, the guests are simply waiting for the season to end and such an approach can't grant them any positive outcome.

Even with some motive, they would still be underdog, while with the current circumstances home win looks so likely that a two goals difference should really be a minimum. Thirteen conceded goals in the last three rounds isn't a coincidence.

Honestly, I already feel "defeated" here with such odds change.

Cause from some reason, the odds have gone up to 2.48 at the moment. It sucks when you know you took the bet at such a wrong time :( Not sure about the reason why the odds skyrocketed, from "sports" point of view, I would still take the bet.

Your analysis on the match gave me a strong mind to stake on it... I only played them straight win. And they are the only game I’m scared of in my slip. I hope they win.
