Grasshoppers vs Luzern by Sunshine
Grasshoppers extended their winning run, which is now at six won games in a row, with a great victory over big local rivals Zurich 1:0. With that win, they currently occupy the second position making a great start in the league and with another three points possible here, they would approach the league leaders from St Gallen to only one point difference.
It was another determined and great performance from Grasshoppers players as they defended more than well for whole ninety minutes, that led them to success in a local derby. Their defense is one of the strongest parts of the team as they have conceded lowest number of goals alongside league leaders. In front of the derby game against St Gallen that will be played next Monday, Grasshoppers would surely like to settle another victory and try to get the first position after the next round.
Defensive midfielder Veroljub Salatic is doubtful for this game, just as midfielder Hajrovic, while two other players are also out but without a single minute this season and their miss won't have any impact on hosts performance.

Luzern, on the other side, is coming of another poor performance and loss, this time on the road to Laussane, loss that was their fifth since the beginning of the league. Having only one win in previous nine rounds and having only six points, they stand second from the bottom and it can be already said that they will have really hard time surviving this season.
It was another performance without any consistency, without creativity and without any fighting mentality as all of the players looked completely indifferent on the pitch. Guests will be without midfielders Renggli and Hochstrasser, just as important defender Sarr and right back Thiesson.
Grasshopers is deservedly favorite to win this game, even bigger than the odds represent. They found a way to win some of the matches this season even with just a solid performances, their defense works rock solid at the moment and there is no doubt that they should get the win here, probably without conceded goal.
