Sion vs Zurich by Sunshine
After having lost in a derby game away to Basel 1:4, Sion is standing third at the table with five points less than league leaders Grasshoppers. Sion didn't enter that well in the game, but still found themselves being 1:1 at the half-time, however they completely failed to make competitive second half-time, conceding three goals.
In that game, Sion presented once again two faces, one good in the first half-time when they didn't allow the hosts to create too much chances and one very poor, similar to the weakest teams in the league. However, the coach has expressed his believe that the team has enough experience and stability to overcome this defeat bounce back with another win.
French striker Mathieu Manset is injured, while defender Andre Marques suffers a knock and is doubtful and Vilmos Vanczak another defender should be available although he was injured last Saturday and didn't play in the midweek.

Zurich, on the other side, is completely losing it's form and it simply looks like they can't turn the things around at this moment. They are coming from two consecutive losses at home (against Grasshoppers and St Gallen), without scored a single goal in previous three matches in the league.
They are having only two victories in ten matches, currently holding eight position and it looks like they will still some time in order to improve. In both previous matches, just like in most of the games this season, they were ineffective in attack, without much of a creativity in the midfield and didn't looked like a team overall, paying for their defensive mistakes easily. Mathieu Beda, central defender is out once again, while important offensive player Chermiti still didn't recover. In addition, midfielder Chiumento will also be missing from today's game.
Neither of this two teams are in a perfect form. However, Sion is worried about their title race, while the guests are having problems being competitive against any team in the league, this is the difference between these two. Experienced and quality hosts should prevail in this one and get back to their winning ways.
