Zurich vs St Gallen by Sunshine
Zurich is coming from a 0:1 defeat at home against big rivals from Grasshopers, which was their first loss in mutual games after eighteen consecutive matches at home with no loss.
The team didn't look fluent at all, without will to fight against their rivals and the coach had to suffer many critics after the game as it looks like time is running against him slowly. Team looks like without homogeneity, without confidence and without any kind of automation in their play - they simply seem to be far away from the teams that are competing for a title this season. Still, it's early in the season and although they have nine points out of nine games, they still can improve during the season.
Important central defender Mathieu Beda is out following his injury last weekend, just like offensive player Amine Chermiti who also won't appear in tonight's game.

St Gallen, on the other hand, is still flying high early in the season as they currently find themselves first at the table and are still the only team without a lost game in this year's championship.
The teams seems to be in a perfect form as they are coming from a 2:0 home win over Servette which was their fifth consecutive win, including a cup game victory 7:0 over amateur team last weekend. Furthermore, their defense seems to be rock solid as they have conceded only one goal in these five matches, against probably the best squad in the country - Bassel. Whole team seems to be in a very good form, looking unstoppable at the moment with very aggressive approach in every game. Guests will be boosted with the return of midfielder Regazzoni, while defender Montandon will be the only serious absentee for this game.
Open game is expected here as St Gallen is flying high at the moment and have nothing to lose, while the hosts will surely have to adapt attacking approach in order to stop their poor run. Both teams are missing one important defender and with the attacking approach expected, those odds (almost evens) surely have a value in most of the most of the matches in Swiss championship.
