Tip Reasoning

  • FC Zurich have scored at least two goals in seven of their last ten Super League away games.
  • FC Zurich have scored at least two goals in four of the last six head-to-head meetings between the clubs.
  • Basel have conceded at least two goals in three of their last five league games.

Basel must be at their best to deny FCZ the title

FC Zurich travel to St. Jakob-Park in search of the point that would clinch their 13th title and confirm their emergence as the new power club in Swiss football. André Breitenreiter’s side are known for their fast-paced attacking play and have been able to paper over any cracks in their defence by simply outscoring their opponents this season.

That’s unlikely to change when they face Basel, who have been their closest challengers since FCZ took over at the top of the table in November. It will be a powder keg atmosphere inside the ground where Basel fans will be baying for their side to prolong FCZ’s wait and keep their own remote hopes alive.

But this has the makings of a day of reckoning for Rotblau, who have been getting away with some iffy displays in recent weeks. Opponents Luzern had 30 shots in total during their 3-0 defeat at St. Jakob-Park last weekend and they missed a penalty at 1-0 down that could have changed the course of the contest. Basel were held to draws by ninth-placed Sion and fifth-placed St Gallen in the two preceding games, so they appear to have some defensive issues to sort out.

Visitors have verve to grab two goals 

Breitenreiter’s boys should expose any flaws here and have enough attacking talent to maintain their recent good run of scoring two goals or more, which has occurred in seven of their last ten Super League fixtures. It’s also something they have managed to do in four of their last six head-to-head meetings with Basel, of which they have won three and drawn one.

We’re expecting Basel to find the back of the net as well at some point as FCZ rarely maintain clean sheets for long and are picking a 2-1 away win as the likeliest full-time result. Zurich average 1.9 goals for and 0.9 goals against across their last ten away Super League matches.
