Zürich and St. Gallen measure forces at Stadion Letzigrund, in a match for the 6th day of the Super League. The history of direct confrontations played in this stadium is favorable to the home team, which in the last 9 games won 3, drew 5 and lost 1. But the last time these two teams played a game in this stadium, in 25‑ 05-2019, for the Super League, the two teams drew for (1‑1). S. Khelifi (50 ‘) scored the goals of the match, for Zürich, and J. Guillemenot (16′), for St. Gallen. Particular attention is needed for the home / away condition, since both teams have significantly different results at home and abroad.
The home team is currently in the 10th position, with 2 points won, after 2 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Zion by (3‑1). In the last game, he tied at home against Neuchâtel Xamax by (2-2). This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses as a visitor, with 14 goals scored and 31 suffered; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in his stadium, with 22 goals scored and 24 suffered. In their last 10 home games, Zürich records 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses.
For this competition, he did not win any of the last 4 games. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 3 of the last 4 games for this competition, so he has not been very strong defensively.
Zürich arrives in this game before the sixth day without a victory in this edition of the Swiss championship, at the end of four rounds. After a defeat a week ago in the visit to the house of Sion, by 3-1, Ludovic Magnin’s team was surprised at home last weekend, when he drew 2-2 with Neuchâtel Xamax. It was Zurich who went ahead after 44 minutes of play, by Marco Schönbächler, but allowed Neuchâtel to score the tie at 63 ‘. At a time when Zurich already played in numerical superiority, Assan Ceesay made the 2-1 at 77 ‘, but the team failed to control the game and finally suffered the tie at 90’ + 4 ‘playing against 10.
St. Gallen :
After 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses, the away team is currently in 8th position, with 4 points won. In his last game, he lost with Young Boys at home by (2‑3), after in the previous game having tied out, in a match against Neuchâtel Xamax, by (1‑1). This is a team that curiously has been stronger outside than at home, since in the last 30 matches it records 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in his stadium. In its last 10 away games, St. Gallen records 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered at least one goal in each of the last 4 games, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 3 of the last 4 games for this competition.
After the first four rounds of the championship, Sankt Gallen does not occupy the position he wanted, although the main objective for this season is maintenance. The team only managed to win a game, curiously on its visit to Basel, one of the theoretically more complicated games it has had so far. Two games ago, Sankt Gallen drew 1-1 with Neuchâtel Xamax and ended up losing at home last Saturday against the Young Boys champions. Despite having suffered two goals in half an hour, Peter Zeidler’s team gave a good response, scoring 2-2 in the second half, but would see Young Boys reach the winning goal in the final minutes of the game.
