Last weekend, the Swiss Super League started the second half of the season. However, the snow chaos in the Alps did not stop at the Swiss. Three games had to be canceled. In Lugano, the scenery was more like an idyllic landscape, where Nordic ski competitions are held. So it comes on Wednesday now to the catch-up game between FC Lugano and FC Thun. The snow masses should now be so far under control that this encounter can be started.
For Lugano it continues directly with the relegation battle. The team of Fabio Celestini is currently in eighth place. Up to the direct descent is the upholstery currently six counters, but up to the relegation place there are only two points.
With a win, the FCL could get some air. However, with FC Thun, a team that is very ambitious in this season and is led in the ranking in third place. With a win, the Thuner could put FC Basel in second place up to two points. The Europa League must be the goal, but maybe the FC Thun can even knock on the door to the premier class. In the match between Lugano and Thun, the prediction for an away win should be clear from the table. However, both teams have not completed a game after the winter break. Therefore, it is difficult to estimate the current shape. Before the kick-off between Lugano and Thun lower odds are offered on a success of the home side, the bookmakers assume that the encounter is made very open overall. Both teams are hoping for a successful start to the new year and, in difficult conditions, want to start the first three. The kick-off for the 19. Gameday of the Super League between FC Lugano and FC Thun at Stadio Cornaredo takes place on 06.02.2019 at 20:00.
Lugano – Statistics & Current Form
The bargaining chip for FC Lugano in the relegation battle is home strength. But maybe Fabio Celestini’s team will be able to bring them around on Wednesday because the circumstances are not as common in Cornaredo as they usually are. Therefore, it will be difficult to keep the fortress on Wednesday. In the last eight home games, there was only one defeat. That almost sounds as if the tip for the double chance 1X in the match between Lugano and Thun would sound promising. The preparation was reasonably successful, although it has to be said that the opponents did not have the highest level. Among other things, there was a 0-1 defeat against the German second division HSV. Nevertheless, one is in Lugano relatively optimistic. This is partly because of the fact that you could borrow with Armando Sadiku a high-caliber from Levante. However, this one was injured for a long time and might be more likely to put his own recovery in the foreground than to give everything for the FCL. We will see.
Before the winter break, it was not really round at FC Lugano. For six games there was no victory in the Super League. Descent fear paired with snow and ice in the stadium are not good conditions to experience an intoxicating football festival.
” I met with every club where I was. ” – Armando Sadiku
But maybe it is actually Armando Sadiku who makes the difference if he is allowed to play from the beginning. The Albanian international does not lack self-confidence anyway, because he assumes that he will also meet for Lugano and his career will get off to a good start again from the summer in Spain. Another top scorer is, however, in the truest sense, still on ice. Marc Janko will have to watch hurt. However, the Austrian should be the only failure that matters. Otherwise, only the substitute keeper struck, with Coach Fabio Celestini can probably live quite well with it.
Expected formation of Lugano:
Baumann – Covilo, Maric, Sulmoni – Piccinocchi, Sabbatini, Daprela, Mihajlovic – Brlek, Vecsel – Sadiku – Coach: Celestini
Last matches of Lugano:
- 26.01.2019 – Lugano Vs. Innsbruck 1: 0 (friendly)

Thun – Statistics & Current Form
What would only be possible if the FC Thun in the Super League could also build on home strength abroad. In strange places the team of Marc Schneider leaves far too many points. That could make the difference between Champions League and Europa League in the end. However, the tuners have no lofty goals anyway. The premier class is one size too big and Marc Schneider makes it clear that his team could well be able to qualify for international competition. This goal was spent after a relatively successful first round. However, the actors at the FCT know that this goal will only be possible with hard work and total dedication. Maybe we will experience this attitude on Wednesday in Lugano. It is clear that Thun must act differently than in the last away games in the first round. In the past, there were three defeats in series.
At first glance, that does not sound like it would make much sense in the game between Lugano and Thun to make a tip on a threesome score. However, in the defeats was very close and especially recently at the champion in Bern, the Thuner in the 2: 3 defeat in good shape. In addition, the preparation was very neat, so we think that the node will soon burst again.
“We believe in our qualities and know that fourth place is possible. Knowing that it will not be a self-runner. ” – Marc Schneider
Lugano could be just the right patch in the outer conditions, although the last statistics do not speak for the fact that the team of Marc Schneider successfully starts in the second half. The mood is noticeably good and the FCT will do everything to be represented internationally in the upcoming season. Therefore, we consider the duels between Thun and Lugano the quotas rather than secondary, but can imagine that the guests outgrow themselves. Personnel looks good with the tuna. Timo Righetti and Mauro Constanzo will be the only injury-related losses.
Expected formation of Thun:
Faivre – Facchinetti, Rodrigues, Gelmi, Glarner – Hediger – Schwizer, Stillhart, Karlen, Spielmann – Sorgic – Trainer: Schneider
Last matches of Thun:
