Grasshoppers vs Zurich: Preview & Prediction

This weekend the first league in Switzerland started, and on Sunday we have the match between Grasshoppers and Zurich, two bands targeting the European Cups. The odds on sports betting are very balanced and the balance is obvious. That is why I will not bet on the final result and I chose a goal bet. The argument you will find below in the article.


He disappointed last season, finishing only in eighth place. Expectations are much higher in the new championship.
He brought good players in the summer, like Jeffren, Lindner or Marco Djuricin, and can be said to have strengthened.
He comes after two friendly wins, with Sochaux and PSV.
He did look good on the offensive stage in preparation, but it was seen that defense is the big problem.
Marko Basic and Runar Mar Sigurjonsson have some medical problems and will miss.


He has promoted this year after not having an opponent in the second run in Switzerland.
He did not do well during the training and only won two of the six friendly games.
He has won many goals and, like the opponent, seems to have problems on the defensive phase.
He invested in acquisitions, bringing good players like Michael Frey or Pa Modou.
There are some real problems with this game and it seems they will miss Armin Alesevic, Mirlind Kryeziu, Sangone Sarr and Antonio Marchesano.
