Team News: FC Sion
Wesley (Unknown Injury), Timothy Fayulu (Unknown Injury) and Arian Kabashi (Unknown Injury) will not be able to play for FC Sion boss Paolo Tramezzani. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Marquinhos Cipriano, Kader Keita, Vagner, Geoffroy Serey Dié and Ivan Martic.
We are thinking that FC Sion look set to make use of the 3-1-4-2 system for the game, utilising Kevin Fickentscher, Jan Bamert, Birama Ndoye, Loris Benito, Luca Zuffi, Dimitri Cavare, Baltazar, Anto Grgic, Itaitinga, Gaetan Karlen and Filip Stojilkovic.

FC Luzern boss Mario Frick has not got a full squad to pick from. Tsiy William Ndenge (Ill), Pascal Loretz (Shoulder Injury) and Thoma Monney (Ruptured cruciate ligament) will not be playing here. Filip Ugrinic will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We believe Die Leuchten seem likely to elect for a 4-3-1-2 formation, choosing Marius Mueller, Mohamed Draeger, Marco Burch, Denis Simani, Martin Frydek, Marvin Schulz, Ardon Jasari, Christian Gentner, Samuele Campo, Dejan Sorgic and A. Abubakar-Ankra.
In our opinion, FC Luzern are certainly able to score against this FC Sion team, however it isn’t expected to be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 win for FC Sion when the full-time whistle blows. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
