Team News: FC Luzern
It seems likely that Die Leuchten could make use of the 4-3-1-2 system featuring Marius Müller, Mohamed Dräger, Marco Burch, Luca Jaquez, Martin Frydek, Marvin Schulz, Ardon Jasari, Filip Ugrinic, Samuele Campo, Marko Kvasina and Asumah Abubakar.
Team News: Servette FC
Servette FC manager Alain Geiger has some current player fitness concerns. Boubacar Fofana (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Boris Cespedes (Unknown Injury), Malik Sawadogo (Torn Meniscus), Nils Pédat (Unknown Injury) and Papu Mendes (Unknown Injury) are not able to play.
We’re of the thinking that Les Grenats will likely elect for a 4-3-3 formation by sending out Jeremy Frick, Moritz Bauer, Nicolas Vouilloz, Vincent Sasso, Gael Clichy, Timothe Cognat, Chris Bedia, David Douline, Miroslav Stevanovic, Alexis Antunes and Kastriot Imeri.
We’re inclined to think that FC Luzern have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, Servette FC could well struggle to get shooting opportunities but we do fancy them managing to get on the scoresheet here.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for FC Luzern at the end of the match.
