All FC Zürich v FC Sion match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
FC Zürich will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 1-3 Super League loss in their previous game against St Gallen.
The only scorer from FC Zürich was Benjamin Kololli (16'). Jordi Quintillà (2'), Cedric Itten (48') and Jérémy Guillemenot (75') scored for St Gallen.
It has been all too rare in recent times where FC Zürich have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Der Stadtclub have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 14 goals along the way. That being said, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern will be replicated here in this game.
