St Gallen, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Swiss Cup success vs Servette FC.
Their latest results highlight the fact that quality has been evident in the St Gallen rearguard. Espen have given the opposition little, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous 6 clashes standing at 4.
