Team News: FC Vaduz
Lars Traber (unknown injury), Cédric Gasser (Shoulder injury), Milan Gajic (Cruciate ligament tear), Elvin Ibrisimovic (Knee injury) and Nicolas Hasler (Knee injury) won’t be playing for FC Vaduz boss Martin Stocklasa. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Sandro Wieser and Allen Njie.
Team News: FC Sion
FC Sion has to choose a team with limited availability. Itaitinga (Cruciate ligament injury) and Alexandros Safarikas (unknown injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Théo Bouchlarhem is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our thinking is that FC Vaduz would be disappointed if they were not to put a goal past this FC Sion outfit, however a single goal might not quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re therefore expecting both teams to score in a 1-2 winning margin for FC Sion by the conclusion of the game. Expecting it to be very competitive.
