Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Winterthur v FC Wil 1900 game (plus the best game odds).
Winterthur will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 3-0 Swiss Cup loss in their previous game against FC Aarau.
It has been all too rare in recent games that Winterthur haven’t conceded. The reality is that Winterthur have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 11 goals during that time.
FC Wil 1900
After tasting defeat last time out to FC Thun in Challenge League action, FC Wil 1900 and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
It is worth noting that FC Wil 1900 have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous six clashes, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 3. In those matches, Wil have also seen the collective goal tally of opposing teams equal 10. Such a pattern might not be continued into this match, however.

Etnik Nezaj (Unknown Injury), Julian Roth (Unknown Injury), Raphael Spiegel (Unknown Injury), Alexander Muci (Unknown Injury), Kevin Zeferino Costinha (Unknown Injury) and Michael Gonçalves (Unknown Injury) won’t be available for Winterthur gaffer Yannick Schwery. Roberto Alves will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: FC Wil 1900
Wil manager Tomasz Matejcek has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Argtim Ismaili (Hip Injury), Serkan Izmirlioglu (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Luan Abazi (Unknown Injury) and Ajet Sejdija (Torn Ligament) are those who can’t be considered. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Jan Kronig and Mergim Brahimi.
We’re inclined to think that FC Wil 1900 will have to work hard as a team to register a score against this Winterthur team who we reckon should score one, at least.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Winterthur at the conclusion of the game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
