Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Servette FC v St Gallen can be seen below (including the best match odds).
Servette FC, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-0 Super League victory against FC Luzern.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Servette FC have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Les Grenats have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 7 goals during that time. That sort of trend might not follow through here, of course.
Analysis of their past results shows that Servette FC:
- have not registered a win against St Gallen in their last 10 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 8 home league matches. A very good run at home.
In their last fixture, St Gallen drew 3-3 in the Super League match with Lugano.
In as many as 6 of the previous 6 games involving St Gallen, a minimum of three goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match within that time is 4, with the number of goals averaged by Espen working out to 2. It will be interesting to see if that trend will be sustained in this game.
Ahead of this clash, St Gallen haven't been beaten by Servette FC in away games against them for the last 4 matches in the league. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
