Team News: Servette FC
Malik Sawadogo (Torn Meniscus) and Boris Cespedes (Unknown Injury) are not available for Servette FC manager Alain Geiger.
We think that Les Grenats should use a 4-3-3 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Jeremy Frick, Moritz Bauer, Steve Rouiller, Yoan Severin, Gael Clichy, Timothe Cognat, David Douline, Ronny Rodelin, Miroslav Stevanovic, Chris Bedia and Patrick Pflucke.
Team News: Winterthur
Winterthur manager Bruno Berner has not got a full squad to pick from. Pascal Hammer (Head Injury) and Kevin Costinha (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game.
We’re of the thinking that Winterthur could decide to begin the game with a 4-3-3 system, starting Jozef Pukaj, Michael Gonçalves, Granit Lekaj, Yannick Schmid, Souleymane Diaby, Thibault Corbaz, Remo Arnold, Matteo Di Giusto, Samir Ramizi, Roman Buess and Francisco Rodríguez.
We’re of the view that Winterthur will need things to go their way to put one past this Servette FC team who should be able to grind out a win.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good tussle with a 1-0 winning score for Servette FC at the conclusion of the game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
