Vaduz - Schaffhausen Prediction, Picks and Taips
There are still two games to be played in the Swiss Challenger League. Behind the virtually established promoted Lausanne-Sport, a hot duel for position two has flared up between FC Vaduz and the Grasshoppers from Zurich. Only the vice champion gets an additional chance in the relegation to fight for the right to start for the Super League season 2020/21.
Currently, the Liechtensteiners have the better starting position because they are one meter ahead of the GCZ in the classification and therefore have everything in their own hands. Two wins in the remaining two games are required. If we believe the odds of the best bookmakers between Vaduz and Schaffhausen, then a threesome on Thursday evening should only be a matter of form for the favorites.
The team of coach Mario Frick is in top form after six unbeaten matches in a row, five of which could even be won. The red-whites currently do not give the impression that they are still taking second place on the home straight, but caution should be exercised in front of the coming opponent.
Although the yellow-blacks only ranked ninth in the Challenge League, they have recently turned out to be an uncomfortable opponent. The last direct duel against the Liechtensteiners to date ended in a draw and the matches with other top clubs usually ended scarce. Nevertheless, the prediction of the home win is the first option between Vaduz and Schaffhausen.
FC Vaduz dreams of returning to the Swiss House of Lords. The Red-Whites were last represented in the Super League in the 2016/2017 season; now the renewed ascent beckons, which nobody would have really expected in the run-up to this season, also considering the sixth place in the previous year. It is also a fact that Coach Frick's team still has a few hurdles to overcome.
Two matchdays before the end, the Liechtensteiners, who are regular guests in the Europa League due to their regular successes in the national cup competition, even made the leap into the third qualifying round there in 2019/2020 and lost 0: 6 to Eintracht Frankfurt after the return leg pulled, one point ahead of Grasshoppers Zurich in second place, which would entitle them to participate in the playoffs against the ninth in the top division.
Two threes on Thursday at home against Schaffhausen and on Sunday in Kriens would definitely be enough to fix the vice championship. If we look at the latest results, the red and white can be attested to a very stable form. The last loss was against direct competitor GCZ earlier this month; Subsequently, the second division remained unbeaten six times in a row (five wins, one draw).
In addition to the good condition, home strength can also serve as an argument to give a tip on the home win between Vaduz and Schaffhausen. The runner-up was able to win ten of the 17 home games in total. In addition, no other club in the Challenge League scores more goals than FCV (42).
In general, betting on one or the other goal with Liechtenstein participation was not a bad idea lately. The "BTS" would have gone through in twelve consecutive games. In nine of the eleven games after the restart, Cicek, Sutter and Co. marked at least two of their own goals. Four of the seven victories after the forced break were also more than one goal different, which in turn makes a corresponding handicap tip seem lucrative.
The most important insight for FC Schaffhausen this season is that there is actually a club with FC Chiasso that has even fewer points and therefore has to move into third place. The yellow-blacks pulled their heads out of the loop in ninth place, but will still have to turn a few stones in the analysis of this season, so as not to disappoint again in 2020/21.
The largest construction site is undoubtedly the offensive. The team of ex-professional Murat Yakin has only 31 goals in 34 games so far. For comparison: Even the bottom of the line from Chiasso marked almost ten goals more than the Central Swiss, who will do better in a row in the seventh year of the second division than they have since 2011.
Although we are a long way from hinting at the odds of a surprise coup by the underdog between Vaduz and Schaffhausen, the guests should not be completely underestimated. In the eleven games after the restart, the Yakin-Elf suffered five losses, but only got twice with more than one goal difference under the wheels. The FCS played well against both the leaders Lausanne (0: 1) and a week ago against Grasshoppers Zurich (3: 5).
However, the bottom line is that there are still no arguments for a recommendation to the Schaffhausen company, for which it is only about the golden pineapple and which were last won abroad in early February. The most recent three away games have all been lost. Overall, the yellow-blacks were the losers in nine of the 17 guest appearances. The 14 goals scored also mean the lowest value of all Challenge League clubs. To make matters worse, captain Bunjaku, Mujcic and Bislimi are three central pillars with a yellow lock.
