Thun was set as a slight favorite away to Sion last weekend, but the side didn’t manage to present themselves that concrete. Hosts took an early lead, already in the third minute, with the guests trying to chase and got the equalizer but conceded deservedly towards the end again. Despite the defeat, Thun remained at third position with just two points behind Basel.
St Gallen was also slight favorite away to Grasshoppers last weekend and also suffered 2:1 defeat. Their hosts entered the game in a great way, taking the double lead inside the first fifteen minutes, with the visitors spending the rest of the game trying to catch the result. Overall, they were far better than Grasshoppers but had very little luck converting their huge number of chances into goals.
The home side should miss forward Hunziker (6/0), while a couple of players remain long-term absentees without influence so far. Visiting side misses forward Itten (7/4), plus also a couple of long-term absentees too.
Both teams will be looking for improvement here and shouldn’t be satisfied with a point. Thun plays far more open in front of own fans and with St Gallen knowing that they can’t stand behind the ball, it’s something that promises quite an open game here. Neither of the defensive lineups are to be trusted a lot. St Gallen can’t be again that unlucky upfront.
