Zurich take on the visitors Winterthur in the round 1 match of Swiss Challenge League. The match will be played on Monday, July 25th.
Zurich had quite ambiguous last season. On one hand, the team won the Swiss Cup, on the other hand, Zurich had poor season in Super League, finishing only tenth with 34 points and 48-71 overall goal difference and relegating to the second league. Zurich played five club friendlies during this summer pre-season, taking two wins over Austria Lustenau (2-0) and Borussia Monchengladbach (2-1) and suffering three defeats to Altach, 0-2, Schaffhausen, 0-1 and Galatasaray, 0-3. The team is getting ready for Europa League start and the season in Challenge League.

Winterthur are the team from Challenge League mid-table and wasn’t battling for promotion in recent years. The team gained 43 points in 34 matches last season with 40-49 goal difference and finished only sixth. Today’s visitors took part in six sparring matches during pre-season, recording four wins, one draw and one defeat. However, the level of the opponents wasn’t high.
The opponents haven’t played a single official match before, facing one another only in friendlies. Honorable hosts of the match are definitely set to make the return to Super League within one season and we can expect them to start their path to the top division from match one.
Prediction for the match: Zurich to win.
