Zurich hosts Lugano in round 1 of Swiss Super League. The match will be played on Sunday, July 21st at Letzigrund Stadion (Zürich)
Zurich held the last season far from perfect, and the team fought for the Euro-Cup zone in the first half of the championship but finished on the 7th line of the standings. Although it could easily get into the zone of playoff matches (a special decline was in the second half of the championship on the background of fatigue). In the upcoming season, getting into Euro cups will surely be of the main goals of the club (considering the failure of last season). In the offseason, the head coach, Magnin, tried to correct a lot of shortcomings in the team game and first of all in the defense, but judging by the friendly matches played, the players still make mistakes. Zurich suffered 2 losses in 3 games, conceding 8 goals. However, it is worth noting the victory in the last match over RB Leipzig (1-4).

Lugano held the previous season more successfully, unlike its opponent, having finished in 3rd place and provided itself with a place in the Europa League. So, the team is waiting for a hard and exhausting season. Therefore, players should not spend all the accumulated forces at the very beginning of the season, especially since they have to meet with Thun, Young Boys and Basel in the first rounds of the championship. It is worth noting that Lugano is one of the best teams of Switzerland in terms of the defensive game, losing to the same Young Boys and Basel. The club did not impress in friendly games, having played 2 matches in a draw and suffered 1 defeat to Inter (1-2).
Despite the fact that both teams are excellent in the attack, I still prefer to put on Under 3 goals scored. Both Lugano and Zurich (despite the failure in the last season) are the main competitors in the fight for the Euro-Cup zone. Therefore, they will not rush forward, preferring tactical football + it is unlikely that the teams will give all the best in the first round. I have already mentioned that the visitors act well in defense. Zurich surely did the work on the mistakes of the past season, and it will be more restrained and organized in the defense. Therefore, I do not think that there will be many goals in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals scored
