Grasshopper vs Lugano – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

This is Grasshoppers’ first game of the league season. Can they make a winning start in front of their own fans? Find out with our Grasshopper vs Lugano preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Backing a draw

Grasshopper might not have opened their league campaign yet but, one thing is for sure, morale is already low. They’ve lost three of their last five matches and have won just three in their last 10. Thankfully for them, Lugano are hardly flying either; they’ve also lost three of their past five games. With all that in mind, we think they might cancel each other out and share the points. That’s exactly the bet we’re making here – draw.

Both teams to score

Wins might be hard to come by for both Grasshopper and Lugano right now but their games have been loaded with goals. We see that theme continuing here. Grasshopper have gone north of the 2.5 goals mark in three of their last five games whilst Lugano have only seen two of their previous five fall under the same marker. Game averages are looking good as well with Grasshopper averaging 3.6 goals per game and Lugano 4.0. If you were feeling really ballsy, you could push the 3.5 market but given the last head to head saw three goals, we’re opting for the slightly less risky bet.

We could see a fair few goals

Our last tip is that the game sees both teams score, which we guess I kind of obvious given we’ve backed over 2.5 goals and the match ending level in the previous tips. It’s not a guy instinct bet though. Here are the stats; Grasshopper and Lugano have seen both teams score in three of their respective last five games. In head to head terms, just one of their last 10 clashes have featured a clean sheet a that’s bonkers!

Grasshopper vs Lugano: Team News

Grasshopper

Grasshopper endured a difficult campaign last season and, based on the way their pre-season has shaped up, this campaign could be another long one for them. They’re yet to kick their 2022/23 season off with this game being their first as they play catch up on the teams that started last week. Can Christian Herc turn in a big display in the middle of the park to help them make a good start?

Lugano

Unlike their hosts, Lugano enjoyed a reasonable campaign last year even with the fact it ultimately ended in disappointment as they missed out on the top three. If they intend on going one better than that this season then, simply put, they need to be winning games like this. Can they deliver that? If they do, it’s likely that Zan Celar has played a sizeable role in the game.
