In what could prove to be a battle of two sides struggling with some glaring defensive issues, St. Gallen will make the trip to Zurich on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, suffering late heartbreak against Neuchâtel Xamax last weekend and conceding a 94th-minute equalizer, Zurich are still searching for their first win of the season. Freefalling to the foot of the table and increasing pressure coming on Head Coach Ludovic Magnin, many around the Stadion Letzigrund are becoming concerned by Zurich’s defensive issues. Along with shipping a pair of goals last weekend, they have recorded just one clean sheet in any of their last nine appearances, including a 6-0 hammering against Borussia Dortmund last month.

As for the visitors, while St. Gallen may have put in an impressive display in their 3-2 defeat against defending champions Young Boys last weekend, there still remains some glaring defensive issues that need resolving in Peter Zeidler’s camp. Along with shipping a trio of goals on home soil last time out, they are yet to record a single clean sheet this season, including their own 4-1 hammering against Dortmund in last month’s pre-season friendly. With six of the last seven matches between the two sides seeing over 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing another lively encounter at the Stadion Letzigrund in midweek.
