Thun Prediction – Can Thun raise their game?

With just 1 win out of their last 7 matches overall, Thun look to be up against it ahead of this 1st leg despite holding home advantage.

The one success during this recent period was a 3-1 win away at French side, Nice, in a pre-season friendly.

However, 4 defeats during this disappointing spell isn’t the sort of preparation that Thun would have liked prior to this important Europa League clash.

Losses to Lausanne Sport, Kriens, St Gallen and Basel, the latter being a defeat in the Swiss Super League, could spell difficulties for Thun in this 1st leg.

Recent results on home turf at their Stockhorn Arena have been pretty poor as well, as Thun have lost 5 of their last 6 in all competitions.

Home form in the Europa League though has been promising in previous campaigns as they’ve lost just 2 of their last 9 home ties.

However, their last appearance was 4 years ago, and they’ll be up against a strong Spartak Moscow outfit here.

Forward, Rapp (2 goals) looks the most likely for the home side in this 1st leg.

Spartak Moscow Prediction – Can Spartak Moscow get result on road?

The Russian visitors have also shown some ordinary form of late as they’ve managed just 1 win out of their last 5 matches in all competitions.

That win came in the shape of a 1-0 home win over Sochi in the Russian Premier League but results away from home have been poor in recent times.

3 defeats out of their last 4 matches on their travels include losses at Orenburg, Rostov (friendly) and Tambov, while drawing 2-2 at Rostov in the league.

Spartak Moscow finished in 5th place in the Russian Premier League last season which earned them a place in the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League.

They only lost 4 matches away from home in the domestic top flight, but results away from home in the Europa League have been unconvincing.

The Moscow outfit have registered just 2 wins out of their last 9 matches on their travels in the Europa League, but these were at Ajax and Athletic Bilbao.

3 defeats and 4 draws isn’t the end of the world for Spartak Moscow either, but they’ll be keen to end their 3-match run without scoring on the road here.


Key-Facts – Thun v Spartak Moscow

  • Thun have lost 5 of their last 6 at home in all competitions
  • Thun have lost just 2 of their last 9 home ties in the Europa League
  • Spartak Moscow have lost just 3 of their last 13 matches on the road in the EL


Betting Tips Verdict

Thun have been disappointing at home in recent times and Spartak Moscow have enough about them to avoid defeat here.
