Match date: 16.05.2024

In the 36th round of the Swiss Super League's championship group on May 16, 2024, a match will take place between Lugano and Winterthur. The home team aims to secure second place, which would allow them to start in the Champions League qualifiers. Meanwhile, the guests have not yet guaranteed a spot in the top 5 and the opportunity to go to the Conference League.

Key statistics and trends:

  • Lugano had an unbeaten streak of 11 official matches before their slip-up against St. Gallen.
  • Winterthur lost four consecutive matches.
  • The most common scoreline between the clubs is 2-1 in favor of Lugano (8 times).
  • Lugano leads at halftime in 36% of matches, while Winterthur does so in 27%.

Lugano - Form analysis: Slowed down at the wrong time.

The "Bianconeri" had an excellent spring record, only dropping points against Winterthur with a draw since early March. At the end of April, the team confidently defeated Sion 2-0 away in the cup semifinal. However, they unexpectedly lost at home to St. Gallen, which worsened their position in the league - they missed out on second place. Nevertheless, they managed to win away against Young Boys in the last round, reviving the intrigue.

Winterthur - Form analysis: Noticeable improvement this season.

The "Red and Whites" hadn't made it to the Super League for 44 years until 2022. Initially, they were just one point ahead of Sion, finishing second from last. Now, they have finished the regular championship in fifth place, with a chance to hold onto this position and qualify for the Conference League. However, it seems they lack the strength for effective competition. This is evident from their defeat in the cup semifinals against Servette and losses in recent rounds. Their 1-3 loss to Zurich was their third consecutive defeat.
