    Lugano to enhance European hopes against Neuchatel Xamax
    2606

    On Wednesday night, Neuchatel Xamax host Lugano, in a game that could be crucial in the race for the Europa League spots and fight for survival in the Swiss Super League.

    Neuchatel Xamax are currently in the relegation play-off spot, but are just a point from the safety of eighth-place in the Swiss top-flight, although they are 12 points clear of the one relegation spot.

    Xamax have suffered two straight league defeats against Zurich and rivals Sion last time out in the league. Their recent Super League games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight league outings.

    The home sides league record on home soil has been inconsistent of late, as they have won just one of their last four matches. Their recent matches on home soil in the Super League have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals in three of their last four home games.

    Lugano are currently third place in the Swiss Super League. However, the visitors are just a point clear of both fourth-place Thun and Zurich in fifth. A victory in this clash would move Lugano one step closer to sealing a spot in the Europa League for next season.

    The visitors have been hard to beat in the Swiss top-flight of late, as they have suffered just one defeat in their last 12 league outings. Last time out in the league, Lugano recorded a 1-0 win over St. Gallen.

    Their recent Super League matches have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in 11 of their last 13 matches.

    Lugano have failed to win in four away games in the Swiss top-flight, although three of those winless matches have finished in draws.

    Forebet predicts that Lugano will enhance their hopes of sealing a Europa League spot for next season by recording a win in a high scoring clash.
