SCHAFFHAUSEN V THUN
FC Schaffhausen will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-1 Challenge League losing effort in their last game against Stade Lausanne-Ouchy.
It has been all too rare in recent times that FC Schaffhausen have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that FC Schaffhausen have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 9 goals on the way.
FC Thun come into this encounter following on from a 1-0 Swiss Cup win with the downing of Grasshopper Club Zürich in their most recent game.
Illustrating their appetite for productive encounters, goals have been seen as many as 21 times in the last six matches in which FC Thun have sent out their troops, giving a mean average of 3.5 goals each clash. Opposition teams have managed 8 of these goals. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
HELSINGBORGS V JONKOPINGS
Helsingborgs IF enter this match coming off the back of a 1-1 Superettan tied result against Trelleborgs FF.
In that match, Helsingborgs IF managed 49% possession and 18 shots on goal with 8 on target. The only player to score for Helsingborgs IF was Benjamin Acquah (75'). For their opponents, Trelleborgs FF got 9 shots at goal with 3 on target. Mattias Håkansson (89') scored for Trelleborgs FF.
Jörgen Lennartsson's Helsingborgs IF have celebrated scoring 9 times over their last six outings. The number of goals that have been scored against them in those same fixtures stands at 6.
After a losing effort in their last game against IFK Värnamo in Superettan action, Jönköpings Södra IF will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Jönköpings Södra IF had 45% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target. IFK Värnamo got 6 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Victor Eriksson (77') and Edvin Becirovic (93') scored for IFK Värnamo.
The stats don’t lie, and Jönköpings Södra IF have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals overall. Defensively, Jönköpings Södra IF have been far from perfect. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see if such a trend shall be sustained here in this match.
Prediction: Both teams to score
RADNIK V BACKA
Radnik Surdulica will be hoping for a better result after the 0-2 SuperLiga loss in their previous game against Vojvodina.
Under three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Radnik Surdulica have been involved. In terms of the goal weighting in this period, their opponents scored an aggregate of 6 and Radnik Surdulica totted up 5.
Since a loss in their previous game against Napredak Kruševac in SuperLiga action, TSC Bačka Topola will be hoping to turn things around here.
Indicating their penchant for productive encounters, the back of the net has been hit 21 times in the prior 6 matches in which TSC Bačka Topola have taken to the field, making it an average of 3.5 goals per meeting. Opposition teams have managed 11 of those goals. That pattern might not be carried forward here, though.
Prediction: Both teams to score
