The fight for international business in the Super League is getting worse in the last two days of the match. A total of six teams compete for the three places that qualify for the UEFA Europa League. The fact that this time there are only three instead of two tickets for Europe as in the previous year, the teams have to thank FC Basel, who prevailed in the cup final against FC Thun at the weekend and thus due to their own Champions League qualification also the gates for the fifth-placed opened. The best chances for a place among the top five currently has Lugano. The team of former professional Fabio Celestini is currently in third place, but has only two points ahead of the table screen. However, if the Black and Whites win their away game on Wednesday night at Xamax Neuchatel, they would not be able to return to the European level.
Xamax Neuchatel vs Lugano Football Betting Tips
Quite different is the mood of the newcomer from Neuchâtel, who must fight to prevent the immediate re-descent. As a table new missing the red-black currently four points on the saving shore. For this reason, the relegation waving against the second of the Challenge League. But the Henchoz team still has hope that in the last two games a small miracle succeeds. The bookies are of a different opinion, as between Xamax Neuchatel and Lugano lower odds are offered for a tip on the away win. However, this distribution of the odds is only of limited surprise, because after all, the guests have lost just one of the youngest eleven matches in the league, while Xamax ‘intermediate positive run was recently stopped abruptly with two defeats in a row. Does the table third seal the own Europa League participation and at the same time the laborious Neuchatel Neuchatel in the relegation? The answer to this exciting question will be on Wednesday evening from 20:00 clock in La Maladière.
Xamax Neuchatel – Statistics & Current Form
The return of Xamax Neuchatel to the biggest Swiss football stage was celebrated extensively before the season. For the first time since the bankruptcy in 2012, the red-blacks managed to master the rise back into the top division of the country. However, the Super League adventure could be over after just one game year, with two games to go to indicate that Stephane Henchoz’s side will have to go down to relegation against the second in the Challenge League. With currently four points behind the rescuing shore, a small miracle would have to happen that the table ninth actually actually jumps into eighth position.
The quite justified hopes suffered in the last two encounters a bitter damper. After ten outstanding points from four matches between Matchday 29 and 32, after which the relegation candidate was able to stalk up to a counter at the non-relegation places, it hailed last two sensitive flop at home against FC Zurich (1: 2) and in the Last week against the direct competitor from Sion (0: 1). These setbacks may have finally closed the door for the club from western Switzerland. Nonetheless, the Henchoz team will continue to throw everything in, including the relegation, to either make the impossible possible or at least go into the relegation games with a good feeling.
Incidentally, the home record of the Neuenburger is not really a driver of hope, because with only five wins (four draws, eight defeats) brought Xamax in front of their own fans, only two points more than in a foreign country. In particular, the defensive revealed great difficulties, which impressively confirm the 33 goals in 17 home games (league high). Nevertheless, we would not automatically deduce from this defensive weakness that will pay off between Xamax Neuchatel and Lugano a prediction on many goals. But on the contrary. Only in one of the recent eight encounters with red-black participation was the Over 2.5 mark cracked. However, whether this is an indication of betting on matching bets on a maximum of two hits on Wednesday should be subject to some subjectivity in decision-making. Santana, Le Pogam, Nimani and ex-Bundesliga legionary Serey Die must watch injured.

Lugano – Statistics & Current Form
Eleven years in a row, FC Lugano had to spend between 2005 and 2015 in the second division of Switzerland, before the rise succeeded. In the second year, the black and white surprised all critics and finished the season as an excellent third. The resulting double burden with the Europa League group phase 2017/2018 led in the previous year, among other things, that the descent could be prevented only very slightly. In the current season, the team of Fabio Celestini, who has been swinging the scepter in the canton of Ticino since October 2018, is back on top. Lugano is in third place two games before the end of the season and is once again in possession of the group stage of the Europa League 2019/2020. With two wins against Xamax Neuchatel next Wednesday and at the weekend at the already relegated Grasshopper Club from Zurich, the three-time Swiss champion has absolutely feasible tasks in front of the chest.
The current form of FCL can also be quite impressive. Out of the last twelve Super League games, only one has been lost (five wins, six draws). On the other hand, the Celestini-Elf has been waiting for a triple for four matches, even though this allegedly negative resonating sound has to be put into perspective. Three out of the four recent appearances ended in a draw – although the third-placed rider, among others, the Young Boys from Bern (2: 2) or at FC Basel (1: 1) took. Similar to Xamax Neuchatel, Lugano’s odds of scoring few goals were mostly crowned with success. On the last three matchdays, for example, one hit each decided the games with Ticino participation. In this respect, it could well offer, even on Wednesday evening between Xamax Neuchatel and Lugano a tip on tending to score fewer goals. Equally, it could also make sense to conclude bets on an away win, because purely in terms of quality, the guests are certainly a little stronger estimate. There is also the chance to make everything clear with a win ahead of the Europa League. We do not believe that the troupe, which has its main players in the two attackers Carlinhos (13 goals, four assists) and Alexander Gerndt (nine hits, ten assists), wants to miss this opportunity.
Expected formation of Lugano:
↪ Baumann – Daprelá, Sulmoni, Yao – Crnigoj, Sabbatini, Vecsei, Lavanchy, Bottani – Carlinhos, Gerndt
↪ Coach: Celestini
Last matches of Lugano:
⚽️ 16.05.2019 – Lugano Vs. St. Gallen 1: 0 (Super League)
