THE HOPPERS TRAVEL TO SION

At the end of the English week, the Hoppers travel to the Valais. There they are welcomed by FC Sion for the 5th round match.

Also in Lucerne, the Hoppers make up a deficit and finally get a point in central Switzerland. So the Zurich team is still unbeaten and has two wins and two draws. Now it's on to the Valais, where they will meet FC Sion on Saturday evening.

FC Sion have also made a good start to the new season. Sion currently have one point less than GC on their account and have only been beaten at home by YB so far this season. Most recently, they drew 0-0 in the "Derby du Rhône" before beating FCZ 3-0 at Letzigrund. Yesterday, FC Sion also introduced Wylan Cyprien as a new signing. The French midfielder comes from Parma Calcio and has played over 150 games in Ligue 1. However, it is questionable whether Cyprien will play against GC on Saturday evening.

For the match against Sion, head coach Giorgio Contini will still have to do without Florian Hoxha and Sangbin Jeong due to injury. Georg Margreitter, Hayao Kawabe, Li Lei and Amir Abrashi will also be missing (<link https: www.gcz.ch en news article injury-update external-link-new-window auf eine externe seite grasshopper club>more). In addition, the work permit of centre-forward Guilherme Schettine is still pending.

The match can be followed as usual on 86live via live ticker and radio. In addition, the match can be watched for free through the livestream on <link https: onefootball.com en match external-link-new-window auf eine externe seite grasshopper club>Onefootball.
