Before the national team break, the Hoppers were beaten 2-1 by Lausanne-Ouchy in western Switzerland. This was the third defeat in a row in the championship. But before the CSSL continues, the second round of the Swiss Cup starts tomorrow. They will then face FC Sion away from home.
Last year's CSSL relegated team is the current leader of the Challenge League. Sion are still unbeaten in the current season. FC Sion has four wins and two draws to its credit. In addition, they won the first round of the Swiss Cup against Etoile Carouge. Now they welcome GC Zurich to the Stade de Tourbillon on Friday evening.
For the match against Sion, head coach Bruno Berner will have to do without the long-term injured Nigel Lonwijk and Michael Kempter. Otherwise, Berner has the entire squad at his disposal.
The match can be followed as usual on 86live via live ticker and radio. In addition, the match can be seen on free livestream on SRF Sport.
