Luzern – Statistics & Current Form
FC Luzern had to face a B-Elf host in Basel last night. Although the “Bebbi” changed compared to the previous league match changed in nine positions, the FC Luzern was shortly after the start of the second half already 0: 3 behind. The game seemed decided. But after a brace from Demhasaj within three minutes, it was exciting again. In the end, Basel won the match 3: 2. Since Sion had won at the same time on the last matchday 1-0 against Xamax, the team of coach Thomas Häberli was able to celebrate their league despite their own defeat. Now the blue-whites can look up. However, on the final day of the match Luzern will have to compete with the reigning and future champions in Bern.
“Against Zurich at home and away at YB it just means: full throttle forward. These are two games against good, big teams, but we’ll try our best to finish third. We spent the whole year around the Barrage Square. Now that’s gone. And I think it’s really better to look for your luck on the offensive. Therefore: full throttle forward – there is nothing else. ” – David Zibung
The future of coach Thomas Häberli, who had taken over the post of René Weiler in February, is still unclear. His contract only runs until the end of the season. The contract extension seems to be only a formality. It is unclear whether Häberli gets a one- or two-year contract in Luzern. The balance of the coach is relatively balanced after 14 games with five wins, three draws and six bankruptcies. The FCL is with 24 points, the third best away team of the Super League. On the opponent’s place there were seven victories and seven defeats this season. At home, it was enough but only six wins in 17 games. This makes eighth place in the home table. Striker Tomi Juric is missing injured against Zurich. Just like Stefan Knezevic, Lazar Cirkovic and Christian Schwegler.

Until the crucial phase, the Thuner were actually the better team. Zurich coach Ludovic Magnin stood against Thun after a suspension of three games for the first time again on the sidelines. Previously, the blue-whites had won 2-1 at Xamax. With the success of the relegation-threatened club from Neuchatel went for Zurich a series of twelve away matches in a row without a victory to the end.
“The first half was a good example of what is possible with the FCZ. Now we are looking back at Europe! We now have two fights for the Europa League. But that’s a positive pressure! ” – Ludovic Magnin
The Zurich trio are back in the race for international business due to the two threes in a row. In the last two matchdays, the men of Coach Magnin with Luzern and St. Gallen meet two direct competitors in the fight for the European Cup. With only four wins and four draws from 17 games, Zurich is the second-weakest away team in the Super League. At home, on the other hand, the men from the largest city in Switzerland are even stronger. In the home table of the Super League, only Bern and Basel are better off.
