Lugano has a reputation for being hard to beat on the road, but not particularly effective at home. Interestingly, the hosts won just two of their last 8 home games against Sion, and they lost the last meeting 1-3.

If we go back to last season, after just five league matches Lugano parted ways with then coach Abel Braga. The decision was made by the new owners to replace the Brazilian with Mattia Croci-Torti, and he took the Black and white into 4th place on the table.

For the new campaign, the Lugano faithful were hoping to see Jo Mansueto deliver on his promise of strengthening the squad. However, the Chicago Fire FC owner invested just €1.6M in the transfer market, with the only final acquisition being Lars Lukas Mai. The 22-year-old joins from Bayern Munich, albeit he spent the last two years on loan at Werder Bremen and Darmstadt.

Following a late rally last season, Sion saved themselves from a relegation play-out. With two games remaining, Paolo Tramezzani’s team got a vital win in Lausanne. For the record, they finished one point ahead of the danger zone.

While the visitors haven’t spent much (-€50K) on player transactions, Tramezzani told the owners he wanted to work with a smaller squad. At the time of writing, Sion reduced the squad size from 35 to 24. 

By the way, the two cash transactions were selling Loris Benito to YBB for €800K. While Denis Will Poha arrived from Guimaraes for €850K. From our reckoning, Sion has done some good business.

We like Sion for a number of reasons, and the first of them is a workable squad. Furthermore, we are under the impression that Tramezzani is a good coach, and he just needs his players to stay injury free. Sion has a good record in Lugano, and we expect that to continue today!
