Tobias Gourlay’s dipping into the Swiss second tier and hoping to pull out a home win
Aarau v Neuchatel Xamax
In Turkey yesterday, Rizespor took an early lead, Ankaragucu pegged them back before the break and our BTTS bet was paid out at half-time.
We’re in Switzerland today for one of today’s two matches from the second-tier Challenge League. Second-bottom Neuchatel Xamax have lost more league games (14/20) than anyone else in the league this season and we fancy fifth-placed FC Aarau to inflict a 15th loss on them this evening.
Neuchatel have lost all of their last seven away from home. They’re W1-D0-L8 since the start of term, having failed to score on any of their most recent five road trips.
FC Aarau are W4-D2-L2 through their last eight appearances at Stadion Brugglifeld. The defeats came at the teams now first and second in the table. Stephan Keller’s men have scored at least twice in 6/8 and look like they’ve got more than enough firepower to blast past goal-shy Neuchatel tonight. We’re backing the hosts.
