FC Zurich vs Grasshopper Zurich Prediction and Betting Tips | February 10th 2024


FC Zurich and city rivals Grasshopper Zurich will trade tackles in a Swiss Super League matchday 23 fixture on Saturday.

FC Zurich vs Grasshopper Zurich Prediction

The biggest derby in Swiss football will take place this weekend with both FC Zurich and Grasshopper in need of momentum. FC Zurich’s struggles have been worse and they are currently without a win since they claimed a 3-1 victory over Young Boys in November last year. This poor run has seen their European aspirations take a hit.

Grasshopper will be looking to extend their rivals’ winless streak and claim all three points as well as city bragging rights. Their games for the last few months have been low-scoring, although this fixture tends to witness lots of goals.

We are backing the two sides to cancel each other out in a high-scoring stalemate.
