St. Gallen and FC Zurich square off on Saturday

St. Gallen and FC Zurich go head-to-head at the Kybun Park Stadium in round three of the 2022-23 Swiss Super League on Saturday.

The reigning champions, who were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers last time out, will be looking to snap their five-game winless run.

St. Gallen picked up their first win of the new Swiss top-flight campaign when they saw off Winterthur 2-0 last Saturday.

Prior to that, they were on a three-game losing streak, including a 1-0 loss to Servette FC in their league opener on July 17.

St. Gallen are now unbeaten in all but one of their 11 home games in the Super League since the turn of the year.

Having suffered a 3-2 loss in the first leg, FC Zurich saw their Champions League qualification campaign come to an end as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Qarabag in the return leg on Wednesday.

They have now turned their sights to the Super League, where they are winless in their opening two games of the new season.

The current league champions head into the weekend on a two-game losing streak away from home and will be looking to arrest their slump in form.
