Servette Geneva – Lugano betting tip, prediction & odds 02.06.2024

Swiss Cup, Final, Sunday, 02.06.2024

It’s finals time in Europe! Shortly before the European Championship, the seasons in the international leagues come to an end, so the final of the Swiss Cup takes place on Sunday.

The champions from Bern? They’re staying at home! Two other teams will face each other in the Wankdorf stadium, one of which will be playing its third final in a row.

In my Servette Geneva Lugano betting tip, I’ll tell you why I’m expecting a close, intense affair and will therefore be backing a BTS

Is this club slowly but surely booking a subscription to the cup final? It almost looks like it! FC Lugano are in the final for the third time in a row, winning in 2022 and losing in 2023.

Just a few days ago, Lugano were delighted to finish runners-up in the championship, only to be overtaken by Servette Geneva and finish just behind the champions, Young Boys from Bern

The footballers will now compete in their stadium to make the next cup triumph perfect. The season finale in the Super League was a bit of a mess, despite finishing second.

Lugano had remained unbeaten nine times in a row, including eight wins, but then lost three of their last five games. It was still enough for second place and so all the focus is on the final on Sunday

The journey began several months ago with a 7:0 win against Gunzwil, and the 3:0 win against Lancy was no surprise either. In the round of 16, the opponents became tougher and came straight from the same league.

After the 4:0 against Lausanne-Sport, the most exciting match was to be played, against FC Basel. Lugano let victory slip from their grasp by conceding two late goals, and the 2-2 draw had to be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

The team kept their nerve here and faced FC Sion in the semi-finals shortly afterwards. This time, things went more smoothly again, and the 2:0 meant there was nothing left to play for in terms of reaching the final.

However, it is unclear whether two not unimportant players will be fit again on Sunday. Lukas Mai is injured, and many still know the central defender from FC Bayern. In addition, it is not yet clear whether Ousmane Doumbia will make it to the weekend

Just a few days ago, by the way, on the last matchday of the Super League, they lost 2-0 to Servette Geneva. Unfortunate, because that was the opponent in the cup final. However, it was already clear before kick-off that nothing was at stake for Lugano.

The direct comparison shows that they haven’t won against Servette in eight matches and have even lost three of the last four by narrow margins! At the same time, of course, I’m looking ahead to the Swiss Cup

In this competition, Lugano have only lost one of five encounters, winning last year’s semi-final on penalties. What do our bookmakers think about the situation?

Before they turn their attention to the European Championship and its odds, including the Swiss national team, of course, they are offering odds of 2.20 to 3.10 for the cup final

These refer to a victory after 90 minutes, Geneva is favored here. If the question is who will lift the trophy, regardless of how, Servette is in front with an average of 1.60 to 2.10.

The third-placed team in the table hunted Young Boys for a long time, but at some point the collapse came. Three narrow victories out of the last eleven games, only two wins to nil, so it was no championship

In the cup, there were both close and clear-cut affairs. One thing is clear in any case: Geneva have been lucky with their draw. Excluding the victories against the lower-ranked teams Meyrin (8:0) and FC Bulle (4:1), they went on to win 5:2 on penalties against Stade-Lausanne.

In the quarter-finals, they beat Delemont 2-0, and the last step before the final was a 1-0 win against FC Winterthur. This is the first time Servette have played in a final since 2001, when they also won the Cup in the end.

Servette Geneva are back in a cup final for the first time in 22 years, while Lugano are back for the third time in a row! It is quite possible that this fact will have a decisive influence on Sunday’s match.

In the end, there wasn’t much between the two teams in the league, but Lugano took second place. All in all, I think we’ll see a final on an absolutely equal footing.

It’s interesting to note that the last six Swiss Cup finals have featured goals from both sides. Since the most recent cup duel was so close that it went to a penalty shoot-out, my tip is:

Lugano and Servette score!
