Aarau vs Grasshopper Betting Odds and Predictions
Are the Grasshoppers second-rate?
No reason for re-promotion: the record champion from Switzerland has his back to the wall two game days before the end of the season in the Challenge League. In order to at least move into the relegation, the Grasshoppers need support on the last two matchdays and also have to deliver themselves. Finally, the GCZ left important points in the promotion race.
The third away game in a row is scheduled for the Grasshoppers in Aarau on Thursday evening. The GCZ has not won three times in a row abroad. If the negative series also stops at the league’s eighth of the table, there is a risk of an early promotion knockout.
In the match between Aarau and the Grasshoppers, the best bookmakers see the guests as favorites according to the odds. Although the bookmakers’ assessment of the previous round of grasshoppers is understandable, we would rather advise against betting on the 1X2 market. After all, the GCZ is struggling to face an offensive opponent.
Goals should almost be guaranteed when the two clubs meet. Therefore, we tend to think that the Challenge League Thursday game between Aarau and the Grasshoppers is a good way to predict a goal-scoring match.
Aarau – Statistics & current form
The eagles from Aarau can end the season. As the table eight, there is no risk of relegation and there are no ambitions for advancement for the black, white and red. In the last six games, FC Aarau has recently been without a win, but still delivered some offensive spectacles. Since the Challenge League started again, there have been an average of 4.90 goals per game involving Aarau.
Is Aarau finally slowing down the record champions?
The attack department of the black, white and red is one of the best offensives in the Challenge League. But there were sometimes catastrophic performances from the defensive. Aarau have conceded 76 goals in 34 season games, making them the worst team in the league.
On average, the Adler conceded 2.24 goals per game. A few weeks ago, the aspiring aspirant from Vaduz felt that FC Aarau should not be underestimated. Aarau scored a well-deserved point in a balanced match, giving Vaduz a decent damper in the promotion race.
On the last matchday, Aarau suffered an away defeat at FC Wil, the youngest opponent of the Grasshoppers. As in the previous games, the Aarau defensive was demonstrated by the opposing attack department. If nothing changes in the game against the GCZ, it will only be a matter of time before the opponent wets the first time.
Probable lineup of Aarau:
➤ Ammeter – Caserta, Affolter, Schindelholz, Thiesson – Hajdari, Hammerich, Rrudhani – Spadanuda, Schneuwly, Gashi

Grasshoppers – Statistics & current form
“Do-or-die” for the Grasshoppers from Zurich. After important points in the promotion race were left behind on the previous match day, the next point loss of the GCZ may threaten the promotion knockout. To take second place in the Challenge League two games before the end of the season, the record champion from Zurich needs rifle support.
Weakness away destroys promotion plans
It will be the third away game in a row for the Grasshoppers on Thursday evening. According to the GCZ’s recent away record, the away game at FC Aarau is not really convenient for coach Zoltan Kadar’s protégés. After all, there has been only one win for the Grasshoppers in the last five away games.
Last Monday the Kadar team played the catch-up game against FC Wil and had the chance to take second place in the Challenge League again on their own. After a 0: 2 deficit was leveled in the meantime, the Grasshoppers buckled in the final phase and conceded the goal to the 2: 3 final result.
It was the third competitive game in a row in which the GCZ conceded three or more goals. This is not really common for the otherwise strong defense of the record champions. On Thursday evening, the Grasshoppers can no longer afford to lose points in the current table constellation.
In Aarau Kadar will be missing a total of seven players. The Grasshoppers will be particularly weak in the full-back positions. With Arigoni, Cabral, Goelzer and Wittwer, the entire defense team is missing. If the record champion from Zurich prevails on Thursday evening, Aarau vs. Grasshoppers paid passable odds for tip 2.
Probable lineups of Grasshoppers:
➤ Salvi – Wittwer, Pijnaker, Mesonero, Dickenmann – Buff, Salatic – Gjorgjev, Morandi, Pusic – Ben Khalifa
Last games from Grasshoppers:
⚽️ 07/27 2020 FC Wil 1900 3 – 2 Grasshopper Club

Aarau vs Grasshoppers Betting Odds and Predictions
The Grasshoppers must win the last two games of the current season and at the same time hope for support from the league competition. The Grasshoppers can no longer occupy the relegation place of the Challenge League on their own. A big point was awarded at FC Wil in the promotion race on the previous day.
Had the GCZ won the match in Wil, the team around coach Kadar would have passed Vaduz. But as Lothar Matthäus once said: “Would be, would be a bicycle chain”.
