FC Zurich take on Sion on Saturday
FC Zurich continue their hunt for the Super League title on Saturday when they take on Sion at the Stadion Letzigrund.
The visitors, meanwhile, will be looking to get one over the league leaders, having failed to win any of the last seven meetings between the sides.
Zurich resumed their charge to the Super League crown last weekend as they claimed a 2-1 win over Young Boys.
Prior to that, they were on a two-game winless run, playing out a 1-1 draw with Grasshopper Zurich on April 2 before losing 1-0 at Servette eight days later.
With 66 points from 30 games, FC Zurich currently lead the way in the league table, 13 points above second-placed Basel.
Elsewhere, Sion put on a solid display as they held Basel to a goalless draw when the sides met last Monday.
This followed a 3-1 victory at Lugano on April 10 which saw their three-game losing streak come to an end.
Sion are currently seventh in the league standings after picking up 34 points from 30 games.
