Kriens are receiving FC Schaffhausen for another vital match after their 0-0 result versus 5th-placed Aarau.

Insights:
  • Kriens have the fewest scored goals (5) in Challenge League
  • FC Schaffhausen have the most points from losing position (7) in Challenge League

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting FC Schaffhausen have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 9-12-17 (win-draw-loss) from 38 matches.

Kriens form and stats

Zero (!) Challenge League points is the sad result after 4 matches here at Stadion Kleinfeld. Can it change today? It's been an uphill battle for Kriens in their home games for quite some time now, as four matches in a row are lost here. Not since the Thun game have they avoided the disappointment of defeat.

Stress levels are on the rise for Kriens's attacking players as they have now played 270 minutes without scoring in a league game. I. Harambasic was their last goal scorer.

Kriens travelled for their previous game, a trip to Aarau that ended 0-0.

A defeat was the result before that one, 0-5 away at Stade Lausanne-Ouchy.

Kriens have scored 3 league goals here from 4 matches, not a lot. As for conceded goals, Kriens's unpleasant statistic is 10 goals surrendered.

FC Schaffhausen form and stats

It's not happening yet for FC Schaffhausen on their Challenge League travels, with zero points from their first 3 away games. Maybe today will be different? Three consecutive losses in away matches means Schaffhausen are growing more and more desperate for a good performance on the road.

Schaffhausen are travelling after their nice 4-0 home win in the Challenge League against Neuchatel Xamax (placed 2nd). As you can tell from the results above, Schaffhausen was very dominant against Neuchatel Xamax, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 4-0 (!) with J. Ardaiz, B. Lika and F. Rodríguez providing the goals.

A 0-2 defeat away at Wil before that.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Schaffhausen's away games in the league this season with only 1 goal from 3 matches. For Schaffhausen, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net.
