HC AMBRÌ-PIOTTA vs HC FRIBOURG GOTTÉRON
SEASON HEAD TO HEAD
Ambrì-Piotta are coming off the 2-1 home defeat suffered against Lugano that followed the 5-3 defeat suffered in Zürich againt the Lions. The Leventinesi won only 2 of their first 8 games of the season and are currently 11th placed with 7 points. If we exclude the last game against Lugano, however, there is no denying that Luca Cereda’s troops improved a lot compared to the early stages of the season. We mean, tonight the expect the Biancoblù to give their best in order to get back to winning ways.
HC FRIBOURG GOTTÉRON
Fribourg Gottéron are coming off the 3-1 home defeat suffered against Bern that followed the win – the only one of the season – earned against Genève Servette after overtime on the road. There is no denying that the Dragons are very committed, they proved that also against the Bears. There is also no denying, however, that several players aren’t yet at the top of their game… we mean, we expect Mark French’s troops to kick-start their season for real!
It’s good omen for Fribourg Gottéron to face Ambrì-Piotta on October 4th… it happened also in 2014 and back then, at the BCF Arena, the Dragons coached by Hans Kossmann earned a 4-3 shootout win. During the 60 minutes of play, Benny Plüss, Greg Mauldin and Julien Sprunger scored for the hosts. Meanwhile, Lukas Lhotak (!), Alexandre Giroux and Alain Birbaum scored for the visiting side.
