In the 33rd round of the Challenge League, Grasshoppers will host Stade Lausanne de Ouchy. Grasshoppers are fighting for first place and direct promotion, while Lausanne has only a theoretical chance to reach second place. They are in fifth place with 48 points and 9 points behind Thun. Their motivation is questionable, and their form is bad with only one victory in the last 7 games. In addition, they have a lot of significant absences such as Abdullah (26/2), Perrier (22/1), Albizua (20/0), Laugeois (19/0), Schneuwly (12/1), Da Silva (14/0), and Dalvand (4/0). Grasshoppers are the best team this season, and in the mutual duels at Letzigrund Stadion in Zurich, they always came up with three points.
