The Kriens performance in the opening two rounds are mediocre. Peter Kukucka’s team took a narrow 29:28 wins against Suhr Aarau and 32:32 away draw in the last round against Wacker Thun. The main problem is the long injury list of key players such as top scorer Andy Schmid, first goalkeeper Kevin Bonnefoi, Ramon Schlumpf, Dimitrij Küttel and Moritz Oertli. St. Gallen are quite capable of giving an unpleasant evening. They have a quality offensive players led by Andrija Pendic and David Knezevic. In the opening two rounds, they suffered two close defeats from title contenders Pfadi Winterthur 32:30 and Kadetten Schaffhausen 29:32, and I think that can keep a close result against depleted Kriens. In their last 13 mutual matches, only 2 times Kriens won by 6 or more goals difference.
Extra bet: +4.5 handicap St. Gallen @ 1.90
