The 18th round of the Challenge League 21/22 in Switzerland will be played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, between 12/14/2021 and 12/19/2021. This week's fixtures also include postponed matches from previous rounds, so there's even more action to look forward to.The first game of this round will take place on 12/14/2021 and will end on 12/19/2021.

Already, last week we saw some interesting matches, for example when FC Aarau played FC Winterthur and defeated them 2-0. Furthermore, there was the match between FC Thun vs. FC Wil 1900, where FC Thun got beaten 2-4. Yet another very watchable match was FC Vaduz's game where they managed to beat SC Kriens 1-3. Here, on Oddspedia, we provide you with a detailed overview and statistics of the upcoming Challenge League matchday in Switzerland– detailed information forall the games on the fixtures, the teams and their current form.

Matchweek 18 Highlights

A highly anticipated match will be FC Wil 1900 vs FC Winterthur on 12/11/2021 at 17:00. FC Winterthur has the upper hand in this match, since they are currently on the second place in the table. However, they still want to make sure to keep their rank. FC Winterthur won their last match against FC Wil 1900, while FC Wil 1900 didn't manage to score 3 points. So it will be exciting to see if they'll take this match as a chance to compensate for this. However, looking at their recent games, chances are not looking too good for FC Winterthur, since they lost most of their matches, while FC Wil 1900 managed to win 3 of their last 5.

Another match fans are looking forward to takes place on 12/10/2021 at 19:30. Here, FC Vaduz (currently in 1st place) will face Yverdon-Sport (9th place). Both of them didn't manage to score 3 points in their last match. Looking at the teams' performance in their last matches can also be an indicator about their current form: FC Vaduz had quite a mixed performance lately. They won 2 and lost 1 of their last five games, making their performance in the upcoming match harder to guess. The same goes for Yverdon-Sport who lost 2 and won 2 of their last 5 matches.

People are also excited to see Neuchatel Xamax fight against FC Thun. They currently are in 7th place and 4th place, making their match interesting to watch. FC Thun won their last match against Neuchatel Xamax, while Neuchatel Xamax didn't manage to win against FC Thun. Now, FC Thun hast the chance to show that they're the better team altogether. You can also look at their recent performance to get an idea of their chances in the upcoming match: Winning 2 and losing 2 of their last five games, FC Thun had quite a mixed run lately, on which they will hopefully improve. Neuchatel Xamax performed alright in their recent matches. They achieved two victories and lost 2 out of five times.

Challenge League Table - Who has the Most Points?

FC Vaduz are currently leading the table with 30 points and a goal differencial of 8 (30 scored and 22 received). So far, they have won 9 out of their 17 matches–but since they're only leading by 1 point, FC Winterthur (2/29pts) could take the lead this week, if they win their match against FC Vaduz (1/30pts). Of course, FC Vaduz would also have to lose their match. In any case, players will give their best to help their team win. But not only the top of the table has some interesting matches to offer–teams in the lower half also have to fight hard to stay in their league and not finish the season in last place. At the last place, there are SC Kriens (10/6pts) with 6 points–and since they're already 16 points away from the last safe place, there's unfortunately no way they're going to be staying in the league after this season.

The biggest positive change in position, compared to the last matchday, has been made by FC Thun (5/25 points), who moved up two positions and are now in 5th place in the league. On the other side, FC Aarau (4/26 points) made the biggest loss in positions, losing a total of three ranks.
