Swansea City - St Gallen Betting Preview: Back Bony to continue his fine form in Europe

The Swans welcome Jeff Saibene's Swiss side to the Liberty Stadium with top spot in Group A up for grabs in the Europa League
Swansea City face St Gallen in Wales after a fantastic start in the Europa League group stages two weeks ago.

Michael Laudrup's side visited the Mestalla in Valenica, where they came away with three points after a sensational 3-0 win. Currently sitting top of Group A, Swansea have a chance to extend their league at the top in this match.

Standing in their way are St Gallen, a Swiss side who finished third in their domestic league last season.

Jeff Saibene's outfit currently sit in fourth position in the Swiss Super League, behind Basel, Grasshopper and Young Boys. This is St Gallen's first season in a European competition since 2001, and they had to bypass Spartak Moscow in qualifying to reach this stage.

Bet365 price them at 7/1 (8.00) to take all three points tonight.

Swansea come into this match having lost their last two matches to Arsenal in the league and Birmingham in the Capital One Cup.

Laudrup's men have already played 12 competitive matches this season, winning five, losing five and drawing two. With their victory away at Valencia setting them up well in Group A, a win tonight would put them in pole position to qualify for the next stage. Bet365 price them at 4/9 (1.44) to win. The same firm price the draw at 15/4 (4.75).

With the Swans a little to short to touch, it's worth looking at the goalscorer market to find a solid bet. Wilfried Bony, Swansea's €15 million signing in the summer, has been in fine form in Europe this season.

The Cote d'Ivoire international has netted four in his first four matches, and the price of him to score anytime at even money (2.00) with Bet365 is certainly worth backing.
