Football: Xamax misses its debut

Neuchâtel Xamax did not start the 22/23 Challenge League season in the best possible way. On the road to FC Wil on Sunday, the Neuchâtelois lost 2-0.

Andrea Binotto’s players sank in ten minutes in the first half. At the 32nd. It was Carlos Silvio who scored the Saint-Gallois’ first goal on a pass from Josias Lukembila. And the Neuchâtelois barely had time to recover from this first misstep when, in the 42nd, Genis Montolio took advantage of a pass in the penalty area from Kastrijot Ndau to double the lead.

If the Xamaxiens dominated the game with 60% possession, it was in the opportunities – only 3 shots on target against 8 for Wil – that they fished.

Faced with the penultimate Challenge League last season, Neuchâtel Xamax therefore missed its entry and will have to resume next Friday with the reception of a bigger client, Aarau, at La Maladière.
