Sion loses against Basel, Servette bows at the last minute
The arrival of Paolo Tramezzani in place of Marco Walker caused the return to favor of goalkeeper Kevin Fickentscher, who had given way to Timothy Fayulu after a large defeat (6-1) conceded against Basel. Like all his teammates, the Sedun goalkeeper seemed concerned about the new coach’s project. A low and tight block largely contributed to hamper the progress of the Basel attackers. A private offensive compartment until the 78th minute of Arthur Cabral, the top scorer in the Super League, who had not returned until Friday from the gathering of the Brazil team, without having played.
The Valaisans have long been on an equal footing with the Rhenish. At 87th, Eray Cömert was excluded for a last resort foul on Filip Stojilkovic. But Zhegrova, the Kosovar international, mystified two Valais players and the 16-yard angle put the ball out of Fickentscher’s reach in the top right corner. Great art.
St Gallen at the last minute
Winners on Matchday 1, the Saint-Gallois had not tasted victory since then. It is undoubtedly with a certain flavor that the players of Peter Zeidler took their revenge 2-1 on a Servette who had atomized them a few weeks ago (5-1). A cross from a distance from Görtner landed on the head Kwadwo Duah, who left no chance for the substitute goalkeeper Edin Omeragic, who replaced Frick, suspended (35th). An opening of the score quite deserved for the Alémaniques.
Totally dominated in the first half, the Servettians did much better in the second half. They finally managed to take possession of the ball and settle in the St. Gallen camp. The prospect of getting a point fell in the 85th when Steve Rouiller headed a tight cross from Stevanovic with a header into the cage. But Jérémy Guillemenot, the unfortunate hero of the Praille match with an early expulsion, was there to set foot on a cross from Schubert, left alone on the right flank (93rd).
