Lausanne-Ouchy – Neuchâtel Xamax 1: 0
Last Sunday, Xamax drew a line when coach Stéphane Henchoz was on leave after seven defeats in a row. Will the new man on the sidelines teach Neuchâtel how to win again? Martin Rueda (57) temporarily leads the relegated Super League until Christmas. Rueda is currently the head of the Neuchâtel youth department, but the man has coaching experience, including from his time at YB (2012/13). But even he fails to stop Xamax from free fall. After losing to Thun on Tuesday (1: 2), Xamax is now losing to Lausanne-Ouchy on the Pontaise. So for the ninth time in a row. The seventh goal of the season from their clipper Yanis Lahiouel, which falls after the break, is enough for the Lausanne team. Lahiouel uses a cross from Asllani with a head. Because at the same time the bottom Chiasso turns the game against Kriens and wins, Xamax slides to the bottom of the table as a Super League relegated. Two points behind the Ticino.
The gate: 57. Lahiouel 1: 0.
Chiasso – Kriens
The goals: 27. Abubakar 0: 1, 39. Hajrizi 1: 1, 60. Abubakar, 1: 2, Morganella 2: 2, 94. Hajrizi 3: 2.
Schaffhausen – GC 2:1
The leader surprisingly drops points! In the fog of Schaffhausen, GC got off to a better start and went ahead with a remarkable free kick from Santos. The people of Zurich also have the option to refill, but leave them behind. So the home team wakes up and can equalize. GC goalie Matic cannot hold a cross and Prtajin is right and hits. The FCS then takes control and can take the lead. But it takes until shortly after the 70th minute for the substitute Mozzone to make clear the Schaffhausen victory. The Munotstädter thus get important points in order not to lose the connection to the top places.
The goals: 10. Santos 0:1, 32. Prtajin 1:1, 72. Mozzone 2:1.
Winterthur – Wil 3: 2
No, that’s probably not how Alex Frei (41) imagined his involvement at FC Wil. Just three wins in his 15 games as a coach. The 2-3 defeat against Winterthur is already the eighth this season. 15: 7 shots for Wil are recorded by the statisticians at the end. It’s bitter that Wil loses the game anyway. The reason is an ex-FCB player, Davide Callà. He laid the lead and got the second goal himself. And because Roman Buess took one of the few chances to make it 3-1 and the eastern Swiss only managed to catch up, FC Winterthur is still in the promotion race – and behind GC in second place. Frei, on the other hand, has to orientate himself backwards, the lead over Xamax is four points.
The goals: 3. Kamberi 1: 0, 41. Calla 2: 0, 45. Krasniqi 2: 1, 65. Buess 3: 1, 94. Brahimi 3: 2.
