Exactly one hour had passed when the trade fair in Wankdorf seemed to have already been read: YB striker Felix Mambimbi was already showered with congratulations from his teammates for his 3-0 score, which was well worth seeing, when the VAR in Volketswil intervened. The hit was preceded by an elbow blow from Bern’s Mohamed Camara to Théo Valls. The consequence: Yellow for Camara instead of a goal for YB.
Mambimbi in double VAR bad luck
A quarter of an hour later, Mambimbi flirted again with a personal goal. After taking out a penalty himself, he tufted the ball in order to insert it. But again the video referee straddled in between and correctly punished a striker foul.
The re Servette defender Steven Rouiller turned out to be a tragic figure:
The Geneva center-back deflects a corner kick from Miralem Sulejmani into his own goal.
- 38. Minute: A cross from Gaël Clichy nods Rouiller heavily at the YB box, but goalie David von Ballmoos hexts the ball over the crossbar with a huge reflex.
- 41. Minute: YB full-back Quentin Maceiras served in the center Jean-Pierre Nsame with a high cross. Rouiller lets the YB top scorer go and see how he heads to 2-0.
The Bernese were able to save energy for next Thursday’s showdown on the European stage and take revenge on their feared opponent Servette (1 win from the last 6 games) for their 2-1 home defeat last December.
