The real highlight of the day was Chilla, an unusual speedster.
YB took the lead early on in Wankdorf against Servette: After a corner Camara passed the ball imprecisely in the 4th minute of the game and Rouiller of all people steered the ball beyond his own goal line for Servette goalie Frick. YB star Nsame increased in the 41st minute after a precise cross from Maceiras the lead of his team, which was generally the more active and dangerous team in the game.
In the second half, the Young Boys extended the lead in the 60th minute through Mambimbi – supposedly. After a check with the VAR referee, the referee decided that a foul had previously occurred and canceled the 3-0. Mambimbi also fell in the penalty area in the 73rd minute. Referee Bieri first pointed to the penalty point, but revoked his judgment after consulting the repetition. In stoppage time, Camara was thrown off the pitch because of a second yellow card triggered by a deliberate handball.
The game ended 2-0 for YB.
Highlight at FCZ – Sion: Ancillo Canepa’s speedster dog
The Valais took the lead in the 12th minute with a placed shot by Luca Clemenza, who was left too much space and time on the edge of the penalty area by the Zurich defense. After half an hour, Sion was awarded a penalty for a handball by Fidan Aliti. Grgic shot halfway up the middle, which turned out to be a bad choice: FCZ goalie Brecher parried with his foot.
Shortly thereafter, Blaž Kramer missed an unbelievable chance: At first, the Zurich striker stood alone in front of Sion goalie Fayulu, shot the ball against the post and suddenly had it again in front of the empty goal. But:
The 24-year-old was able to steer the cross from Marchesano past Fayulu into the goal: equalization. No more goals were scored in the second half. Because of the second yellow card, Sion defender Wesley was thrown off the pitch shortly before the end.
The teams agreed on a draw.
The highlight of the game was undoubtedly Chilla, the dog of FCZ President Canepa, who found his way onto the field shortly before half-time and had to be picked up by his master in person.
Lucerne beats Lugano
In the tenth minute, Covilo gave Lugano the lead. Shortly before the break, Luzern came to equalize. Because of a handball by Kecskes, the Central Swiss got a penalty, which Schulz converted. Bottani then used a nicely presented counterattack for a 2-1 lead. Lucerne, however, did not let itself be beaten and scored the 2-2 in the 81st minute. Tasar met via the inside post. But Lucerne’s Tasar still didn’t have enough. Shortly before the end, he met with a directly converted free kick to the 2: 3 away win.
