Fourth league game without a win for FC Bale! Beaten 3-1 at St. Gallen, the Rhenish sank into crisis.
Reduced by the weight of absences, the formation of Ciriaco Sforza conceded a defeat which does not suffer any discussion. It was very largely dominated by Saint-Gallois who scored on a personal exploit of Lukas Görtler, on a penalty of Kwadwo Duah and on a free kick of Jordi Quintilla. The Rhenish saved the honor in stoppage time by Arthur Cabral.
After this victory, St. Gallen is only one point behind FC Basel. The fight for the place of dolphin behind Young Boys promises to be very uncertain due to the increasingly severe limits of FC Basel.
