“Servette Dominates Zurich 4-0 and Moves up to 2nd Place in Super League”

2023-04-26 20:27:03

Servette has well digested his 6-1 humiliation against YB suffered 4 days ago. At home, the Garnets crushed Zurich 4-0 and moved up to 2nd place in the Super League.

This victory bears the hallmark of Chris Bedia. Author of a double for his 7th and 8th successes of the season, the Ivorian especially had the good idea to open the scoring after 36 seconds. He exploited a huge blunder by Cheick Conde to beat an almost incredulous Yanick Brecher at this scenario.

The 2-0 scored in the 38th by Patrick Pflücke on a service from Derek Kutesa allowed the Garnets to close the case very quickly. For a team that had only picked up 9 out of 27 points in its last 9 matches, the apathy displayed by the opponent was a godsend. The FCZ has undoubtedly delivered one of its poorest performances since the induction of Bo Henriksen.

Chain against the Embroiderers

Thanks to this victory, the SFC temporarily regains 2nd place which it had abandoned in Lucerne last weekend. We will now ask Alain Geiger’s players to continue on Saturday when St. Gallen comes to obtain this rank of runner-up, which will ensure them of playing for the first time in the 21st century the preliminary round of the Champions League.


“The team is motivated to seek this 2nd place”

For Alain Geiger, the picture is encouraging. “I saw my close-knit, combative and solid team, he lets go. I don’t remember a home game where we had so many chances. I really feel the team is motivated to go for this 2nd place.”

The Valais coach was able to measure if necessary how decisive the roles of Gaël Clichy, Timothé Cognat and Miroslav Stevanovic could be. Clichy and Stevanovic had been preserved on Saturday in Bern. Back in the game, they were able, with Cognat who is undoubtedly the most valuable player in the squad, to set the right tone for this Servette in search of redemption.

St. Gallen in the midst of a crisis

With FC St-Gall, the Garnets will face a team that has undoubtedly fallen into crisis after their loss at home to Lugano. Defeated 2-1 by Ticino, who are still as skilful in the art of outsmarting their opponents, Peter Zeidler’s team now have a series of 8 games without a win. Even if he is protected by a contract that runs until 2027, the German coach is not sure to emerge unscathed from this infernal spring…
