Swiss Cup: Yverdon causes a sensation by eliminating Zurich –

Yverdon signed a superb feat in the round of 16 of the Swiss Cup. The formation of Uli Forte offered the scalp of FC Zurich, beaten … 11-10 in the penalty shootout at the Municipal Stadium. Lausanne qualified by beating Aarau 1-0.

It is still a little early to hope to repeat the crazy adventure of 2000/01, when Philippe Perret took Yverdon-Sport to the Cup final. Nonetheless, the Nord Vaudois club achieved a performance of choice by eliminating FCZ, which won this competition under the rule of Forte in 2016.

Endless series of penalties

The Yverdonnois hero of the evening is called Steve Beleck. The 28-year-old Franco-Cameroonian striker scored twice, scoring 1-0 in the 43rd and 2-1 after four minutes of play in extra time, before converting his two penalties in an endless session. It was Marculino Ninte who offered Yverdon qualification by beating FCZ goalkeeper Zikvo Kostadinovic on the 26th shot on goal of the evening.

Lausanne-Sport will also play in the quarter-finals next February. Coach Ilija Borenovic’s men went to win 1-0 on the pitch in Challenge League 4th Aarau in the round of 16. A success of its top scorer Zeki Amdouni in the 56th minute was enough for the happiness of the Lausanne residents.
