This 1-1 score which sanctioned the Praille debates made the case for FC St. Gallen. Peter Zeidler’s side can take the lead alone if they win this Wednesday in Neuchâtel. If successful, the St. Welsh will enter the fourth and final round two steps ahead.
Despite a very strong hold, the Young Boys cannot feel aggrieved with this result. In this match that the two teams finished ten after the expulsions of Jean-Pierre Nsame (72nd) and Jérémy Frick (86th), the Servettiens were unlucky to concede the equalization on an unfortunate deflection by Boris Cespedes (58th ) only three minutes after the opening of the score by Koro Koné on penalty and seeing a shot from Kastriot Imeri diverted on the post by David Von Ballmoos (77th). Yes, this meeting could have gone both ways. In any case, she offered a show of choice to the 1000 spectators present
Deprived of three-quarters of their defense – Steve Rouiller was suspended, Vincent Sasso and Dennis Iapichino injured -, the Genevans were fighting on paper a fight lost in advance against the second best attack in the Super League. However, they had to show real valor before the break to concede only one real opportunity to the Bernese, a recovery of Nsame who found the post on a cross from Jordan Lotomba (32nd).
Four draws in four matches for the Grenat
Two minutes after this alert, the Genevans in turn obtained two golden chances by Koro Koné and by Christopher Routis, whose head was saved on the line by Nsame. It was for the striker his best gesture of an evening to forget with this red dictated by the VAR for an altercation with Anthony Sauthier.
With four draws in four games, Servette FC has not kept pace with the sprinter since the restart. But each time, the playfulness presented makes one forget the frustration that can cause this absence of victory. With Gaël Ondua and Timothé Cognat, Alain Geiger can rely on two halves able to really weigh on the game. The Cameroonian and the French hope the awakening of Miroslav Stevanovic, very transparent against the Young Boys, so that their efforts find quickly a fair salary.
