1:1 against St. Gallen – Fink secures a draw for GC in an unsettled encounter – Sports

Bruno Berner tried everything he could in the second half to prevent his team from suffering a fourth defeat in a row. With Francis Momoh, Dorian Babunski and Bradley Fink, he replaced three strikers. Joker Fink did score: in the 80th minute he happily scored to make it 1-1 for GC. St. Gallen defender Jozo Stanic made a decisive save on the shot.

The guests ran persistently again in the final stage, but that was no longer enough for ESPN to win. Peter Zeidler's side also lamented Chadrack Akolo's brilliant chance to make it 2-0 in the 54th minute. The Congolese could have made himself a match-winner with his second goal of the evening, but he managed to fire the ball past GC goalkeeper Justin Hamill from close range. .

A draw doesn't help either team much in the current situation. GC is still in danger of losing Paragplatz, one point ahead of Lausanne Sport, and St. Gallen is also in danger of losing touch with Lugano and Zurich at the top of the standings.

Akolo takes advantage of Bock in GC defence

It was clear from the match held in Letzigrund that the self-confidence of the two teams was not at its best after their poor performance in the recent period. Many mistakes characterized the event from the beginning.

It was no surprise that FCSG's 1-0 lead shortly before half-time was also the result of an unfortunate incident: GC defender Kristers Tobers ignored Hamel when he lunged in a really innocuous situation and put the ball against the crossbar. There he found not his colleague Ayumu Seko, but Akolo. The St. Gallen striker only needed to score his 10th goal of the season.

ESPN's lead had already become clear in the previous minutes. However, Hummel prevented Christian Witzig and Willem Gebels from scoring with strong saves. When the GC goalkeeper was beaten, Witzig's cross was saved and hit the crossbar for Zurich, who could have taken the lead in the first half through Felipe de Carvalho.

And this is how it continues

After the international break, both GC and St. Gallen will not return to action until Easter Monday. Both play a home match: GC hosts Lausanne Sport in a basement duel, and St. Gallen takes on Lucerne.
