On August 3, 2014, FCZ won the Premier League for the last time against YB. At Domestic Letzigrund, he followed the next setback in Round 30 of the current tournament. To the newly crowned champions, Zurich lost 1: 2.
Massimo Rizzo would have had a point against YB. Zurich’s squad pressed an equalizing goal in the second half, but remained unbroken against the newly formed YB defense without injured captain Fabien Lustenberger.
YB trembles to the end
YB was mostly harmless on counterattacks and had to tremble for victory to the end. In the 93rd minute, the Champions nearly punished for their passivity when Aegon Tossen found his master in David von Palmos with his head at close range. Blairim Dzemayli had already failed alone in front of goal against the powerful YB goalkeeper (78th).
While Bernese scored their fifth successive victory, FCZ had been waiting for 6 games to win. Just two or five points behind the 9th and 10th places, Rizzo’s team remains in serious danger of relegation.
Guest prefer Zurich
Before the match began, FCZ President Ancelo Canepa presented the guest from Bern with a bouquet of flowers in honor of the fourth consecutive tournament. His players also distributed gifts on the field:
- 8. Minutes: Mishak Elia places the ball in the middle, as Hickoran Crizio heads for his own goal.
- 24. minutes: Felix Mambebe runs a very short pass back from Tony Dumgoni and scores 2-0 for YB.
However, after only 5 minutes, the residents of Zurich were able to react in the person of Blaz Kramer. The Slovenian ended the match with a score of 1: 2 after FCZ switched quickly after a bad pass from Sandro Lauper.
The connection appears to have been an inspiration for the Zurich team. First Fidan Aliti failed on von Palmos (37), then the alleged equalizer was not given by Tosin (41) due to offside.
So it continues
YB welcomes FC Sion in Wankdorf on Sunday. On the same day, FC Zurich will be a guest at their neighbors’ Lucerne table.
