- EV Zug beat Servette 2-1 away and wins the second match of the last series.
- All three goals are in the power game.
- This means Zug could perfect the club’s second championship title on Friday.
Two minutes before the end of the middle third, it became clear in Les-Vernets-Halle what had been doubtful for nearly 100 minutes: Leonardo Ginoni is only human. Against the accurate wrist shot by Noah Rudd, who had completed a powerful play set to make it 1: 1, the train’s goalkeeper, who had previously seemed invincible, was weak.
But my genius can depend on the people in front of him. In the 43rd minute, Erik Fehr had to go into the penalty area for the third time. After 42 seconds, the disc appeared in the Geneva case for the second time. Raphael Diaz’s shot, Dario Simeon deflected – 1-2. Since Genoni closed hurdles again, this was Zug’s second tight win in the series. In the offensive game, Servette found it difficult to create something surprising – despite the return of Linus Omark, who missed Game 1 due to an upset stomach.
Diaz – Simeon for the first
After a smooth start in third place, Simion EVZ put it first in the power game (33). This was planned after 2-1. Simeon converted a Diaz shot to Daniel Manzato’s goal 3 seconds before the majority finished. Responsible for the punishment – you guessed it: Fehr. In the 28th minute, Zug’s Justin Abdelkader missed the post after a counterattack when he was outnumbered.
Mr. Zug again after 23 years?
While Geneva’s hopes for a first-time championship title in club history have dimmed sharply, EV Zug is on its way to becoming a champion again for the second time since 1998. In the latter series, it plays only the best of 5 for reasons related. In Corona, the Swiss Central will have the first opportunity to do so on Friday at home (7.45pm live, SRF second).
