The promoted side missed their first home win since the start of October at 2:2 because Lucerne scored two goals in the last half hour.
FC Lucerne increased the pace too late. At least it was too late for the important win that would have brought them close to eighth savings place. Like last week against Lugano, he scored the race after 0:2 another point. After a good hour, Osama Abu Bakr’s heel hit 1-2 after a low pass from Marco Kvasina, and in the 90th minute, Sylvain Seidler, who came on as a substitute, scored half a ball to make the score 2-2. .
More could have been achieved for FC Lucerne. Only in the half-pressing phase did the cup winner create two more chances that should have resulted in goals. Twice, GC goalkeeper Andre Moreira managed half-lucky and half-skilled saves from an almost desperate position: against a header from Marco Kvasina (60) and against Dejan Surgic (75).
Not surprisingly, grasshoppers were weak. They have not won in eight matches. What is surprising, however, is how long they set the tone against Lucerne. Alain Arrigoni after a corner kick (13) and Francis Momoh after a counterattack (29) gave Zurich a two-goal lead. The game only turned after the break.
