The UEFA Cup season is over in Zurich. The Swiss champions lost their last Europa League match against Arsenal 0-1 and finished last in Group A.

When the Premier League leaders meet those at the bottom of the Premier League, the balance of power is clear. Accordingly, Zurich’s expectations fell when it came to London’s trip to Arsenal, and a clear defeat seemed more likely than a victory for Zurich, which may have been necessary to spend the winter in the conference league.

It is clear that the people of Zurich did not lose. Kieran Tierney’s long-range goal was a quarter-hour later than Arsenal’s lone scorer, who started without Granit Xhaka, who was suspended, and also gave some key players a break before the league sparkled against Chelsea.

However, Bo Henriksen’s team didn’t come close to coming back from behind. Yannick Brecher hit back at FCZ’s goal with force several times and saved his team from falling behind. Thus, the Swiss champions certainly had the opportunity to snatch a point from the Emirates Stadium.

“We played for more than 90 minutes and didn’t hide,” Brecher summed up in Blue. “With a bit of luck we could have equalised. It was a good performance at the end of this European Cup campaign.”

The ball is in the goal – the goal does not count

Adrian Guerrero’s supposed equalizer was denied after a good hour because the Spaniard was offside when Antonio Marchesano, who came at the break, fired in. Bogdan and Junnick also came close to scoring his first goal for Zurich with a long-range shot, and in the last attack it was Marchesano who slipped just inches from the equalizer.

It would have been a respectable success, but it wouldn’t have kept FCZ on the European stage. Bodeau/Glimt lost 1:2 to PSV Eindhoven at the same time. A win was necessary for Zurich to reach the Conference League.
