Defeat against SLO – last place spoils Servet's jump to the leader's throne – Sports

Defeat against SLO – last place spoils Servet's jump to the leader's throne – Sports

  • Servette surprisingly lost 2-1 at home to Stade Lausanne Ouchey in Round 30 of the Premier League.
  • The Geneva boys miss a lot of chances and once again miss out on becoming leaders of the Swiss First League for the first time in 21 years.
  • In the other match on Wednesday evening, FCZ and Winterthur tied 0-0.

Nearly 80 minutes had been played at Geneva when Jérémie Guilleminot caught SLO goalkeeper Jérémy Faccio at the near post. The compensation offered by Geneva was undoubtedly fully deserved. The home team has previously squandered chances in multiple packages. A goal was also disallowed twice due to offside. A Geneva player was offside 12 times on Wednesday evening.

Guilleminot's goal (78') was also briefly checked by VAR, but the score was ruled 1-1. However, the joy only lasted for a short time. Vitaly Damascene (84) crowned a quick counterattack for the Lausanne visitors shortly afterward by advancing again. The Moldovan striker gave Joel Moll no chance with his shot into the far corner.

Again, not the leader

For Servette, it was only their first home defeat in 11 matches. After the Easter Sunday opportunity, the Geneva club missed out on the chance to go top of the Premier League table for the second time in the space of a few days. If one point had been enough against Winterthur at the weekend, 3 points would have been needed on Wednesday to overtake YB at least temporarily.

Rene Weiler's team has to take care of itself. The Geneva boys had a lot of chances, but they wasted them one after another. They often found themselves in their own way – or on the sly. In stoppage time, with the score supposed to be 2-2, Geneva's third goal was disallowed due to an offside situation.

Stade-Lausanne-Ouchy performed more efficiently than the home team. Equally surprising was the winning goal from the bottom of the table. Alban Ajdini was launched deep by a beautiful pass from Ismail Gharbi and shot the ball without stopping under the crossbar.

And this is how it continues

With Thursday's win over GC, YB can extend its lead in the table to 4 points. Next weekend, Servette play at home again and welcome FC Zurich. Stade Lausanne Ouchey meets Basel at home.
