- St. Gallen won the Cup semi-finals at Everdun 2:0 and reached the final for the second time in a row.
- Goals by Jeremy Gilimino and Jordi Quintella came after the break.
- In the final match on May 15th in Berne, ESPN meets Lugano, who beat Lucerne.
In the break, Everdon coach Ole Forte and the fans were in a good mood. The sun was shining in Vaud, 4,500 spectators – more than the Municipal Stadium for 16 years – created a good atmosphere and the home team challenged candidate St Gallen with a 0-0 draw. A little happy, but still.
In the first 45 minutes goalkeeper Kevin Martin kept his colors in the match several times. The 26-year-old particularly shone with a long-range shot from Jordi Quintilla (25th place) and a shot from Kwadwo Duah (45th place). Not enough Everdon came – just like after the tea break. Lukas Watkoviak “Goalkeeper’s Cup” for St. Gallen did not have to seriously interfere.
Wait a long time to win the second cup
In the end, the larger class of the Premier League team triumphed. Jeremy Guillemno and Quintella’s free kick ensured St Gallen’s deserved away win. For ESPN, it is the sixth entry in the cup final and the second in a row. In 2021, the Swiss national team lost the final against Lucerne. Green White has won the cup only once, and that was a long time ago: 1969.
An amazing trophy trip for Everdon ended. With the designated champions Zurich and Lausanne, the people of Vaud had already managed to defeat two higher-tier teams. However, on this Thursday, one cannot build on these feats.
Gallen’s opponent will be in Wankdorf Lugano on May 15th. Ticino defeated Lucerne in the semi-finals. Already this weekend there will be a final rehearsal in the Premier League between eastern Switzerland and Ticino in St. Gallen.
