FC Sion remains in the Premier League. Vali defended the lead from the first leg in the second second leg against Ton with great effort and managed to stay in the league despite a 2: 3 defeat.
Anyone who thought that the duel after Thursday 4-1 over the candidates from Falaise had already been settled was wrong. The Challenge League outer party played boldly at the tourbillon in glorious spring weather and made the candidates shiver again.
Guests were partly a hit thanks to the fresh look. They came up three times – the first time in the third minute – and they never gave up until the end. Ultimately, the 4: 1 handicap in Thursday’s first leg was too heavy.
The beginning of a dream for Thun
As in the first comparison, the Thuners started off brilliantly – and unlike on Thursday, they took their first opportunity to score this time. Omar Dzunlagic used an oblique cross from Jose Schmidt with his thigh. The blow clearly increased tension in the Valet and reinforced the belief of lower-class guests that they would still be able to turn things around.
It was the start of a great era when Thun was the top team. In the end, thanks to Valais’ Lubomer Topta, they were in little danger of losing their lead from the first leg. The Slovak calmed down the Valais with two beautiful singles. Half an hour later he used a free kick from 30 meters with a superb flick, in stoppage time in the first half he scored with a scorer style.
Thon fights for forgiveness – Sion must own the books
The 2-2 break at the break was a bad wage for the Thuners, who once again had to lay off many regular players. Just before the 1-1 draw, Salih Shehadeh missed a great opportunity to make it 2-0 when he failed to hit the rebound from Kevin Vicentur as he had requested.
Young Carlos Berniger’s team was not discouraged and played boldly after the break. And after the new Thon led by Nikki Havenar (55th), the home team was shaken again. The Thuners achieved several record stances, but the clear scoring chances for the fourth goal were non-existent.
In the end, Sion saved the lead over time. Valais’ performance was nothing but a sovereign and was apt for the spoiled season of the Sion family, which once again did not live up to their expectations.
