Sion vs Servette ends 0:0 - VAR technology has something against the sport of "luck" in the tourbillon

Sion vs Servette ends 0:0 – VAR technology has something against the sport of “luck” in the tourbillon

At the 77th minute, there was still some excitement in the tourbillon. Servet’s Steve Roehler kicked Elias El Shawarf off his feet in the penalty area, referee Sven Wolfensberger rightly pointed the point and also penalized Roehler with a yellow card. But Sion did not get a penalty. VAR communicated. Because: Right before the penalty scene, Dennis Poha illegally invaded the ball against Timothy Cognat. The penalty decision was reversed.

I stayed 0-0 – and that was a good thing. Because this game didn’t have a winner and somehow it didn’t deserve any goals. It was a match marked by countless bad passes and shortcomings between the two long-time opponents. Only in the first 20 minutes and between the 73rd and 78th there was some excitement in Valais.

Bauer caused excitement early

The game has already started hilariously. It became dangerous in Servet’s penalty area just 7 minutes after Moritz Bauer failed to hit the ball twice. In the 19th minute, only Latte Servettes prevented Patrick Plücke’s goal from achieving 1-0. In turn, Geneva goalkeeper Jeremy Frick had to save at full speed.

Then, idle time was the norm of the day – only disturbed by the Pyro boycott caused by Servette’s fans at the start of the second half. In the 73rd minute, Sion suddenly got a double chance. But Frick was in office. After the VAT scene, Seon kept pressing the “lucky punch” for a bit, but it was no longer successful.

This is how it goes

Servette undefeated (1 win, 2 draws). After 3 rounds, the goal difference in Geneva is 2:1. Sion has kept a clean sheet for the first time this season and is fourth behind Geneva.

The two teams will face Zurich in the next round. Servette welcomes newly promoted Winterthur on Saturday, Sion Sion guest hosts Swiss champions FCZ on Sunday.
