FC Zurich Beat FC Sion 3-1
FC Zurich have won their Super League away game against FC Sion 3-1 tonight.
Just four minutes in, Carlitos took advantage of the space that FC Zurich’s defenders granted him, but his shot was just wide. The visitors from Zurich launched their first promising attack on the Sion goal after about a quarter of an hour when Franck Etoundi passed the ball to Rodriguez on the right wing. The young Zurich player’s cross into the middle again found Etoundi, but the Cameroonian striker’s shot was off the mark.
But FC Zurich nonetheless took the lead on 20 minutes: After an assist by Yassine Chikhaoui, Davide Chiumiento kept his cool in front of Sion keeper Deana and netted in to put his side 1-0 up. This lead was only going to last 15 minutes, though, as Sion’s Vidosic equalised the score 1-1 for the home team shortly afterwards.
FC Zurich were unperturbed by this goal and went into the lead again before the half-time whistle when Rodriguez quickly played a free kick to Etoundi, who scored the 2-1 for the visitors.
The home team from Sion looked to equalise again, but FC Zurich were actually closer to scoring another goal when a free kick from around 20 metres by Asmir Kajevic hit the post.
The game was ultimately decided on 79 minutes when Franck Etoundi scored his second goal of the evening after a magnificent assist by Chikhaoui, putting the final result to 3-1 for FC Zurich.
FC Zurich will be facing FC Basel in their next Super League home game this coming Sunday afternoon.
