FC Zurich with 0-3 Defeat against Young Boys Berne
FC Zurich have lost this afternoon’s away game against Young Boys Berne 0-3.
The hosts from Berne took the lead on 12 minutes when Guillaume Hoarau was able to convert a rebound from close range. With a little over half an hour on the clock, Leonardo Bertone headed the ball home, doubling Young Boys Berne’s advantage and giving them a 2-0 lead. FC Zurich were rather unlucky in this situation, however, since they were one man down as captain Yassine Chikhaoui was being treated by the touchlines after a rude foul by Renato Steffen.
Matters got worse for FC Zurich just before the half-time whistle when Chikhaoui was awarded a straight red card: Zurich’s Tunisian captain had slapped Steffen in the face after the referee had not blown his whistle following a foul by the Young Boys player on Chikhaoui. With one player less on the pitch during the second half, Hoarau converted a penalty in the 57th minute, putting the final score to 0-3.
FC Zurich remain third in the Swiss Super League despite this loss. They will be facing FC Lucerne in their next home game on April 4.
