FC Zurich have lost their away game against FC Sion 1-3 tonight.

In a well-balanced first half, the hosts from the canton of Valais managed to open the score on just 14 minutes. Moussa Konaté, who had given away quite a few chances in FC Sion’s last match against FC Vaduz, took advantage of a mistake by young Zurich defender Anto Grgic and put his side 1-0 up. FC Zurich were able to show an immediate reaction, though, and Armando Sadiku equalized the score 1-1 following a well-timed cross by Philippe Koch – it was the Albanian striker’s second goal of the current season.

But unfortunately, the visitors from Zurich had to concede yet another goal before the half-time whistle, when Carlitos directly converted a free-kick in the 38th minute; FC Zurich keeper Yanick Brecher did not stand a chance to save his ball.

During the second half, the team of interim head coach Massimo Rizzo pushed for the equalizer and would really have merited the 2-2. Instead, it was again Konaté, however, who finished off a swift counter-attack and put the final score to 1-3 on 79 minutes.

FC Zurich will be facing FC Tavannes-Tramelan in their Würth Swiss Cup game this Sunday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).
