3-3 Draw between FC Zurich and FC Thun
In his first official match as the new FC Zurich head coach, Sami Hyypiä achieved a 3-3 draw against FC Thun.
After just 11 minutes, Franck Etoundi opened the score for the home side following a perfectly timed pass by Kevin Bua. And just before the half-time whistle, Zurich’s Oliver Buff doubled his team’s lead to 2-0 by magnificently converting a direct free kick.
After this deficit, the visitors from Thun were able to show a reaction during the second half, though, and managed to equalize the score at 2-2 thanks to goals by Roman Buess (53) and Nelson Ferreira (66). On 78 minutes, things really looked bright for FC Zurich and the home side looked like they might actually grab the three points tonight as Gilles Yapi scored the 3-2 for his colors in his first official match after being out injured for ten months. But unfortunately, this goal didn’t prove enough as Thun’s Simone Rapp equalized the score again at 3-3 in stoppage time (93), securing his team a vital point.
In their next two encounters, FC Zurich will be facing FC Wohlen (Würth Swiss Cup, Saturday) and FC Lugano (Super League, Tuesday).
