FC Zurich draw Neuchâtel Xamax 1:1

The Challenge League game between FC Zurich and Neuchâtel Xamax has ended in a 1:1 draw this evening.

FC Zurich took control of the game from kick-off. Nevertheless, it was the home team from Neuchâtel which had the very first clear-cut scoring opportunity of the evening by Karlen, but his shot was just off target. 20 minutes in, Dwamena’s ball found Rodriguez whose shot unfortunately whizzed past the far post.

On 51 minutes, Yapi’s long through ball found Winter. He passed the ball on to Dwamena in front of the Xamax goal and the Ghanaian striker opened the score for FC Zurich. Following this 1:0 lead, the visitors from Zurich continued to control the action on the pitch.

FC Zurich then had several excellent chances to decide the game: Nef‘s header after a corner kick by Buff was stopped by a defender just before the line. And only a few moments later, Koné should have scored the second Zurich goal of the match, but his header from close range was off target.

Just before the final whistle, the visitors then paid the price for not converting any of these brilliant opportunities: Nimani beat three FC Zurich players in the air following a long pass and set up Teixeira, who managed to equalize the score at 1:1 on 87 minutes.

Next Sunday afternoon, 30 April 2017, FC Zurich will be facing Chiasso away (kick-off 3:00pm).
