FC Zurich draw FC St Gallen 1-1
The final championship game of the 2018/2019 season between FC Zurich and FC St Gallen has ended in a 1-1 draw tonight.
Already in the second minute of tonight’s clash with FC St.Gallen, Marco Schönbächler had the first opportunity to put the home side in front following a delivery by Khelifi, but his shot was deflected over the crossbar by St.Gallen keeper Dejan Stojanovic. However, the visitors now looked like the more dangerous side and took the lead on 16 minutes when Guillemenot scored the 1-0 for FC St.Gallen.
FC Zurich had more ball possession throughout the first half, but unfortunately, they did not manage to equalize despite two opportunities by Stephen Odey still before the half-time whistle as the Nigerian striker was off target following a cross by Schönbächler and the St Gallen defense blocked his shot just a few minutes later.
After the half-time break, FC Zurich finally equalized the score 1-1 thanks to a brilliant one-timer by Khelifi (50th minute). Although both teams then had several chances to score the game-winning goal, the score remained unchanged until the final whistle. With this draw, FC Zurich have picked up 44 points and finish the 2018/2019 season in 7th place.
