FC Zurich draw FC Sion 1-1
The away game between FC Zurich and FC Sion has ended in a 1-1 draw tonight.
After just three minutes, FC Sion took the early lead in tonight’s game when Luan, following a shot by Filip Stojilkovic, made use of a rebound on Zurich keeper Yanick Brecher and scored the 1-0 for the home side. Luckily enough, FC Zurich were able to show an immediate reaction: A shot by Mimoun Mahi in the 6th minute went over the crossbar by a narrow margin and just four minutes later, the visitors got the 1-1 equalizer through Schönbächler; Kevin Rüegg had provided the assist.
FC Zurich then had several more chances to score, among them a header by Nathan (16th minute) and a shot by Kramer from close range (18th minute), but unfortunately they did not manage to convert any of them.
Throughout the second half, both teams had several good scoring opportunities. However, since neither FC Zurich nor the home team from Sion were able to find the back of the net a second time, tonight’s match ended in a 1-1 draw. With this result, FC Zurich remain in fifth place of the Super League table with 31 points.
Next Saturday evening, 8 February 2020, FC Zurich will be hosting FC Basel at the Letzigrund Stadium (kick-off 7pm).
