FC Zurich draw Neuchâtel Xamax FCS 1-1
Tonight’s home game between FC Zurich and Neuchâtel Xamax FCS at the Letzigrund Stadium has ended in a 1-1 draw.
The visitors from Neuchâtel had the very first chance of the game through Samir Ramizi, but Zurich goalkeeper Yanick Brecher was able to deflect his shot over the crossbar thanks to an excellent reaction. However, the keeper then didn’t stand a chance to keep out the resulting corner as Ošs deflected a shot from Ramizi to find the back of the net and put Xamax 1-0 in front (6th minute).
It took the FC Zurich players a couple of moments to regain their focus and be able to react to this deficit. In the 19th minute, the 1-1 equalizer by Aiyegun Tosin following an assist from Kramer was disallowed due to an offside position. But in the 26th minute, FC Zurich were more successful when Kramer beat the Xamax keeper to equalize the score 1-1; Simon Sohm had provided the assist.
Throughout the second half, FC Zurich then had several promising chances to score the 2-1 through Pa Modou (header in the 61st minute and shot in the 83rd minute), Kramer (70th minute), Adrian Winter (91st minute) and Simon Sohm with the last chance of the game in the 93rd minute. However, since none of these were converted, tonight’s game at the Letzigrund Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw.
