Can Servette play for the top spots this season?
It takes half an hour for Genevans to reward themselves for their superiority. A quick one-two on the left undermines the Lausanne defensive. Valls crosses to the middle, there Stevanovic rises higher than Suzuki and nods to 1-0.
Servette FC is not recovering from equalization
But the guests come out of nowhere to equalize before the break. During a free kick, Cespedes holds his opponent by his shirt, the referee points to the point. Kukuruzovic humorlessly converted the following penalty kick to 1: 1.
After the break, Servette FC pushes the renewed lead, Kastriot Imeri has the first huge chance. With a long-range shot, he duped the Lausanne goalkeeper, but his ball only clapped on the crossbar.
There remains the greatest chance in a second half when the quality lags significantly behind the first. The Genevans miss out on the connection to YB and the FCZ. With one more game, the gap to leaders Basel is already three points.
