The Young Boys celebrate their first win since 2013 in Geneva. The 6-0 win against Servette is the champions’ greatest success this season.
The clear result comes as a surprise, as Die Berner had traditionally struggled at the Stade de Genève, and Geneva were the only team that could win against YB last season and even twice.
The debacle from the Geneva perspective began in the 43rd minute. Goalie Jérémy Frick has dropped a cross from Meschack Elia. Nicolas Ngamaleu took over the ball and was knocked over by the Geneva goalkeeper. Referee Lukas Fähndrich decided after consulting the video referee on penalty for the Bernese and the other Frick from the field. Ngamaleu scored sovereignly from the point and thus initiated the Bern show.
After the break, the people of Geneva were visibly overwhelmed by the pace of the Bernese. Christian Fassnacht managed a hat trick within just 25 minutes. And Wilfried Kanga, who was used for the spared Jordan Siebatcheu, scored twice in the Super League for the first time.
Edin Omeragic, who was substituted on for Frick and made his debut in the top Swiss league, prevented an even bigger defeat, although it is the last defeat for Servette since the 2003/2004 season when the Geneva team 0: 6 in the seventh round lost in Basel.
Thanks to the victory, the Young Boys overtook FC Basel after losing points. With one game less, the gap is two points.
