SC Cham loses their last game in Zurich in 2021
The Zurich offspring stop their high spirits in Cham
The sports club is defeated by the U21 team of the professional club 1: 3 in the Promotion League. There was simply too much missing from his game. He also gave the opponent the winning goal.
SC Cham missed closing the year with a good final impression. After three wins in a row, they lost 3-1 in Zurich. The guests made it easy for the FCZ U21 team headed by Genesio Colatrella (ex-assistant coach in Lucerne) to defeat him. A dropout by Kevin Röthlisberger initiates the decisive goal in the 36th minute. The full-back wanted to pass the ball to a teammate, but instead played to Salim Khelifi from Zurich. The striker with Super League experience gratefully accepted the gift and missed Chams goalkeeper Marco Peterhans his farewell game.
This hit came just two minutes after Lukas Riedmann hit the equalizer for Chamer. That was the result of one of the few successful attacks across multiple stations. Often the guests lacked precision in the passes, which had a merciless effect on the artificial turf. The Zurich resident feels visibly more comfortable on the fast underground.
Involuntary assists by the Chamer
However, the sports club also reported bad luck for the other goals conceded. In both 1-0 (22nd) and 3-1 (69th), the ball accidentally jumped off the leg of central defender Manuel Fäh to the goal scorer Henri Koide. Nevertheless, the Zurich victory was completely okay. The Cham trainer Roland Schwegler saw it that way. He wants a viewer who, after the end of the game, spoke of an “undeserved success” for Zurich, jokingly about which match he was in.
This puts SC Cham in sixth place at the turn of the year Promotion League. That sounds good, but it is deceptive: 14th place is only six points away.
