In Zurich, both teams recorded a strong and a weak half. So the point is fine, but it doesn’t help either SC Brühl or Zurich, who are still 3 points behind St. Gallen in the table. Offensively, the crowns show too harmless a performance in the current games.
(SC Brühl) The World Cup started in Qatar on Sunday, November 20th. In the Swiss Promotion League, however, there are still two matchdays to be played before the winter break begins. The SC Brühl players are going to Zurich on Saturday to join the FCZ second team. The young people of Zurich are still 3 points behind the crowns in the table and could catch up with them with a win. For their part, the Brühlers have wanted to get a 3-er for a long time. The last win of the season was on September 10th, also more than 2 months ago.
However, the hosts got off to a better start and took control of the game right from the start. Less than 10 minutes were played as Labinot Bajrami to 1:0 for the home team. The Brühlers also had to come into play early on and showed trouble. The guests often try to get into the danger center with long balls, but without becoming really dangerous. The best chances in the first half were missed by Slobodan Mihajlovic twice from a promising position after good preliminary work from Elia Rosalen and Angelo Campos.
During the break, Denis Sonderegger seemed to have found the right words for his boys. Because during the second half, the Brühler dominated the opponent over long distances. Offensively, the eastern Swiss often acted too harmlessly. It was still 1-0 for the home side with a quarter of an hour to go when Mergim Bajrami plucked up courage from the baseline and shot straight at the goal, but only hit the post. The goalscorer Labinot Bajrami scored the only notable chance for Zurich in the second half, but Alban Berisha kept the visitors in the game with a big save.
Di Nucci with deserved compensation
The efforts were rewarded shortly before the end. Sandro Di Nucci was launched with a through ball and scored the equalizer with a remarkable flick into the far corner. The Brühler then sensed the chance and didn’t want to settle for a point. But time was running out for the eastern Swiss. But after the numerous changes and foul-related interruptions, 4 minutes of overtime were to be expected. But since the Brühler had reckoned without referee David Schärli. After only about a minute, he put an abrupt end to the Brühler mission with his final whistle.
The crowns remain without a win in the 11th game. Coach Denis Sonderegger sees the problems primarily on the offensive, “We are currently acting too harmlessly on the offensive and have too little penetrating power. Today we were clearly the better team in the second half and deserved to equalize”. The last chance in 2022 for a complete success will be offered to SC Brühl again in Zurich in a week, at YF Juventus.
