Neuchatel Xamax lost the match he should not lose. Defeated 3-2 at the Maladiere by FC Thun, the Xamaxians have spent a golden opportunity to break their opponents of the day.
Thanks to this victory over a success of Chris Kablan in the 86th minute, the players of the Oberland are only three points behind the ranking on Neuchatel Xamax. They stayed on a series of five losing defeats. With a sixth, they would have had a foot in the grave.
This defeat is cruel to the Xamaxians. Led 2-0 after a magnificent double of Miguel Castroman (48th and 52nd) – his second goal is a real gem – they had the immense merit of picking up the score thanks to Arbenit Xhemajli (64th) and Gaetan Karlen (84th) ). Before being crucified two minutes later by a subtle deviation of Kablan's head.
In Lucerne, Servette FC has, for the first time this season, picked up a second victory of rank. Six days after his brilliant success against the Young Boys (3-0), the formation of Alain Geiger won 2-0 at the swissporarena. Author of the opener in the 9th on a brilliant heel – the goal of the year? – and assist for Varol Tasar's 2-0 (24th), Grejohn Kyei was the hero of the game. The defector of Reims, whose first steps with the Grenat were painstaking, fully justified the confidence of Alain Geiger. And if he was the great center-forward that was missing so far at Servette FC?
