Animated match in La Praille. Servette could get past St. Gallen in the Super League standings, he will stay behind.
But this fight for 5th place continues to turn to the advantage of the Brodeurs, who took a point (2-2).
Still, this meeting to catch up on the 15th day could have turned from one side to the other. To Peter Zeidler’s men the start of the match, which they totally animated. Jérémy Guillemenot stumbled after three minutes on Jérémy Frick, but Basil Stillhart was quick to deceive the Geneva goalkeeper (7th). St. Gallen pressed and logically passed in front.
But Servette has once again demonstrated her ability to react. Without fussing, the Garnet equalized by Grejohn Kyei, who scored his 7th goal of the season following a magnificent cross from Miroslav Stevanovic (20th). The French striker then ran after his eighth achievement for ten minutes. But the fate was fierce against him.
Kyei could very well have scored the 2-1 three minutes later, but like in Lucerne last week, his penalty was refused by the opposing goalkeeper, Lawrence Ati Zigi in this case. And in the 27th, Kyei was once again very close to doubling the bet, but his try hit the St. Welsh post before flirting with the goal line, never crossing it completely.
Upon returning from the locker room, St. Gallen put the pressure back on. And it paid off once again, thanks to Guillemenot. The SFC-trained player took advantage of two bad clearances from Gaël Clichy and Anthony Sauthier to deceive Frick with a superb curled shot. But at the heart of a second period still very open, it was finally thanks to a goal against his own side from Betim Fazliji on a corner from Théo Valls that Servette took an always important point.
The other meeting this early evening also ended in a draw. Lugano took a point under (and over) the Lucerne snow. Olivier Custodio had converted a penalty in the 25th, before Dejan Sorgic equalized in the second half (53rd).
