Our match report, the key player, video highlights and match statistics.


Zürich vs Lugano ended 0-0… overall, it was a boring match played in an empty and sad stadium during a freezing December afternoon.

A couple of days ago we said that Lugano could ask Santa a bit of “luck” as a Christmas Present… Well, the Bianconeri could unwrap an early present! More precisely, they could do it in the 90th minute of play when Zürich’s last attempt ended on the post. We mean, finally a bit of luck for Lugano.

But it was that kind of luck that favours the brave! Right, because Lugano were the better side in terms of play during the first 60 minutes. This, however, led to only a couple of sporadic chances… and the first real shot on target came early after the break.

Then, as the game went by, Zürich grew and started to search for the win. During the last 20 minutes, Magnin’s troops had enough chances to score but missed them.

And so the match ended goalless. All in all, fair enough.
