Thanks to a 1-0 win at SLO – the highs continue: Winterthur is in the Championship Group – Sport

The decisive scene on the Pontaise took place in the 28th minute: referee Lionel Tschudi sent Sahmkou Camara into the shower early after a short VAR study. The Guinean, in the service of Stade-Lausanne-Ouchy, was the last man to hold back Adrian Gantenbein on the halfway line during a Winterthur counterattack.

After a committed start, the home team subsequently retreated and Winterthur found its way into the game better and better. The guests’ first real chance came shortly before half-time when SLO goalie Jérémy Vachoux cleared Matteo Di Giusto’s shot only to Basil Stillhart, who hammered the ball onto the crossbar.

Crossbar, VAR, crossbar, goal

After the break, the Eulachstädter’s pressure increased increasingly. First, a goal from Sayfallah Ltaief was canceled because Granit Lekhaj had been too impetuous when winning the ball. Just a little later the crossbar saved the hosts a second time. She prevented a dream goal from Di Giusto, who tried a remarkable volley.

In the 68th minute, the Winterthur team could finally celebrate. After a mix-up in the home team’s penalty area, a cross shot from Stillhart landed at Aldin Turkes, who had no trouble netting the winning goal into the empty box.

Advance to 4th place

Since the Vaudois were no longer able to react and the guests missed the final decision, the score remained 1-0 until the end. The Winterthur team not only celebrated their first three-pointer after two draws in a row, but also their jump to fourth place in the table and their definitive participation in the Championship Group.

Patrick Frame’s strong team has now been unbeaten in 12 games across all competitions. In addition to the strong 4th place in the league, they are also in the semi-finals of the cup. On the other hand, the newcomer from Lake Geneva remains 7 points behind GC in 11th place and the threat of relegation is getting closer and closer.

This is how it continues

In the last round before the division of the league, the two teams are aiming for the best possible starting position for the second phase of the season. Stade-Lausanne-Ouchy will be visiting Yverdon-Sport on Lake Neuchâtel on Saturday. Winterthur welcomes Leader YB to the Schützenwiese on Sunday.
