Yverdon confirms its excellent arrangements at the start of the Challenge League championship. Marco Schällibaum’s squad dominated Thun 3-1 at the Municipal Stadium to pick up their second success in 3 days.
A double from Koné, his second in a row after the one signed in Vaduz 5 days earlier (3-3), and a success from Rodrigues (93rd) allowed Yverdon to force the decision against Thun and stay ahead of the ranking with 7 points.
The Neuchâtel Xamax counter, on the other hand, remains desperately blocked at 0 units. Coach Andrea Binotto’s men suffered their third defeat in as many outings, losing 2-0 on the lawn of Schaffhausen which made the difference thanks to goals from Agustin Gonzalez (57th) and Vladislav Cherny (84th) .
The LS reacts
Beaten at the promoted Bellinzona at the start of this championship, Lausanne-Sport also picked up its 2nd success in a row. Ludovic Magnin’s team won 2-1 in Aarau thanks to Alvyn Sanches (2nd success of the season) and Brighton Labeau (3rd achievement). Aarau reduced the penalty mark in the 88th. Co-leaders before this evening, the Argovians could even have snatched the point from a draw in stoppage time without a save from LS goalkeeper Thomas Castella on a shot from Mickaël Almeida.
