"A point into the right direction," this is how head coach Bruno Berner summed up the game against St.Gallen. With the 1:1 draw, they were able to score a point again in the league after three unsuccessful games. Berner added: "The draw is fine. In this phase we are in, you have to take what you get." The Hoppers already have the chance to get the next points on Tuesday evening. They are away to their city rivals as the first Zurich derby of the current season is on the agenda.
FCZ will go into the derby with a lot of self-confidence. Although they have recently drawn three games in a row in the championship (against Lausanne-Sport, Basel and St.Gallen), Bo Henriksen's team, together with BSC YB, are still the only unbeaten teams. Part of the reason for this is their defence, which is the strongest in the league with only five goals conceded in seven games so far. FCZ is currently in third intermediate place with 13 points. Now they will host GC Zurich at home in the Letzigrund stadium.
For the match against FCZ, head coach Bruno Berner will have to do without the long-term injured Nigel Lonwijk, Michael Kempter and Tim Meyer. Otherwise, Berner has the entire squad at his disposal.
