Despite a good performance and some good opportunities, the Hoppers were beaten 0:1 in their last game. This was the first match in which the Hoppers failed to score a goal this season. "That's football, sometimes it hurts. We showed a good match. [...] The only thing that was missing were the goals," said head coach Bruno Berner after the defeat against Luzern. Now his team travels to Lausanne for the second time this season, but this time they are guests of FC Stade Lausanne Ouchy for the first time.
Captain Amir Abrashi expects a reaction: "The defeat against Lucerne was very annoying. We were often able to make our presence felt in the offensive, but were harmless in front of goal. Now we have to correct that against Stade Lausanne Ouchy and get some points.
The promoted team has not yet been able to gain a good grip in the CSSL. The Vaudois have played four games so far, their game in the 5th CSSL round against Bern Young Boys was postponed until the beginning of December. The four games played have resulted in a draw (against Servette FC) and three defeats. Thus, SLO currently finds itself in last place in the table.
Head coach Bruno Berner will have to do without Nigel Lonwijk and Michael Kempter for the match against Lausanne-Ouchy. Giotto Morandi and Tsiy Ndenge are expected to be ready for action again. Newcomers Joshua Laws, Awer Mabil, Dorian Babunski and Théo Ndicka are also all eligible to play!
