Bernese beat Lucerne 3-0 – Leaders YB go into the World Cup break with a 10-point lead – Sport

YB fans will have to wait a good two and a half months for their favorite’s next home game. After all, the team made sure that the fans were spoiled again before the World Cup break. The Bernese gave a rock-solid performance against Lucerne and never raised doubts about the outcome of the match.

Set the course for victory right from the start

The home side set the course in Wankdorf from the start and were rewarded for it in the 5th minute. After a short corner, Kastriot Imeri crossed to the far post where Christian Fassnacht won an aerial challenge against Nicky Beloko to nod to make it 1-0. FCL goalkeeper Marius Müller cut an unfortunate figure on the line.

Lucerna had to focus on defense as well, but it didn’t work very well. In the 22nd minute, Imeri missed from the best finishing position thanks to a strong reaction from Müller, but he curled the ball into the visitors’ net for a second time 10 minutes later. Denis Simani hits the ball trying to clear a cross from Ulisses Garcia. Instead, it landed squarely on the head of Jean-Pierre Nsame, who gratefully accepted it and also made it 2-0 with his head.

Lantern too harmless

In the first minutes of the second half, Lucerna produced one or two good actions, but they didn’t want a goal. The Bernese, for their part, focused mainly on controlling the game and leading the lead.

When there was a chance to make a final decision, the leader immediately intervened. Making it 3-0 in the 70th minute, another cross from left-back Garcia saw Fassnacht skilfully pass in the penalty area for Sandro Lauper to score on the volley. The 26-year-old was substituted just seconds ago.

Here’s how to proceed

The Super League is now on a World Cup break for just over 2 months. As Servette sunk to the bottom of the FCZ 4-1 on Sunday, YB hibernate with a 10-point lead over first-place chasers from Geneva. Bernáci will play their next game on January 21 in Letzigrund against Grasshoppers.
