The strong words of the last few days did not have the desired effect on FC Sion. Christian Constantin and Mario Balotelli’s strikes against the league may have been seen as a wake-up call for their own team, but Sitten’s men faced St. They presented Gallen as particularly unstable and insecure. Three days after the lucky progress in the cup against Wilo, the stronger Eastern Swiss were outnumbered.
From the 27th to the 60th minute, FC St. Gallen scored seven goals and led from 0:1 to 7:1. FCSG had no trouble playing through the three-man defense that coach Paolo Tramezzani set as an exception for this match. After a few days of flu, captain Lukas Görtler shined with two goals and two assists. Emmanuel Latte Lath scored three times and now has six league goals.
Scoring in a tourbillon has never been so good. Just around half an hour after Balotelli’s early goal from the penalty spot (5th), Sion fought back in earnest despite the support of the 10,500 crowd. Even after equalizing it looked increasingly vulnerable and almost every attack St. Gallen exposed the defensive. Sion are the first team in over four years to concede seven goals in Super League.
