Thanks to a double strike in the first half, Thun wins against Winterthur with 2:1. Meanwhile, fears about the injury of midfielder Kenan Fatkic were confirmed.
It takes Thun three minutes to get the game against FC Winterthur on track. First, in the 18th minute of the game, it is 18-year-old youngster Daniel Dos Santos who keeps his nerve in front of Dario Marzino's goal after a counterattack and scores the 0:1. Only three minutes later Dos Santos serves Dominik Schwizer, who increases the score to 0:2 with a wonderful flick from the edge of the penalty area. Shortly after the restart of the second half, Gezim Pepsi manages to score after a corner kick to 1:2. After that, Winterthur presses vehemently for the equalizer. Thanks to a lot of luck, a brilliantly acting Andreas Hirzel in the goal of Thun and the inability of Winterthur to finish, it is still 1:2 after 96 minutes of play. With this victory, Thun comes back to within three points of league leader GC. However, the Grasshoppers do not play until tomorrow - away against last-place Chiasso.
