Thun remains unbeaten in the fourth game of the new year. Against Xamax, the Oberlanders win thanks to double goal scorer Omer Dzonlagic and Dominik Schwizer sovereign 3-0.
English weeks mean a special burden for the players. That's why coach Carlos Bernegger is making changes in four positions for the match against Neuchâtel Xamax compared to last Tuesday's game against Kriens. Among other things, Omer Dzonlagic replaces Nuno da Silva in the starting eleven. A rotation that pays off. After a sharp cross from Grégory Karlen, Dzonlagic is in the right place and scores to make it 1:0. Fifteen minutes later, a deflected cross from Karlen lands again with Dzonlagic from Meiringen, and again the ball lands in the net to make it 2:0.
As at the beginning of the first half, the Thun team struggles with the Neuchâtel team's style of play after the change of ends. But again the Oberlanders adjust well to the opponent and find better and better into the game. In the 69th minute of the game, Dominik Schwizer completes a perfectly executed counterattack with the goal to 0:3. (nth)
