EVZ fails clearly at RB Munich

Déjà-vu for Swiss champions Zug: As in 2018, the Central Swiss are eliminated in the Champions League in front of their own audience against RB Munich. At that time with a 0-2 in the second leg of the second round, this time even with a 1: 6 clap at the end of the group stage.

In the two other Champions League duels between the NL and DEL representatives on Wednesday, the Swiss teams also fell by the wayside. Lugano lost to the Berlin polar bears 2-4. In the end, Lausanne won 3-1 in Mannheim. But the Germans were already known as the round of 16 before the start of the game, while the Vaudois were already eliminated.

Munich convinced in Zug with determination in the duels and straightforward play structure. As a result, the Germans presented the Swiss champions with considerable problems. Julian Schütz scored twice for the guests.

And the otherwise almost without exception flawless EVZ keeper Leonardo Genoni moved in for a black evening. The Swiss national goal left an unfortunate impression when Bastian Eckl (3rd), Frederik Tiffels (25th) and Schütz (31st) scored.

That is why Genoni was replaced by Luca Hollenstein after conceding the third goal. Philip Gogulla then eliminated the last doubts about the progress of the Germans with a counter goal to 4-1 (42nd). Immediately before Munich’s 4: 1, Fabrice Herzog had missed the possible connecting goal for Zug to make it 2: 3. For Zug, a point win against the DEL leader would have been enough to advance. The only EVZ goal was scored by Jan Kovar at 1: 1 in the meantime.

Munich has thus reached the knockout phase in all six Champions League appearances to date. In 2018, Munich had already been able to prevail against Zug on the way to the final in the round of 16.

Lugano made up a 0-2 deficit in the 2: 4 against Eisbären Berlin in the meantime. The Ticino started the race to catch up immediately after a timeout by coach Chris McSorley in the middle of the game. Just 80 seconds later, Loïc Vedova scored the connecting goal. And another 82 seconds later, Bernd Wolf made it 2-2. But Whyte’s second goal (46th) to 3-2 decided the game. Lugano would have needed a two-point win to advance.

The round of 16 drawn on Friday with two Swiss representatives, Friborg-Gottéron and the ZSC Lions, will take place on 16./17. November (first leg date) or 23/24. November.
