The Zurich Lions already certified for the spherical of 16
The Zurich Lions have already secured their qualification for the knockout levels of the Champions League with two video games remaining within the preliminary section.
The “Z” validated their ticket due to their 5-1 success in opposition to Fehervar on Saturday.
The good success acquired in opposition to brave Hungarians could be very flattering for the gamers of coach Rikard Grönborg. Regardless of the presence of all their star gamers like Mikko Lehtonen, Dean Kukan, Alexandre Texier or Lucas Wallmark, the Zurich folks dried up for a very long time in entrance of goalkeeper Horvath.
A brace from Sweden’s Wallmark put the group on the highway to victory. A assured success with two objectives within the empty cage on the finish of the sport. Not essentially reassuring 5 days earlier than the beginning of the Nationwide League Championship in opposition to Rapperswil-Jona.
Zug, however, doesn’t but formally have its ticket for the spherical of 16 in its pocket. However the reigning Swiss champions went one step additional by selecting up their fourth success in 4 Pool B outings, crushing TPS Turku 6-1 due to victories from Martschini, Cehlarik, Hansson, Herzog, O’Neill and Hofman.
Rapperswil-Jona is eradicated, regardless of a primary victory snatched in extra time in Finland. The Lakers gained 3-2 in Tampere, leveling at 2-2 with 1’25” remaining in regulation time earlier than forcing the choice by means of Jordan Schroeder after 3’38” of additional play, in “energy play”.
