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 part.

The ‘Z’ validated their ticket because of their 5-1 victory in opposition to Fehervar on Saturday.

The nice success acquired in opposition to brave Hungarians may 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 individuals dried up for a very long time in entrance of goalkeeper Horvath.

A brace from Sweden’s Wallmark put the group on the street to victory. A assured success with two targets 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 choosing up their fourth success in 4 Pool B outings, crushing TPS Turku 6-1 because of victories from Martschini, Cehlarik, Hansson, Herzog, O’Neill and Hofman.

Rapp eradicated

Rapperswil-Jona is eradicated, regardless of a primary victory snatched in time beyond regulation 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’.
