Lugano-Zug: analysis and highlights

The "verdict night" (Kloten and Bern in the Playoff, Lausanne and Ambrì in the playout) gives to Lugano the certainty to play against Zug in the playoff's quarterfinals and a game that on the nervous and attitude level inspires optimism.

The bianconeri won 3-2 after the overtime against the same rival we'll face in the playoff, in a game that seemed already a playoff game.

Knowing that the duel could be the same in the quarterfinals, Lugano and Zug wanted to send a message and mark the territory.

This gave birth to an intense match, with a lot of physical contact and fought until the game-winning goal scored by Pettersson at 61.10 after a nice "Ikea" give and go with Martensson and Klasen.

What we liked the most of the team was the fighting spirit that Lugano showed during the whole game. We fought for every centimeter. We allowed no easy play, an exemple the boxe-match won by Vauclair against Suri. Nice game by Merzlikins too.
