(Translated by Thomas Snaith)

 

13.20h: Both teams enter the pitch to warm up before the game. The atmosphere is starting to build.

 

13.45:The line ups are announced:

 

FCB: Vaclik; Xhaka, Schär, Suchy, Traoré; Elneny, Frei; Callà, Zuffi, Gashi; Streller.

 

FCS: Vanins; Zverotic, Lacroix, Ziegler, Pa Modou; Salatic; Assifuah, Kouassi, Fernandes, Carlitos; Konaté.

 

13.53: The teams return onto the pitch, led by referee Nikolaj Hänni.

 

14.00: Kick off.

 

14.08: Sion exert pressure in the first few minutes.

 

14.17: Moussa Konaté scores; 1:0 for FC Sion. Carlitos´ sudden pass left Vailati without a chance. Sion´s goal not undeserved.

 

14.22: Big save from Vailati, diverting Konaté´s header over the bar. At least we think it was Konaté. The numbers on the Sion shirts are hard to identify as they have gold number on white shirts.

 

14.28: Best FCB chance of the game so far, but Luca Zuffi arrives too late to make use of the situation.

14.34: The referee interrupts the game as Marco Streller is  treated at the side of the pitch. He was struck by objects thrown from the crowd. All players are gathered in the centre of the pitch.

 

14.39: The game continues.

 

14.43: Big chance: Zuffi attempts to divert a shot on target by Adam Traoré, but without success. The ball lands next to the goal. After FC Sion’s strong start, FCB is gaining control.

 

14.45: 5 Minutes of stoppage time announced.

 

14.50: Half Time. It was a passionate and hectic first half at St. Jakob Park. Sion created the better chances and deserves to be leading 1:0. If FCB want to win this cup final, they need to step up their game in the second half.

 

15.07: The stadium speaker announces: "The referee has decided to interrupt the game due to occurrences in the sector where the FC Sion supporters are located." There was visibly lots of smoke from fireworks which were lit. This occured during the half time break.

 

15.19: Now the second half can begin. Both teams without any substitutions.

 

15.24: Goal for FC Sion. Edimilson Fernandes scores to make it 2:0. It was yet again Carlitos who made the assist. Fernandes had no trouble beating keeper Vailati. Now it is going to be a struggle for FCB to get back into the game.

 

15.27: First FCB substitution: Davide Callà replaced by Hamoudi.

 

15.34: 3:0 for FC Sion. The ex-FCB player Carlitos scores with a diving header after an assist by Elsad Zverotic.

 

15.42: The best FCB chance of the game. Streller´s shot from short distance didn´t have enough power though to cause any trouble for Sion keeper Vanins.

 

15.46: Vailati prevents Konaté from scoring. One can feel sorry for the FCB keeper, but he is playing a strong game.

 

15.49: Sousa makes a double substitution: Matias Delgado replaces Taulant Xhaka and Albian Ajeti replaces Marco Streller. Basel´s captain probably imagined a more positive departure from his professional football career.

 

15.55: Its just isn’t FCB´s day. Gashi´s header just stopped on the line by Pa Modou.

 

15.59: The last substitution of the game: Konaté is replaced by Dimitris Christofi.

 

16.04: The game is over. Sion wins the 90th cup final 3:0; well deserved.  clearly the better team, they played with more passion and created more chances. FCB were dissapointing in their last game of the 2014/2015 season. FC Sion remain unbeaten in every cup final they have ever played; this being their 13th. After many positive records, FC Basel is now the only team in Switzerland to have ever lost 3 consecutive cup finals.
