Sion finally managed to break out of its negative spiral after the 16th day of the Super League. Winners 2-1 from Thun to Tourbillon, the Valais have ended a series of 8 games without a win.
The whole strategy of the Valaisans was nearly damaged by a failed start. They were surprised in the 7th minute by a goal from Chihadeh. But their interim coach Christian Zermatten had a happy hand in his changes. Itaitinga equalized three minutes after his entry (67th) and Doumbia gave the victory to his team with a lobed head in the 79th on a center of Anto Grgic.
A stoppage by Kevin Fickentscher in the 81st minute against Simone Rapp allowed the Valaisans to keep the three points.
