Luzern were made to work hard for more than 85 minutes before scoring two times to beat battling St. Gallen 2-0 in their Swiss Super League opener at Kybunpark on Saturday, reports Futbalgalore.com.
The Luminaries were troubled by the disciplined St.Gallen, who wanted to pick a positive result in the 2019/20 Swiss Super League week one encounter.
Carelessness crept into Luzern’s game, allowing the homers grow bolder and venture forward in search of the “Golden Fleece”.
The visiting team, however, got an expected break when Eleke easily dispatched his effort from the penalty spot in the 87th minute.
Their second effort was a textbook break with Christian Schneuwly scoring at injury time as Luzern’s nerves finally settled.
Eleke, 23, scored 13 goals for Die Leuchten last season in the Swiss Super League.
