FC Basel lost 1–0 to GC – and continued to practice for four weeks.
(-tu). “We made a power play in the second half, ran, ran, ran,” said right-back Michael Lang after the final whistle. However, all of FC Basel’s efforts, reflected in a 21:1 corner kick ratio – once again – did not bear fruit. With a 0:1 (0:1) loss to the Grasshoppers in Zurich, the Swiss runners-up closed out the first half of the Super League (with 16 days of 36 matches), finishing in fifth place after consecutive ups and downs. Happened.
“What should I accuse the boys of?” Coach Alex Frey asked rhetorically. In front of 7,200 football fans at Letzigrund, the guests were unable to respond to Renat Dadashov’s goal in the 34th minute, even though he continued to extend his effort – to a header from Noah Caterbach on the crossbar (87th). After 17 unsuccessful attempts (13 bankruptcies, four draws), GC beat Bebby again for the first time. FCB is now practicing for four weeks without previously nominated World Cup drivers Fabian Frey (Switzerland) and Liam Miller (Canada). Coach Frey wants to work on “two or three systems” – tests in Basel against Second Division team Sandhausen (20 November) and Third Division team Waldhof Mannheim (10 December) and Challenge League team Lausanne-Sport (3 December). In too.
