Renat Dadasov, who has been waiting for his fourth goal of the season since mid-August, scored the golden goal in the 34th minute after a perfect cross from Tsiy Ndenge. It was significant for the performance of Alex Frei’s team that the best action of the whole, rarely quality game, was preceded by a wrong play by Basel’s Andy Pelmard.

Basel came to Zurich against the wind – thanks to a 2-0 win in Lucerne on Wednesday and also because it often goes well against GC. In the last six and a half years, there have been 13 wins and four draws. But FCB’s 16th appearance in the Super League under Frei has been forgotten. He did almost nothing for a long time. Bad passes repeatedly interrupted Basel’s efforts. Only when time was pressing did the chances come in spades, best in the last five minutes, such as a shot off the crossbar in the 87th minute.

GC wasn’t better, but happier. Centimeters decided Zurich’s goal. After repeated checks by VAR and referee Dudič, the verdict was in favor of GC. The Hoppers then threw their hearts and souls into the defense to secure just their second win in two months.
