Super League: FC Basel loses against GC 0:1

Game scene

After just over 30 minutes, Dadasov scored to make it 1-0 for Grasshoppers. Basel made a big mistake in building the game. After a nice combination, the GC attacker only had to push the ball. VAR clarified the possible offside with the referee – but everything was correct. It was the scene of the game because the game was absolutely unspectacular.

Key character

It wasn’t even on the field. The key figure of the evening was certainly the FCB striker. The Hungarian was shut down by the club bosses in mid-October and sentenced to individual training. The reason was not entirely clear. On the one hand, coach Alex Frei no longer planned with him and he allegedly behaved more and more negatively. He also called in sick before the cup match against Aarau, but a few days later he delighted Hungary with a magical goal against Germany.

However, Szalai didn’t let himself be ignored and defended himself against the individual training with a lawyer – with success! Shortly before the GC match, he wrote on Insta that he was successful and will return to training for the first team at FC Basel from November 14.

A better team

Hard to say. GC won the match and Zurich defended bravely and very closely until the end. FC Basel pushed for an equaliser, but the Rotblau presented themselves bereft of ideas and at times clueless on Saturday night. The Basel stars came dangerously rarely into the penalty area, a shot on the crossbar just before the end just wasn’t enough.

The chirping of the stands

FCB fans took to Twitter to express their anger. “You have to be honest: This is the worst FCB in 20 years,” wrote one user. Someone else: “If I were the GC, I’d clear the corner as well. Nothing can really happen to them…» Background to this statement: The ratio of corner kicks ended up being 21:1 for Basel. There was a goal threat from only one corner.


34.’ I 1:0 I Renat Dadashov: Basel made a big mistake in building the game, Grasshoppers benefited from this mistake – and how! After a nice combination, the ball comes to Dadašov, who just had to shoot the ball into the corner.


Basel will be extremely happy that there is now a break from the World Cup. The game against GC was the 30th competitive game of the season. Basel will now lick their wounds and do everything to present themselves better in the second half of the season. GC, on the other hand, goes into the break with a sense of accomplishment.
