FINAL GAME IN BASEL

The last CSSL championship round of the 2022/23 season is coming up. The Hoppers will meet FC Basel 1893 away from home.

In stoppage time GC had to concede the equaliser last Thursday and thus lost two important points in the race for Europe in a bitter way. The Zurich team's position in the standings has not changed, they are still in sixth place, but they have the same points as the FCB, ahead of the Hoppers. So the starting position for the last round is clear. If the Hoppers want to secure the fifth and last European place, they need a win in Basel. Four teams still have a chance to win, besides GC and FCB, FC Zurich and FC St.Gallen 1879 are still in the race. However, both are depending on a draw in the match between Basel and GC Zurich.

Basel experienced a rollercoaster of emotions in the last round. Twice the Baslers went behind, once in the lead, finally Zeki Amdouni secured an important point with his equaliser in the 88th minute. So the starting position for Basel is similar to this one for Zurich, with a win they could secure fifth place. The first duel of the season in Basel went clearly to FCB with 5:1.

In the last championship game, head coach Giorgio Contini will have to do without the long-term injured Francis Momoh and Filipe de Carvalho. Besides Giotto Morandi, who is slightly injured, Amir Abrashi and Bendegúz Bolla will miss the match due to a yellow suspension. Petar Pusic will return from his yellow suspension.

The match can be followed as usual on 86live via live ticker and radio. In addition, the match can be seen on pay TV on blue Sport.
