FC Zurich 1-2 FC Basel

Basel's Alex Frei ends his 647 minute goal drought

Basel claim three vital points on a snow covered pitch in Zurich

Since taking over a week ago for Heiko Vogel, former FC Basel and Swiss National Team player Murat Yakin was in dire need of a positive result. His first game in charge of the reigning champions ended in a 1-0 defeat to the side he coached to a second place position last season, a deserved result after a poor performance from Basel. His second game in charge took place at Videoton in the Europa League. This time around Basel were the better side but were unlucky to concede two goals early on and then even more unlucky to not be able to convert their multiple chances that followed into goals.
