FC Basel vs Grasshopper
Switzerland – Super League
Date: Thursday, 12 May 2022
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park.

Bassel have been the best team in the competition this season, after of course champions Zuerich. They are placed second in the table as of now, and are determined to finish in either the second or the third position, as it will secure them a ticket to the Europa Conference League.

They have a surplus of seven points over the Conference League cut-off as of now, and with just three fixtures remaining in the league, they need just one more win to mathematically confirm their qualification.

And since they are at home this Thursday, and are taking on one of the relegation battlers – the Grasshoppers, count on the team to post a win in front of their home crowd at any cost.
