In fact, while they had slotted in a total of 64 goals, the next best record was 47 goals. Do also note that none of the other teams had even scored more than 30 goals.
Once again they have raced to a great start this season as well. As of now, they have an unbeaten record, and have scored the most number of goals in the competition as well.
In the meantime, Basel were the runners-up of the Swiss Super League in 2020-21, and they had scored 60 goals from their 36 games.
And at present, they are the only unbeaten team in the whole league this new season, and have scored the most number of goals too – 17 goals from just six fixtures.
By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring affair this Thursday.
