Males with a dream goal
Virtually out of nowhere, the FCB suddenly cheered on the other side. New signing – Males came on the edge of the penalty area to the ball, let Lauper get out with a hook and pulled away. Von Ballmoos had no chance.
But the master from Bern stayed cool. Hefti launched Elia, who put the pick down. And Lauper, who ran from the back area, spitted the ball over FCB goalie Lindner to equalize. It was the fourth goal in the ninth Super League game for the YB midfielder after his comeback.
Even if YB was the dominant team in St. Jakob-Park, the FC Basel players fought. Above all Timm Klose, who was not undisputed in the end, who headed off one Bernese flank after the other in defense.
The team from Ciriaco Sforza was offensive but once again without a concept. Chances played out? Nothing. The table leaders from Bern are completely different. Top scorer Nsame just missed the lead twice after one hour.
Carbal verpasst Lucky Punch
And yet, YB was almost behind again. Cabral appeared free from Ballmoos. But instead of lying across the freestanding Kasami, the Brazilian tried it himself from an acute angle – to no avail.
Because there were no more goals in the hot final phase, it stayed 1: 1 until the end. By dividing the points, YB is one step further towards defending its title, Basel is one point richer in the battle for second place and high-risk weather is ten francs poorer.
