El-Nenny and Hamoudi see yellow in Thun draw
The game started off quite plainly, with no offense or goals from either side. Due to the frustration, 22-year-old Mohamed El-Nenny received a yellow card, just 2 minutes after half-time. However, defender Taulant Xhaka was able to change the scoreline for Basel, as he hit a powerful shot just outside the 18-yard box, giving no chance to the goalkeeper and putting the Swiss Champions up.
Basel Midfielder Shkelzen Gashi was then substituted for 24-year-old Egyptian midfielder Ahmed Hamoudi, who previously netted Basel’s third goal against Vaduz on his impressive league debut. Unluckily, he received a yellow card just 2 minutes after stepping on the pitch, which meant that both Egyptians on the team saw yellow.
Thanks to an added time of 3 minutes, Thun’s attacker Berat Sadik was able to score an equalizer as he aimed the ball towards the center of the box, as it missed the goalkeeper’s gloves and traveled passed the line.
Overall, Basel dominated 61% of possession and had 8 shots on goal compared to Thun’s 5. They still continue to sit on top of the league table, with 22 points, closely followed by FC Zurich with 20 points. Basel’s next Super League match will be against St. Gallen on the 4th of October.
