Hamoudi features as Basel down Young Boys in Swiss Super League
The game started off quietly, with no bombardment from either side. As a result, 17-year-old Cameroonian midfielder Breel Embolo assisted midfielder Shkelzen Gashi to score the opening goal for Basel.
After half-time, Young Boy’s coach, Uli Forte, made tactical changes, and unleashed attacker Guillaume Hoarau as well as midfielder Milan Gajic for more threatening intervention on Basel’s goal area.
In the 69th minute, Basel’s coach, Paulo Sousa substituted Philip Degebout for Egyptian 24-year-old midfielder, Ahmed Hamoudi, for fresh legs on the pitch.
The only goal-scorer of the match, Shkelzen Gashi was then later substituted for 25-year-old Ivorian midfielder, Giovanni Sio, however, he was penalized with a yellow card within 10 minutes of playing.
It is important to note that 23-year-old midfielder, Mohamed El-Nenny did not feature as he is being rested after just returning yesterday to Basel after an impressive performance in the AFCON 2015 qualifiers game against Botswana.
BSC Young Boys dominated the game with 52% of total possession and 10 shots on goal, compared to FC Basel’s 5. However, Basel still remain on top of the league table with 25 points, followed closely by FC Zürich by 23 points.
Basel’s next Swiss League match will be on the 25th of October against Sion.
