Basel host Sion in Swiss Super League opener
Gaber joined the Swiss side from Cairo giants Zamalek on a four-year deal in May to become the fourth Egyptian to join the team in the last four years after Ahmed Hamoudi, Mohamed Elneny and Mohamed Salah.
The opening weekend sees reigning champions FC Basel host FC Sion, who finished fifth last season, at St. Jakob-Park on July 24.
The RotBlau will host runners-up BSC Young Boys and their long-standing rivals Grasshopper Club Zürich on the fourth and the seventh round, respectively.
It’s worth noting that Gaber’s side are the defending champions after winning the league last season for the seventh time in a row.
