FC Basel’s featured in the season opener against FC Sion, as they cruised to a comfortable win against FC Sion.

It was a slow start for the game, in St. Jakob Park, where Omar Gaber first had his medical after signing with the Swiss giants back in May.

Sion’s Papa Moussa Konate received a yellow card and conceded a penalty in the 37th minute; attacking midfielder Matias Delgado converted the spot kick to give Basel the lead.

Just seven minutes after the penalty, Ivorian international Seydou Doumbia scored his debut goal, a powerful header assisted by Calla.

This put Basel in a strong position ahead of their second half, as the hosts’ tempo picked up, and they created several chances.

33-year-old Matias Emilio Delgado scored once again – from 16 metres out – giving goalkeeper Mitryushkin no chance.

Reto Ziegler and Leo Lacroix were booked in the final 10 minutes of the game,  as the visitors showed their frustration.
