El-Nenny’s Basel thrash Ludogorets to climb into second in Group B
Egypt international Mohamed El-Nenny started in Basel’s fourth consecutive Champions League group stage fixture, while compatriot Ahmed Hamoudi witnessed the match from the bench.
Cameroonian Breel Embolo opened the scoring for the home team in 34th minute. Aged only 17 years and 263 days old, Embolo became the sixth youngest goalscorer in UCL history.
Just seven minutes later, the visitors seemed to have given up already as they conceded the second goal, scored by Gonzalez who was booked a minute later.
After the halftime break, it only took Gashi 14 minutes to score and make it 3-0 for FC Basel. Similarly to the first half, Basel grabbed the fourth and final goal six minutes later to seal their big win, with Suchy getting on the scoresheet.
El-Nenny showed some great attacking and defending play through the match, and he had a close range shot in the 26th minute that unfortunately flew past post without troubling Ludogorets goalkeeper Stoyanov.
FC Basel move up into second place in Group B with 6 points from 4 matches, behind Real Madrid; the Spanish giants have all but secured qualification to the knockout rounds after their 1-0 win against Liverpool tonight.
