the essentials in brief

  • FC Basel meets Marseille at home today (6.45 p.m.) in the second leg of the Conference League.
  • The game is open after the tight 1: 2 in France.
  • In the run-up to the closed guest sector there is something to talk about.

The Quarterfinals of the Conference League beckons! With a 1:2 mortgage, everything is still possible for FC Basel today (6.45 p.m.). Rotblau expects around 21,000 spectators for the hit against Olympique Marseille.

The guest sector, on the other hand, remains completely closed. On Friday, the Basel police decided to close the block “for security reasons”. Last week’s first leg in Marseille saw nasty hunting scenes around the Stade Vélodrome.

FCB stopped online sales on Tuesday and announced that tickets can no longer be bought on the day of the match. It turns out that many tickets are canceled by French fans. Finally, OM advises his fans not to travel to Switzerland.

Nevertheless: Around 4000 of the tickets sold go to France.

FCB announces that fans from Marseille want to be accommodated in sectors B3 to B5, which are actually neutral. Basel residents who have tickets there will be contacted directly and can be relocated.

The decision of the Basel police caused a shake of the head in fan circles. Wouldn’t it have been safer to place the Marseille supporters in the away sector?

An FCB supporter who was in Marseille reported on Twitter about the first leg: As soon as they left the train station, Bebbi was greeted by fireworks. The police used tear gas. When they were escorted to the stadium, hooded Marseille residents threw more fireworks at Basel from above.

Will FC Basel make it into the Conference League quarter-finals?

Today at the knee of the Rhine everything is at stake. It is unclear whether the Ultras will arrive from Marseille. It is to be hoped that images like last week in front of the Stade Vélodrôme will not be repeated.
