the essentials in brief
- FC Basel now knows their opponent in the round of 16 of the Europa Conference League.
- The next round of the European Cup was drawn on Friday.
- FCB is up against Olympique Marseille.
How far will FC Basel get in the Europa Conference League? The Bebbi have known their next opponent in the new European Cup competition since Friday: the top French club Olympique Marseille is waiting in the round of 16.
Can FCB make it to the quarter-finals of the Europa Conference League?
As the winners of Group H, Red-Blue were seeded for the round of 16 draw as one of eight teams. It was therefore clear from the outset that the Bebbi would play the second leg on March 17th at home. The first leg takes place in Marseille a week before.
The French top club Olympique Marseille is probably the most attractive, but also the most difficult draw. Other possible opponents would have included PSV Eindhoven, PAOK or Partizan Belgrade.
