The first leg of the Europa saw the side take home a comfortable 3-0 lead. The side will set their eyes of the last eight of the competition. This will be their first time at this level of the competition since their 2013-14 campaign.

Basel has had a wonderful finish to their Swish Super League campaign managing to go on a six unbeaten streak. The 20-time national champions took second runners up in their league falling behind title leaders Young Boys.
