And The Next Opponent Is…

FC Basel!

There’ll be more about the opponent later, for now let me quote myself:

Oh, the surprise. Beating Galati at home? Even my grandma would’ve done that. A point in Manchester? Respect but now you lost your coach Thorsten Fink, a big loss as the disappointing result against Benfica confirms. That was about 6 weeks ago. Now they’re the heroes of Europe, led by Heiko Vogel. The Swiss FCB, on the way to an easy domestic title, eliminated one of the giants with dinosaurs such as Alexander Frei, Benjamin Huggel and Marco Streller. Turns out that old players aren’t that bad if you give them the neverending support of young guns such as Xherdan Shaqiri, Aleksandar Dragovic and Granit Xhaka. Still, the doubts remain. Are they just this year’s FC København? It’s impossible to say for sure but Basel seems to be the favorite possible opponent of many Bayern fans, even if it’s just for a comfortable travel route.
