Basel to Win

FC Basel comes into the fixture on the back of a 3-0 win over Partizani in the Europa Conference League, while Grasshopper lost all four of their preseason engagements. Basel has not lost to the Stadtclub in competitive outings since May 2016, losing ten times and drawing twice. All hints point towards a likely away victory that should put FCB on track for a title assault from the get-go.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

In the preseason friendly, Basel shut them out but Grasshopper went out and impressed in the 2-3 defeat to Thun. Giorgio Contini's men have shown they can trouble their rivals and it will be put to the test on Sunday. Given the makeup of both sides and their respective philosophies, we should have a high scoring affair with the scoreline reading Over 2.5 goals at the end of regulation time.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

There is little that suggests Grasshopper will be able to take on the challenge of FC Basel in the opening fixture of the 2021/22 Swiss Super League. However, they should be able to give their rivals a run for their money at home after succumbing to a 1-0 defeat in a club-friendly at the start of July. FC Basel has played fixtures in succession and some fatigue would have crept in as they approach match fitness. Expect both sides to have plenty of chances in the final third and scorers in action across the divide.

Grasshopper vs Basel: Team News and Match Preview

Grasshopper

The Zurich based entity left their rivals behind them to return to the Swiss Super League. Their hard work paid off but the real challenge starts now. Giorgio Contini will have the chance to assess where his side lies at this junction of the season and what changes need to be made. The club's hierarchy would have shared their expectations, which would be to survive their ascent at the first time of asking. In Vasco Mendes Paciencia and Shkelqim Demhasaj, they have some fledgling gems that can prove to be the difference makers as the season progresses.

FC Basel

FCB came so close to becoming the Swiss champions for the 20th time. It would not come to be as Young Boys pipped them to the title. After keeping the bulk of their roster, Patrick Rahmen will have explicit orders to improve the performances in his interim role. In the form of Arthur Cabral, they have a forward to reliably provide the goals. They will need the rest of the attacking line-up to compliment him. However, it is in defence where FC Basel are the most vulnerable. Sergio Lopez and Andy Pelmard are 22 and 21, respectively, and have yet to accumulate experience that shows they can lead a title-winning backline.
