Basel clinch away draw

MŠK Zilina 1-1 FC Basel Basel are favourites to meet Celtic FC in the next round.

MŠK Zilina 1-1 FC Basel
Swiss side FC Basel are favourites to reach the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, and a meeting with Celtic FC after holding MŠK Zilina to a draw at the Pod Dumnom stadium in Slovakia.

No disgrace
The result was no disgrace for the Slovakian hosts, who made their first appearance in the competition and went ahead on 30 minutes when forward Miroslav Barcik netted a fine strike.

Harmless ball
But the lead was shortlived as defender Marian Klago diverted a harmless ball from Julio Rossi into his own net ten minutes later. It was a costly mistake, especially as he was under no pressure at the time.

No firepower
The travelling fans then expected Basel to go on and win convincingly but, playing without injured striker Murat Yakin, they lacked firepower. Zilina piled on the pressure in the second half but a string of inspired saves from goalkeeper Pascal Zubebühler ensured the score remained level.

No luck
"We had no luck today," Zilina coach Leos Kalvoda said. "But I'm nevertheless satisfied with the performance. The players have nothing to be ashamed about. A good start was overshadowed by an own goal but mistakes are part of the game. The Swiss team were only looking for a draw, and there can be no doubt that that is an advanatage for them."

Undecided
Basel boss Christian Gross added: "The result is very good, though the tie is far from decided. Zilina had a better, more attacking midfield and were dangerous down the flanks but we scored and held out for the draw."
