FC Basel 1893 have one foot in the UEFA Champions League group stage after a 4-2 win at PFC Ludogorets Razgrad in the first leg of their play-off tie.
Though Basel went in from through Mohamed Salah, they were 2-1 down five minutes into the second half following goals from Marcelinho and Ivan Stoyanov. Murat Yakin's side's class ultimately told, though, as Salah added a second before further efforts from Giovanni Sio and Fabian Schär, the latter from the penalty spot after Júnior Caiçara was sent off for Ludogorets.
