KRC Genk are a point clear atop UEFA Europa League Group G despite surrendering a two-goal advantage at FC Basel 1893.

The Belgian club had already claimed one Swiss scalp this season, defeating FC Luzern 3-2 on aggregate in the play-offs, and they looked good value to add a second after Benjamin De Ceulaer's tenth-minute opener. Jelle Vossen doubled their lead before the break, but Marco Streller struck twice in the closing 20 minutes to make it two draws from two for the hosts.
