FC Basel 1893 overcame the 58th-minute dismissal of Cabral to move into second place in UEFA Europa League Group G thanks to some stylish finishing against Sporting Clube de Portugal.

Fabian Schär opened the scoring midway through the first half to end a Basel goal drought in matches against the Lisbon outfit at seven minutes short of eight hours. They built on that platform with tenacity and some high-class finishing after the break, Valentin Stocker and David Degen enabling the Swiss side to leapfrog Videoton FC into second place in the section.
