GC in luck: FC Basel quarrels with the referee after 1-1

Has the VAR gone to bed yet? It is shortly after 10 p.m., in the game between FCB and GC, overtime, when Basel’s Raoul Petretta falls in the away penalty area. Referee Stefan Horisberger lets play continue, but the TV pictures show: GC-Bolla doesn’t hit the ball in the 95th minute, only Petretta’s foot. Alessandro Dudic should actually intervene from Volketswil, from where the video referees follow the games. But the line to Basel remains silent – ​​instead of a penalty for Basel, the final whistle sounds a few seconds later.

Final score 1:1. Even if they lead for a long time and only get into trouble against uninspired Basler after what was probably the fastest sending off of the season for substitute Christian Herc (two yellow cards within 144 seconds): The Hoppers should be happier with the point than their opponents. GC is only one point ahead of the Barrage-Platz, but thanks to the clearly better goal difference than their competitors Sion and Lucerne, they are practically two points ahead. It is quite possible that this away point in Basel will be decisive for GC in the final settlement.
