FC St. Gallen defeat FC Basel

This was not how Switzerland’s finest football team wanted to start the new season. 

Over 25 thousand fans packed St. Jakob Park in hopes of their team winning the match.

St. Gallen’s Cedric Ittens silenced the crowd at the 56 minute mark by scoring an unassisted goal for his team.

FC Basel received a break ten minutes later when St. Gallen’s Jordi Quintilla inadvertently shot the ball in his own goal.

The match remained tied at 1 goal apiece until the 94th minute.  That was when Marco Aratore scored the second goal for St. Gallen and won the match for his team.
