The visitors enjoyed plenty of possession but they could not find a way past Basel goalkeeper Djordje Nikolic.

Basel midfielder Valentin Stocker went close with a fine run and chip over the advancing keeper but Kostic cleared off the line. 

Fabian Frei finally broke the deadlock in the 88th minute.
