After three consecutive losses in the league, Basel got back to winning ways in emphatic fashion with a 4-0 away victory versus FC Zurich.

Fabian Frei was the star of the show after bagging a hat-trick with a trio of superb finishes.

The first, to open the scoring in the very first minute, saw him latch on to a loose ball inside the opposition box to curl a lovely left-footed strike into the bottom corner from around 14 yards.

He has Arthur Cabral to thank for the second, as it was a neat bit of footwork from the Brazilian which got the ball to him, while the resulting finish was lashed into the near post, this time with his right foot.

Just four minutes later, he would secure his hat-trick by opportunistically taking his shot quickly on the edge of the box to guide it into the corner, catching out the keeper in the process.
