Basel and Sion will battle for three points in a Swiss Super League matchday 20 fixture on Saturday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a 3-0 away victory over Luzern last weekend. All three goals came in the second half, with Fabian Frei starting and ending the scoring for the visitors.

Sion also secured maximum points with a 2-0 home win over Grasshoppers last time around. Jan Bamert's first-half strike was added to by Noah Loosli's second half own goal.

The victory saw them climb above Grasshoppers into sixth spot, having garnered 24 points from 19 matches. Basel still sit in second spot on 36 points, seven points behind table-toppers FC Zurich.
