A tough evening for the FCB – or the FCBs

It was a tough evening for the FCB – or the FCBs. FC Basel lost 1-0 in the Swiss Cup to Étoile Carouge, a club that plays two divisions lower than the Swiss Super League leader. (And yesterday and today, the Swiss Cup saw the top three clubs in the league knocked out, as FC Zürich and BSC Young Boys also lost.) Meanwhile, FC Bayern Munich lost 5-0 in the German Cup to Borussia Mönchengladbach, whose runaway upset win featured strong performances by two ex-Basel players, goalkeeper Yann Sommer and striker Breel Embolo, who scored two goals. And in Spain, FC Barcelona lost a 1-0 match in La Liga to Rayo Vallecano. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 27 October 2021)
