The UEFA Champions League Round of Sixteen clash featuring record German champion as well as four-time European king BAYERN MUNICH and formidable host FC BASEL will provide Bavarian supporters with the unique opportunity of seeing one new player already signed for next season taking the field tomorrow in Switzerland against his future employers in an extremely meaningful match at Sankt Jakob Park.

Bayern Munich, of course, just recently bought the youthful Switzerland international midfielder XHERDAN SHAQIRI from two-time defending Swiss Super League titlist FC Basel for the reported transfer fee of 10.0 million Euros. The tricky 20-year-old, left-footed midfielder is one of only two players to have appeared in every domestic match so far this season for FC Basel, who currently top the league table this term yet again. Shaqiri, who has netted four goals in 20 Swiss Super League games for die RotBlau along the way, was also extremely influential in FC Basel’s big win over Manchester United in Europe earlier this past December.

Shaqiri, to review, dished out both assists as FC Basel secured a famous 2-1 victory at Sankt Jakob Park while disappointing Manchester United failed to reach the knockout round of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since the 2005/06 season.

FC Basel midfielder XHERDAN SHAQIRI, who made one substitute appearance against Honduras at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, scored all the goals when Switzerland rallied after going down early to defeat Bulgaria 3-1 in the 2012 European Championships qualification match earlier this past September at Sankt Jakob Park in Basel; altogether, Shaqiri has totaled four goals from 17 apperances with the senior national team thus far.
