The Super League is coming back and won’t stop until the winter break!

Before we start again, however, we want to propose you – team by team – several individual statistics. Let’s talk today about…


Basel are currently second placed and are trying – slowly – to get back to the top of Swiss football.

Today, however, we want to focus only on individual statistics. More precisely, we want to rank the top 5 players for the following categories:

Minutes Played

Goals Scored

Conversion Rate

Ratio Minutes / Goals


Ratio Minutes / Shots

Let’s get started!


Fabian Frei is the only player who played every single minute this season!

Silvan Widmer, Albian Ajeti, Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Luca Zuffi then, played more than 1’000 minutes and make it to the top 5 of the most used players by Marcel Koller (and Raphaël Wicky).


Albian Ajeti is Basel’s top scorer with 6 goals. Ricky van Wolfswinkel follows with 5 goals.

We mean, the Rotblau darn lack a pure scorer. The other players who make it to the top 5 are Luca Zuffi (4), Kevin Bua (3) and Fabian Frei (2).


Luca Zuffi is the player with the highest conversion rate!

Samuel Campo follows second placed. The latter, however, got injured back in mid-September after that he had collected 2 appearances. Therefore, his figure is to be taken with a grain of salt. Same goes for Noah Okafor, considering that the midfielder played only 312 minutes during which he shot 6 times and scored 1 goal.

Eder Balanta and Kevin Bua complete the top 5. And then once again, Basel darn miss an accurate striker.


Samuel Campo scored 1 goal during his 154 minutes of play. Therefore, also in this case, his data is to be taken with a grain of salt.

It’s interesting, however, to note that there are no players even close to an average of 1 goal per game. The one who scores the most per minutes of play is Albian Ajeti. The latter though, scores “only” 1 goal every 198 minutes.

Ricky van Wolfswinkel scores even less… while Kevin Bua and Luca Zuffi complete the top 5.


Albian Ajeti is the player who shot the most followed by Ricky van Wolfswinkel. In fact, the two strikers have the highest figures by far.

Fabian Frei, Luca Zuffi and Kevin Bua follow and complete the top 5.


Afimico Pululu is some sort of shooting machine… but he’s almost never a starter. In fact, he collected 8 appearances including 6 during which he came in as a sub. Yet, whenever he’s lined up he surely likes to shoot. That’s a sign of personality.

Also Albian Ajeti, Samuele Campo, Dimitri Oberlin (even though he played only 219 minutes) and Ricky van Wolfswinkel are regular shooters.

Well, that’s it for today.

Basel’s next game is scheduled for Sunday afternoon when they will travel to Luzern to face René Weiler’s troops at the Swissporarena. Good luck!
