Football: Basler makes up with supporters
Monday 02 October 1995
Basler, who had to issue a written leaflet to Werder fans to apologise for an offensive gesture he had made at them, levelled the score at 1- 1 with a 25-yard free-kick in the 38th minute which would have also impressed the national coach, Berti Vogts, who was at the match.
In the Spanish League, Barcelona had full-back Sergi Barjuan sent off in the first half but still came from behind to hold Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu stadium, leaving the home side, the reigning champions, in the bottom half of the table with just five points from five matches.
Real have made one of their worst starts to the season in living memory, having beaten only Rayo Vallecano and having lost in the Bernabeu stadium to Athletic Bilbao and Oviedo.
A splendid goal by Sylvain Kastendeuch helped put Metz on top of the French League on Saturday after a 3-1 win over Auxerre. Metz, with 25 points, are the only unbeaten team left in the league.
Cannes, one place off the bottom after eight defeats in 11 matches, yesterday sacked their coach, Safet Susic. He has been replaced by the former Cannes player William Ayache, ironically thrown out of the team last year by Susic after a bitter row.
