FC Basel defeat AS Roma in Italy-Ghana’s Inkoom stars in historic victory.

Aging AS Roma captain Francesco Totti extended his scoreless streak as Basel beat the Italian side 3-1 Tuesday to revive its hopes of advancing from the Champions League group stage.

Alexander Frei put the Swiss champion ahead in the 12th minute at the Stadio Olimpico, and though Marco Borriello equalized for Roma in the 21st, Basel right back Samuel Inkoom of Ghana restored the visitor’s lead with his first goal in Europe in the 44th.

Basel midfielder Cabral dribbled through Roma’s defense to seal the win in injury time.

The 34-year-old Totti had several opportunities but couldn’t find the net, going scoreless for the 11th consecutive match since the start of the season.
