Interesting fact in tonight’s Uefa Champions League is that two brothers playing against each other. It is not that much surprising when two brothers play for against each other but it’s interesting to know the fact that they also played against each other in EURO 2016 that was held in France. We are talking about Xhaka brothers, Granit Xhaka and Taulant Xhaka. Beside that Granit Xhaka is palaying for Switzerland he also plays for Arsenal, which is facing tonight with Basel where the older brother Taulant Xhaka is playing.
In EURO2016 Switzerland won against Albania with minimal result 1-0. Tonight is the second “battle” between two brother’s.
In the history of football the only similar case is with Boateng brothers. Jerome that is playing for Bayern Munchen and for Germany and Kevin-Prince Boateng that used to play for AC Milan, Schalke 04 and Ghana.
