FC Basel will take a 1-0 lead over Bayern Munich into the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie after a late goal from substitute Valentin Stocker gave them victory Wednesday. Stocker struck in the 86th minute to stun the Bavarian giants,Air Max 2012, giving the Swiss side a precious advantage ahead of the return in Germany. Marseille also scored late,Air Max 2011, an injury time winner from Ghana's Andre Ayew, as they beat 2010 champions Inter Milan in their first leg match in France. Bayern will still be hoping to make the final of Europe's top club competition,Nike Air Max, which is at their home Allianz Stadium on May 19. But with only three wins in seven games since Christmas, their poor run of form has continued and they have gone 240 minutes without a goal. They might have been on the score sheet early at the St. Jakob Stadium,Air Max 90, but home goalkeeper Yann Sommer twice denied Franck Ribery in a frantic opening. But Basel, who had accounted for English powerhouses Manchester United in the group stages, also went close to a breakthrough. Blog: Should Man City accept Tevez apology? Defender Aleksandar Dragovic forced goalkeeper Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer into a reflex save and Alexander Frei rattled the crossbar from close range. Sommer continued his excellent night as he kept out a curling shot from David Alaba on the half hour mark.
