He made his first team league debut as a substitute, playing 31 minutes, on 1 June 2013 in the 1–0 home win in St. Jakob-Park against St. Gallen. At the end of the Swiss Super League season 2012–13, Adili won the Championship title and was Swiss Cup runner up with Basel. In the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League Basel advanced as far as the semi-finals, there being matched against the reigning UEFA Champions League holders Chelsea, but were knocked out being beaten 2-5 on aggregate.
