When running a ng test with Angular v6.2.9 cli, I was getting the error:

Error: No base href set. Please provide a value for the APP_BASE_HREF token or add a base element to the document.

This was fixed by adding the RouterTestingModule tot the TestBed TestingModule:

import { TestBed, async } from '@angular/core/testing';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';
import { RouterTestingModule } from '@angular/router/testing';

describe('AppComponent', () => {
    beforeEach(async(() => {
        declarations: [],
        imports: [

it('should create the app', () => {
    const fixture = TestBed.createComponent(AppComponent);
    const app = fixture.debugElement.componentInstance;

  1. Solution is try to include tag inside your index.html page or master layout page.
