Tip Reasoning

  • Basel’s home games in Europe this season, including qualifiers, have averaged 3.4 goals.
  • Each of Qarabag’s last four games have featured over 2.5 goals.
  • The visitors have scored six goals in two away matches.

Top spot is Basel’s for now

2nd in Switzerland as things stand, but Basel are currently set to advance to the knockout rounds on the inaugural Europa Conference League with more goals scored, that’s how evenly matched these two are.

They felt each other out on matchday one and ended up drawing in a 0-0 stalemate but since then the two teams have recorded three wins and a draw to end up on 11 points each heading into the final matchday. Basel helped their goal tally last time out with a 3-2 win in Kazakhstan against Kairat and have won both home group games so far in what has been a comfortable campaign for the seasoned Swiss side.

Can the visitors get what they need?

Azerbaijan’s top side Qarabag are hoping to cause an upset here as they come into this one as outsiders but they have nothing to lose and will make it to at least the preliminary knockout rounds even if beaten so they could well go for this one. Perhaps they will look to sit in and attack the game late on but neither team has a sturdy enough defence to just play with a low block. Basel have conceded 1.2 goals per game on average while Basel are conceding a goal a game and both have conceded on average, two or more per group game. Hence our over 2.5 goals prediction.

Qarabag have won both away group matches scoring four in Cyprus against Omonia where Basel only managed a 1-1 draw so the result is up in the air. In my eyes, they are evenly matched and that is expressed in the table as things stand and I think it’s hard to call a winner. I’m predicting a 2-2 draw given the numbers these teams have produced so far in the group.
