Tip Reasoning

  • Basel have scored in 16 successive competitive games (W7, D6, L3).
  • The visitors have scored in 14 straight away games.
  • A goal either way would force the other side to come out and be more adventurous, leading to possible counterattack opportunities.

Basel comfortable at home

Despite losing 2-1 in the first leg against French outfit Marseille, hosts Basel will be confident that they can overturn the deficit. They come into this one after claiming victory against Servette in the Swiss Super League and it was a result that meant that ‘Bebbi’ have now scored in 16 competitive matches on the spin. Another good omen is the hosts’ remarkable home record in European competitions; Basel have won 12 of their last 13 such matches at St. Jakob-Park – tasting defeat just once.

Marseille have also had a good time of it of late, following up their victory in the first leg with a 4-1 demolition of Brest in Ligue 1. That scoreline means Jorge Sampaoli’s side have now won eight of their last 11 road games. If Basel score at home once again in this one, the visitors themselves will be confident of hitting back given that they have hit the back of the net in 14 successive away games.

Goals in store in Switzerland

These two sides have made a good habit of finding a way to get on the scoresheet and we think both will fight it out to try and ensure qualification to the next round. Expect Basel to go for it in front of the home crowd and this could allow Marseille to utilise their ability to control the game and pick their moments to hit on the break.
