Basel vs PSG Predictions

Basel’s hope of qualifying from their Champions League group are looking pretty grim at the moment. They sit rock bottom of the table after defeats to Arsenal and PSG, with a draw against Ludogorets giving them their only point so far. 3rd place is pretty much the best they can hope for now.

Domestically it’s a completely different story though. They are once again dominating the Swiss Super League, with them opening up a 12 point gap over 2nd placed Sion after just 12 matches. They are unbeaten domestically and have only failed to win twice so far this season, and at home they are unbeaten in all competitions. However, their only Champions League match at home was their draw with Ludogorets, so I wouldn’t read too much into that.

Their domestic form is largely thanks to their excellent attacking partnership of Matias Delgado and Seydou Doumbia. The two have seven league goals apiece this season, whilst veteran Austrian Marc Janko has four as well. They will be facing a much different test against the PSG defence though.

PSG have had a very dodgy start to the season, with their perfect start halted early on by Monaco and back to back draws following that defeat. They briefly returned to form before being beaten by Toulouse, although since then they have returned to something resembling their form last season.

Their tight 1-0 win at Lille on Friday made it five wins and one draw from their last six games in all competitions, including their 3-0 win over Basel. They have kept a clean sheet in four of these matches as well, so Basel might not get many opportunities in front of goal on Tuesday.

Predictably, now that Edinson Cavani is playing through the middle he has rediscovered his scoring boots. The Uruguayan striker has been overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in recent seasons, but now he has netted ten Ligue 1 goals and another four in the Champions League. This includes one on Friday night and one against Basel a couple of weeks ago, so he is a definite favourite for the anytime goalscorer market. at odds of 4/5 with bet365.

Considering their recent defensive displays and the fact they kept a clean sheet against Basel a few weeks ago I think backing PSG to Win to Nil at 7/4 is a good option here. I’m going for a 2-0 correct score prediction at 7/1 as well.
