Europa League: Basel vs. Salzburg Betting Preview

In the first match of 1/8 finals in Europa League Basel will host Salzburg.


Salzburg have 25 points more than 2nd Grodig and they are practically secured the title in Austrian Bundesliga, so they will focus on Europa League and try to reach 1/4 finals. Their recent form is amazing. On their last 9 matches in all competitions they have all wins and on every match they have scored at least 3 goals. In the 1/16 finals they’ve beat Ajax twice (1-3, 3-0).

Vorsah (0/0 d) is out, while the second top scorer Alan (21/21 f) is doubtful.

On the other side, Basel is standing at the top of table in Swiss Super League with 5 points more than Zurich, Grasshoppers and Young Boys. They are playing good, but their recent form is not the best. On their last 5 matches in all competitions they have managed to win only once (1-4-0).

For today’s match they will be without few very important players. 4 defenders: Voser (23/1 d), Xhaka (19/2 d), Safari (14/0 d) and Ivanov (11/0 d), midfielder Diaz (12/2 m) and top scorer Streller (19/10 f) are all out, while Serey Die (11/0 m) is doubtful.

Salzburg is in an amazing form and believe they could make a positive result tonight.
