Basel vs St Etienne Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the 1/16 finals in the UEFA Europa League, Basel host St Etienne. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Basel vs St Etienne.
St Etienne started very good in the first leg, but at the end they were happy because of minimal advantage. Their main goal is to stay unbeaten on this game and qualified in the next round, so I believe that they will start this game defensive and looking for their chance from the counter-attacks. Visitors are playing very good and they are in the great form. In the last 10 matches in all competitions they lost only once and it was a defeat against PSG, the best French football team. Saint-Etienne have very good attack and they are scored on every match in the recent period. In the last 13 matches in all competitions they failed to score in only one game and it was the same match in which they are beaten, against PSG 0-2.
