FC Porto vs Basel Betting Tip and Prediction. In the second leg in the 1/8 finals of UEFA Champions League FC Porto host Basel.
FC Porto made a positive result in the first match which leads them in the 1/4 finals in this competition, but they have another good result tonight. The result without conceded goal would be perfect for them, but I don’t believe that they will play defensive.
In the first match, Porto controlled the game, they were better team, but they failed to win.
Porto is in amazing form, they are playing very good, especially at home where they won the last seven matches in all competitions and in only match they failed to score more than one goal.

The big blow for home side is the absence one of their best players and top scorer Jackson Martínez (24/17 f). Adrián López (8/0 f) is also out. But, without these two players Porto is still favorite to go through.
Basel tried to do their best and I’ll free to say that they made positive result in the first leg. If they want to go through in the next phase of Champions League they have to score tonight at least one goal. They don’t have time to wait and nothing to lose, so I expect their open game which will leave many open space for Porto attackers.
The visitors will be without Ivanov (0/0 d), Suchý (20/0 d) and Delgado (16/3 m).
FC Porto vs Basel probably lineups:
FC Porto: Fabiano; Alex Sandro, Maicon, Marcano, Danilo; Casemiro, Herrera, Evandro; Brahimi, Tello, Aboubakar.
Basel: Vaclík; Xhaka, Schärm, Samuel, Safari; Frei, Elneny; González, Zuffi, Gashi; Streller.
Porto is a big favorite to qualify in the quarter-finals, but I expect an open match between FC Porto vs Basel and goals, at least three, and that’s my betting prediction for this game.
