Basel Prediction – Can Basel make quality count?

The Swiss hosts will head into this crucial 1st leg of their 3rd qualifying round tie in the Champions League with LASK, looking to register a third win on the trot.

Basel have started their season with 3 wins from their first 5 matches of their campaign which includes a Champions League win against PSV.

2 wins out of 3 in the Swiss Super League include victories against Sion 4-1 away and a 3-2 win away at FC Thun.

Although they lost 2-1 at home to St Gallen in the league as well as a 3-2 loss away at PSV, Basel bounced back in their home leg.

A 2-1 home win at St. Jakob-Park in the 2nd leg against Dutch outfit PSV proved to be enough to see them through to this 3rd qualifying round.

The 3-2 loss in the 1st leg saw Basel score 2 pivotal away goals which saw the Swiss side through on the away-goal rule.

With just 2 defeats out of their last 19 matches on home turf in all competitions, Basel look well set to get a result in this 1st leg.

LASK Prediction – Can LASK continue domestic form?

Following last season’s successful campaign in the Austrian Bundesliga, LASK embark upon their first venture in the Champions League.

A runners-up position in the domestic top flight behind title winners, Salzburg, was enough for LASK to qualify for these Champions League qualifiers.

The Austrian visitors bring a 6-match unbeaten sequence into this 1st leg which includes recent back-to-back Bundesliga wins.

Victories against Rheindorf Altach and Austria Vienna have seen LASK make an excellent start to the new domestic season.

The visitors will now be looking to transfer their domestic form into the Champions League, but they’ll face a tough test in the shape of Basel in this tie.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 16 away matches in all competitions, LASK will be pretty confident of getting a result in Switzerland tonight.

However, this will be LASK’s first ever tie in the Champions League, let alone away tie, so they’re likely to have their work cut out here.


Key-Facts – Basel v LASK

  • Basel have lost just 2 of their last 19 matches at home in all competitions
  • LASK have lost just 1 of their last 16 away matches in all competitions
  • This will be LASK’s first appearance in the Champions League


Betting Tips Verdict

Basel possess a wealth of experience in the Champions League and they should get a lead in this 1st leg against LASK.
