Basel vs Trabzonspor Match Preview
Basel host Trabzonspor on the final day of the Europa League group stage as Group C pace-setters with the top 2 spot in the bag, hoping to keep hold of the top with home points on Thursday. They’ve been in fine form lately and come into the match as heavy favourites to win, with a couple of great performances behind them.
Bebbi beat Young Boys (3-0) and Sion (4-0) over the past two weeks, extending a ten-match unbeaten streak where they bagged nine wins and only saw Neuchatel Xamax (1-1) interrupt it with a point snatched at St Jakob-Park. Marcelo Koller will now want to build on such consistency and we expect his men just as motivated now.
Trabzonspor held off the Swiss rivals in a thriller 2-2 draw in front of the home fans back in October but this was also their only point earned in Group C, as they sit rock-bottomed and certainly saw their struggles to retain goalscoring stability costly. They have picked it up lately and sit 3rd placed in Super Lig but struggles to make an impact in Europa League will be more worrying.
Black Sea Storm have beaten Altay (1-2) and Antalyaspor (1-3) last week, bagging five goals and surely hoping to build on such performances now. However, Basel will be much more of a challenge we feel and we don’t really see them causing an upset now despite a seemingly reinvigorated form.
We will thus back Basel to secure all three points and we’ll go for them to build on confident displays of recent, sticking with a Home win to Nil at Evens with BetVictor which feels like the best approach to the fixture at this point.
With that in mind, we feel that Trabzonspor will be no sitting ducks despite no high stakes involved. We thus hope to see few goals between the sides this time around and we’re backing Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 31/20 with Paddy Power and has caught the eye of value seekers already.
