Basel overcame Dutch team Vitesse in the last round by winning each game very efficiently 1-0 for a 2-0 win aggregate.

Apollon Limassol have come a long way but this game should be quite daunting and a real test for them. They beat Dynamo Brest 4-1 on aggregate in the last round and have been on form up front.

The Cypriots will be hoping to continue that as they try to keep the score low and get an away goal which could be vital in a week’s time.

FC Basel vs Apollon Limassol: Head to Head

There are no previous head to head matches between the two sides.

FC Basel vs Apollon Limassol: Prediction

The truth is Apollon do not travel very well, even when they beat Dynamo Brest 4-1 in the last round they lost 1-0 when away. Now they are facing a much better team so they will have to be brilliant defensively.

This is why we are backing Basel to start well and end well and that means our main bet will be to see them winning at half time and full time.

For smaller stakes we will concentrate on the half time score, we expect to see a couple of goals in the first half, and the stadium should be a daunting atmosphere for the away side.
