Basel vs CSKA Sofia
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park.
Bebbi were the runners-up of the Swiss Super League the last season, and they have gotten themselves to a point where they are a single win away from ensuring their participation in the Europa League.
As is known, the Super League is one of the top-rated competitions in the continent, and especially compared to their Bulgarian counterparts.
Going on, Marcel Koller’s men have also been a great threat at home lately, and in the meantime, their opposite number are struggling on the road.
As such, expect Bebbi to turn their killer instinct on, and get the job done this Thursday to progress to the Europa League.
Basel vs CSKA Sofia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Koller’s men have a 100% winning record against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in every single meeting so far.
- They have scored three or more goals in all clashes at home till now.
- The combined scorecard for the past two fixtures is 5-1, in favor of Bebbi.
Basel vs CSKA Sofia: Prediction
Koller’s men were unbeaten in 12 of their previous 15 overall games, and they remained so in 12 of their preceding 14 fixtures at home.
They had also scored two or more goals in three of their former four overall match-ups, and had done so in eight of their last twelve appearances at home.
On the other hand, the Armymen were winless in ten of their last thirteen road trips, and on top of that, they are from an inferior league compared to that of the Swiss top flight.
On top of that, Bebbi also do have a 100% winning record against this opponent, and have scored two or more goals in every single meeting against them till now. Even better, they have scored three or more goals in 100% of h2h encounters at this stadium.
Taking into account these stats, expect a Basel win this Thursday.
