Basel are looking for a good preparation for the participation in the Champions League qualifiers and this competition is an excellent opportunity for that.

However, in the first round of this competition, they failed to a convincing 3-0 defeat against Young Boys. Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side has been very efficient lately and they scored at least three goals in their last nine official matches in the last season.

Basel vs Feyenoord: Prediction
Basel put a decent display in the first round, but failed to a 2-1 defeat against Wolverhampton. They are capable of improving in this one and book a victory against very strong opponent. They’ll also enjoy greater support from the stands.
