FC Basel 1893 vs Getafe
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park (Basel).
Getafe had been the logical choice for the punters to count on to top the group. But their unexpected loss the last day against this same opponent, that too at home, has changed the equations.
The Spanish outfit has lost their top spot in the table, and with only three match-days remaining, they no longer seem to have the aura of invincibility associated with their name in the Group C.
The bottom-placed Trabzonspor may have given up, with just one point from their efforts so far, but Krasnodar will try their luck, and with them taking on the former this same match-day, do have the potential to come level on points to the Spaniards.
Suffice it to say, the encounter at the St. Jakob-Park does have the sway to determine the topper of the group, and in all probability, we can anticipate a fixture worthy of the tagline.

Basel vs Getafe Prediction
Last season, Bebbi had finished second in their domestic league an embarrassing 20 points behind the Young Boys, but this time around, they have a deficit of just one point, with one-third of the campaign under wraps.
Moreover, they do have the home advantage this Thursday and had won on the road against this same opponent, with a clean sheet as well. In addition, Jose Bordalas’s men have dropped their form compared to their preceding campaign, and with the hosts having the potential to top the charts in the Group, they will certainly put forth their best efforts.
There’s little probability for the guests to return with a clean sheet.
However, do note that they are part of the prestigious Spanish La Liga, whereas their opposite number comes from the comparatively inferior Swiss League. Furthermore, visitors are desperate. One more loss and they would squander away their chances to progress to the next round.
For sure, they will sweat it out on the pitch to avoid such an embarrassment. Henceforth, a Double Chance on the Spaniards looks promising.
