Basel are in good shape and form this season, they are almost running away with the trophy in just 7 games. They are currently top of the table with 21 points, 9 points ahead of 2nd placed Young Boys. Furthermore, they are currently on a winning streak since the beginning of the season.
Meanwhile, Ludogorets of Bulgaria have been good also but not as their host. They are currently 3rd in the Bulgaria First League Table, 4 points behind Levski Sofia on top.
