Basel vs Omonia Nicosia Prediction and Analysis
A 1-3 defeat away at Hammarby in the qualifiers back in August remains the only defeat Basel has suffered across all competitions this season. They have so far managed to win 14 and drew 5 of the remaining 19 games.
Their start to this tournament was slow as they were held to a goal-less draw at Qarabag, but they got back to their best with a 4-2 win against Kairat on matchday 2.
They are second in the table at this moment, just behind on goal-difference with Qarabag.
Meantime, Omonia are without a win having drawn blank with Kairat on matchday 1 followed by a humiliating 1-4 defeat to Qarabag.
The Cypriots have struggled on the road this season and managed only 1 win from 7 across all competitions this season.
All things considered, a win looks routine for Basel and they could do it with a handicap since they scored 30 goals from 9 matches played at this stadium this season.
