UEFA Champions League – Group A
Date: Tuesday, 1st November, 2016
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,

Basel will hope to extend their unbeaten form at home as they host PSG on Tuesday night at St. Jakob Park.

Basel will enter this fixture from a back to back victory last week. They defeated Grasshopper 0-2 on the road on Saturday afternoon. Except for the two Champions League defeats, Basel have been unbeaten in all competitions this season. Basel will be hoping to win this game to get chance of playing in the knock-out stage of either of the Europe competitions.

PSG are a win away from round 16 qualification, they are currently 2nd in the group with 7 points. PSG will enter this game from a 0-1 away win against Lille on Saturday, they will hope to build on that win as they travel to Switzerland. At the same time, the French Champions are way short of the usual best. And their dominance in the domestic league was nullified by the fairly tale run of OGC Nice.
