Basel vs Qarabag Predictions & Analysis

Qarabag missed a huge chance to go two points clear off Basel atop the Group H standings in the previous round when they conceded a late equalizer in a 2-2 home draw to Omonia Nicosia.

They are now level on points with Basel ahead of the final day fixture on Thursday evening away at St. Jakob-Park.

Basel are in a much better situation going into the tie. They have scored one goal more than Qarabag so far in the competition, meaning they would keep the top spot in the group even with a draw here.
