FC Basel vs Lugano Prediction
Basel has put together a good run of form and has now gone 3 games without defeat. They have kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 games but they have been recently drawing games unnecessarily.
Meanwhile, Lugano lost their last 2 h2hs in a row and are without a win against this foe since their last 4 meetings. But they come here on the back of 2 consecutive league wins along with a 5-game unbeaten run.
We feel that a draw or an away win is likely to occur this Sunday.
