They have an overall record of 5 draws and 5 losses at this stage and they are poised to struggle against seasoned campaigners like Basel on Tuesday.

Anyhow, PAOK have some Europa League group stage appearances in their bag. So, they are not a side short on experiences. But again, there is no doubt that Tuesday’s game will be a big test for the Greek outfit.

FC Basel were in the group phase for last two seasons and they even got to the round of 16 last term, before losing out to the mighty Manchester City.

The Swiss side are not the most consistent while coming into the qualifiers. But they have never lost the first double legged tie at this stage of competition.

PAOK vs Basel Head-to-head

This will be the first competitive meeting between PAOK and FC Basel.

PAOK vs Basel Prediction

Basel are favorites to edge this double legged tie, mainly down to PAOK’s poor record at the competition. However, since their domestic season are yet to open and little competitive match practice in the bag, we may look beyond an away win for this first leg fixture.

Thus, the main pick has to be both teams scoring in this game. PAOK had scored and conceded in each of their six friendly games. While Basel conceded 11 goals in three friendlies before the 1-2 defeat to St. Gallen in the Swiss Super League. This also means, that you can confidently back over 2.5 goals here or in combination with btts.

PAOK vs Basel Betting Tips

  • Both teams to Score at 1.91.
  • Draw no Bet – Basel at 2.50 odd.
  • Over 2.5 ft goals at 2.20.
