Europa Conference League Predictions from LeagueLane

Partizani Tirana vs Basel
UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifications,
Date: Thursday, 29 July 2021
Kick-off 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Elbasan Arena.

Valentin Stocker and Arthur Cabral made the difference for Basel in the first leg of their UEFA Europa Conference League tie against Partizani Tirana. The return game in Albania will thus only be a formality.

Basel confirmed the obvious gulf in quality between them and Albanian outfit seven days ago in Switzerland where they clinched a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

Valentin Stocker and Arthur Cabral were the main catalysts. The former completed a brace, while the latter contributed with a goal and as assist each.

The Albanians will now have a mission impossible in an attempt to annul the three-goal deficit against a much stronger opposition.

Partizani have gone beyond the second qualifying round of any European competition just once (in 2016/17) and even then they only advanced past one rivals (Ferencvaros).

They did bag as many as eight goals over two legs against Moldovan Sfantul Gheorghe but these performances count for little here when they face a much tougher opposition.

The Albanian coach Ilir Daja can be worried about his men’s defensive displays as Partizani shipped two goals in each of their two games against the Moldovans in the opening round.

They allowed three goals last Thursday in Switzerland and we doubt they will be able to keep things quiet at the back here against the same opponents either.

Partizani Tirana vs Basel Head-to-head

  • The two sides met each other for the first time last week in Switzerland.
  • Basel justified the favorites tag by clinching a commanding 3-0 victory.
  • They completely controlled the happenings on the pitch allowing their rivals get no more than one shot on target and one corner on the occasion.

Partizani Tirana vs Basel Prediction

The difference in quality between these two outfits is enormous. While Partizani have never been in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League, Basel played the quarterfinal of the competition two years ago.

Basel kept their net untouched in their Swiss Super League opener away at Grasshoppers on Sunday (a 0-2 victory). We expect the visitors to pick up another easy win in a straightforward affair at Elbasan Arena.
