Trabzonspor vs FC Basel Prediction
Basel had come off the group stage opening match with a massive 5 goal lead. Even though the opponents were from an inferior league, they still had the momentum to create havoc at the other end. Besides that, it is to be noted that the host has successfully limited the Getafe offense to one goal in their previous league tie.
Hence, there is more chance for the host to open their account in the league and we can see goals at both sides of the field.
However, the traveling side has clear momentum of winning along with them. But they have fared against the smaller teams in their league. In comparison, the Turkish league is marginally stronger than theirs. Hence, there is a possibility that the home team will have more chances in bagging the three points from the bout.
