BASEL v SEVILLA – EUROPA LEAGUE
March 10 2016, St. Jakob-Park, 18:00 GMT+0
Basel, a Swiss team, that can be underestimated due the league they play in, but that should not be the reason to label them as a underdogs. They have proven themselves to be a strong team and are able to play at the top level. In this match we give home advantage high importance when choosing a winning side, especially when it’s clear that Sevilla is a poor traveller. When looking at last 14 matches Sevilla played away from home in Spanish Primera they won zero of them. Even against teams that are arguably worse than Basel.
The home side will be without main goalkeeper Vaclik, but with great replacement in Germano Vailati we should not worry too much. The visitors will miss Reyes, Krychowiak and Andreoli. Of course Sevilla have won last 2 Europa Leagues, but this season they are only the shadow of a team they used to be. With 0.25 goal advantage for the home side I believe that Basel will not disappoint us.
Prediction: Basel +0.25
Odds: 1.85 Pinnacle/SBOBET
