Europa League FC Basel vs Apollon Prediction

Thursday, starting at 21:00 on “St. Jakob-Park “in Basel, FC Basel plays against Apollon in the first round of the Europa League play-off.

FC Basel aims to reach the Champions League, but this time it missed the goal and at the same time changed the coach. The season started very weakly, with four consecutive matches in which he failed to win, two of which are in the second round of the most prestigious interclub competition. The match with PAOK ended with 1-5 in general, but from August 1 he beat all the opponents. Two of the five matches played against the Dutch at Vitesse Arnhem have managed to pass a 1-0 double. The morale of the team is high, at the end of last week had a more friendly duel, with Montlingen amateurs in the Swiss Cup, the score being 3-0.

Apollon was one of the most active teams in Cyprus, both in terms of offensive and competition. He played in Europa Lague and in the previous edition, when he had renowned opponents, including Lyon, who managed not to laugh, scoring in four of his six games in front of teams such as Atalanta and Everton. This time, because of the Uefa’s coefficient and changes, it has been forced to play in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. He played relatively well, especially because of his own field match and thus passed Stumbras (2-1), Zeljeznicar (5-2) and in the previous tour he did training with Brest, which he managed to eliminate with 4-1, all of these results were possible due to home games.

Betting Prediction FC Basel vs Apollon

Apollon is a troubled team in the away games, the two defeats he suffered this season of the Europa League came in and were identical, 0-1. On the other hand, Basel FC is an enigma, in the previous tour did not want to win much more categorically, although it could do this and make me ask a question about the desire to qualify in groups. However, the Swiss know how to play their chances at home, especially now that I come after five wins and I think they will eventually win this match, but not without having at least two score changes.

Betting Tips: FC Basel scores over 1.5 goals
Odds: 1.43
