Basel Vs APOEL Prediction
FC Basel had a 2-2 draw with Servette within their previous experience at the Swiss Super League. The host has lost only two of their last five complete fixtures.
APOEL Nicosia has declared only one win in the past five games in their program across all significant contests.
It needs to be noted that FC Basel will be hosting following a three-goal direct in the first leg. Therefore, we can expect the host to be emotionally powerful in the sport since the players will be on high morale.
Basel is based on a three-game winless streak in their own home matches in the league. On the other hand, the host has not lost in any of those Europa League matches held here (3W) in this season.
In sharp contrast, Nicosia has won just one of their three away games in the Europa League. Aside from that, the visitor has lost their last two excursions on the street.
Together with their goal cushion, Basel will have a small edge over APOEL in the battle. Having a poor away form in all significant opponents will pull back the visitors in Basel.
APOEL Nicosia will need a four-goal margin thriller at Basel to qualify for another round in the championship.
Sadly, the visitors have not won a match in any major European competitors by more than two goals since 1963. So, the odds of that happening are very rare, particularly against FC Basel.
Nicosia is one of the very successful Cypriot clubs along with the previous year winners. But in contrast with the Swiss league, they are somewhat inferior in the overall competition.
If Basel could find a fresh sheet success away from home, then they can probably keep or extend their lead at the conflict at the conveniences of their turf.
Along with that, Basel is going to be backed up by their own home floor advantage. To make things simpler for the host, Nicosia has gained only two of the previous 25 away games at the Europa League.
As such, the punters will proceed with FC Basel since the favorites to win in the clash. Since we saw Basel scoring three goals from the first leg, then there is a possibility that the match will produce over 1.5 targets within five minutes.
