Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Basel will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Osijek when they host Anorthosis at their St. Jakob-Park in the Europa League third qualifying round. The Rotblau are on a quest to put an end to Young Boys’ dominance in the Swiss Super League, but they have big ambitions for the Europa League campaign as well. Summer signing Arthur, who found the net in the 2-1 win over Osijek, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
Anorthosis, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but given their anything but good away record in European competitions, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the RotBlau. It has to be noted that the Cypriotes were beaten by Laci (0-1) and Getafe (0-4) in the previous two away games in the Europa League.
