Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Basel and CSKA Sofia face each other at St. Jakob-Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. The Rotblau booked their place in the Europa League playoffs by beating the likes of Osijek and Anorthosis, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the decider. Basel have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions at the start of the season, and we are positive that they will find the net against CSKA.
It has to be noted, though, that talented attacker Julian Vonmoos is sidelined through suspension. The Bulgarians, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Basel by beating Sirens, BATE Borisov and B36 Torshavn. Seeing that CSKA Sofia look sharp in front of goal as well, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. Anyhow, the hosts are closer to advancing to the group stages than the visitors.
