Basel News & Form

Logo FC BaselThe Bebbi are coming off a disappointing 2-1 home loss to St. Gallen in the Swiss Super League last Saturday. The manager Marcel Koller made some changes in his starting eleven which affected Basel’s game, so the Bebbi didn’t deserve to earn anything from this clash.

At the start of the season, Basel thrashed off Sion 4-1 on the road. Albian Ajeti led the way with a goal and a couple of assists, while the talented 22-year old striker also netted once against PSV last Tuesday. Midfielder Luca Zuffi scored one goal and made two dishes, while winger Valentin Stocker added a goal and an assist.

PSV Eindhoven News & Form

PSV-EindhovenThe Lightbulbs started the new season with a 3-2 victory over Basel, while they lost 2-0 to Ajax in the Dutch Super Cup last Saturday. PSV Eindhoven conceded after just 35 seconds of play, and the Lightbulbs were completely outplayed by Ajax for most of the match.

The manager Mark van Bommel cannot be satisfied with his team’s performance at the start of the season. Three different players scored a goal each against Basel including the 22-year old striker Sam Lammers who’s doubtful for the second leg, while winger Donyell Malen added a dish along with a goal.

Basel vs PSV Head to Head

While Basel defeated PSV in a friendly in 2015, their previous duel was the first competitive clash. PSV Eindhoven took the lead early in the game, but Albian Ajeti scored an equalizer in the stoppage time of the first half. Basel had a 2-1 lead after Omar Alderete netted in the 79th minute, and the Lightbulbs rallied to overcome the deficit with two goals in the final three minutes of the clash.

Betting Odds and Predictions: Basel v Eindhoven

As I’ve already mentioned, the bookmakers listed PSV as a firm favourite to reach the next round. You can take PSV at 4/9 odds to qualify with Bet365, while Basel is set at 13/8 on the same platform. Still, Bet365 set Basel as a slight 6/4 favourite to win the second leg. The price on PSV to win is 12/5 with William Hill that offers 13/8 odds on a draw.

When it comes to the totals, the bookies expect to see at least three goals, and Betway offers 8/13 odds on the over 2.5 goals, while the under pays 6/5. Likewise, BetVictor offers 1/2 odds on both teams to find the net.

Our Basel vs PSV Eindhoven Betting Tip

The first leg was a proper high-scoring affair even though the teams combined for just 14 shots in the total. As I’ve expected, we have seen a poor defensive display on both sides, and I think the second leg will have a similar scenario.

However, keep in mind that Basel needs a 1-0 or 2-1 victory to eliminate Eindhoven. We could easily see a cautious approach in the first 45 minutes, but the eventual opening goal will be a dramatic gamechanger whoever gets it. Therefore, I suggest you take the over 2.5 goals at 8/13 odds with Betway while picking the over 1.5 goals in the second half is another interesting choice at 4/5 odds with BetVictor.
