leaguelane.com, 10 December 2019, 19:00

Basel have already qualified to the knockouts of the Europa, but have not yet ensured the group champion spot. Considering that they have the home advantage in this final match-day in the prelims stage, that too against the already-eliminated, dead-last placed Trabzonspor, there seems no reason to bet against the hosts, Basel.

The reverse encounter saw spoils being shared between the two. Then Trabzonspor had the home advantage, and the scoreline was 2-2.

Before, these two had clashed in the Uhren Cup in 2005, and then too, the scorecard was 2-2.

Basel were on the road the last match-day in the Europa. In the extremely competitive game, they had taken on Krasonodar, and failed to secure at least one point from the fixture. The 73rd minute penalty struck by the hosts was the sole goal in the match, and despite persistent effort, Basel had to concede defeat.

Meanwhile, Trabzonspor's woes in Europe continued, as they were defeated by Getafe the previous game week in the competition. In the low-scoring affair, the latter were on the road, but found no difficulty in dealing with their Turkish opponents. The final scorecard had read 0-1, in favor of Getafe.

This Thursday, consider how motivated both teams are to perform. Basel have already qualified, and are on high spirits. They just need another win to ensure that they finish as group champions, and to further help their cause, the team has home advantage as well.

The squad has also scored the most number of goals in Group C, and have conceded the least. They have also lost just once during this whole campaign, and will be confident as their counterparts come visiting.

On the other hand, Trabzonspor are completely winless in the competition till now this season, and in fact, disregarding a single draw, have lost all of their fixtures so far. Moreover, they have managed a total of three goals from their five matches in the tournament, which is the least of all teams in contention, and have conceded the most too.

Moreover, Basel are on a ten-game unbeaten run in front of the home crowd, and won nine of their last ten appearances. On the contrary, their opposite number remained winless in ten of their previous fourteen fixtures on the road.

Finally, the reverse fixture of this game had ended in a 2-2 draw, and then Basel were on the road. Take note that they have the support of the crowd, and the familiarity of the home pitch this Thursday.

Likely, count on a huge performance by the Swiss outfit, Basel, to take hold of the tag of group champions.
