Analysis of Basel

Despite the 1 goals disadvantage from the 1st leg match, the home team has the advantage of having scored 2 goals in the away first leg match. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 31 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 18 conceded. They come to this match after a home win against Vaduz by (5‑1). Basileia has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches.

Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 7 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 53 of the last 61 have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 41 out of 61 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In the last 3 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (61'‑75') and 3 of their 8 goals between (46'‑60').

In the previous stage in Europa League, Basel had a good campaing, finishing leader in their group. In the first match against Saint-Etienne, they managed to score important goals as visitors in the 3-2 defeat. Now they can go on to the next phase with a simple win. They are in good form in the Swiss League and expect for this form to carry on to the Europa League. For this match coach Urs Fischer might be without Davide Calla and Andraz Sporar, that are still dealing with injuries.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Vaclík, M. Suchý, M. Lang, W. Samuel, B. Safari, M. Delgado, B. Bjarnason, L. Zuffi, T. Xhaka, M. Janko, B. Embolo.
Coach: U. Fischer.

Analysis of Saint-Étienne

The away team comes to this 2nd leg match with an advantage of 1 goals, but has suffered 2 goals at home in the 1st leg. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Ligue 1, they got an away tie against o Olympique Marseille by (1‑1). In the last 5 Liga Europa away matches Saint‑Étienne has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 losses.

Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In the last 20 away matches for all competitions there are 1 periods that stand out: they have conceded 10 of their 24 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Saint Etienne's campaign in the group stage wasn't very good, but they still managed to move on to the knockout stage. The win they had at home means that a draw in this match puts them into the next round. They have 6 consecutive games without recording a loss and if they manage to make it to seven, they will be in the next round. Coach Christophe Galtier should be without Jeremy Clement, Benjamin Corgnet, Loic Perrin, François Clerc and Robert Beric, who are hurt and Pajot who is suspended.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Ruffier, M. Bayal Sall, K. Théophile-Catherine, F. Pogba, F. Tabanou, R. Cohade, J. Clément, F. Lemoine, J. Bahebeck, O. Tannane, K. Monnet-Paquet.
Coach: C. Galtier.

Betting suggestion:

With a technically superior team and playing at home, Basel is the favorite for this match and we expect for that to happen after 90 minutes. So a bet in the asian handicap 0.0 should be of great value.
