At first glance, Arsenal – Basel is one of the most unbalanced games of this stage of the Champions League. Drawn in a group with PSG and Ludogorets, Arsenal has managed a credible 1-1 draw away from home against PSG and will now be looking to gather 10-12 points until they meet the French side again. Will they manage to do so?

Basel doesn’t seem like a team which can stop them. Although they appear fairly often in the group stages of the Champions League and even in the knock-out rounds of the Europa League, their squad for this year doesn’t seem capable of playing against the big teams.
Their draw on day 1 at home against Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets clearly shows their lack of quality. Sadly for them, Arsenal is a far better team than Ludogorets, and they won’t have the support of their home fans either.
The Gunners are looking better and better, on the other hand. Their squad seems capable of tanking multiple challenges, and they gained a credible 1-1 draw on day one in Paris.
They will now be looking to beat Basel at home and win both games against Ludogorets, leaving them with 10 points after four games, sure of qualification. Their attacking players will probably be too much for Basel, and we might see quite a few goals.
Arsenal vs Basel Betting Tips
This is one of the games where we see a handicap victory for the home side. Arsenal (-1,5) is the best bet of night, in our opinion – the Gunners should easily win by 2, 3 or more goals.
They will have possession, shots on goal and will score more than once, and one of the goals will come from Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean is in great form, and also scores from free kicks and penalties, as well as from open play. Clear game, clear outcome – or at least that’s what we think now.

Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions.

Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow.

Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it?
