Basel vs Paris Saint-Germain – 01/11/2016
Betting Odds: Basel 6.00 or 5/1 Draw 4.20 or 16/5 PSG 1.61 or 8/13Basel is a team which is known to be able to produce surprises. They’ve stunned quite a few teams in the past (Chelsea and Manchester United immediately come to mind) and have accumulated quite some experience in European Cups. This year, they’ve been less impressive, failing to win in their first 3 games of the group, scoring 1 goal and conceding 6. Their first game against PSG wasn’t extremely one-sided, but the French still managed to win 3-0. Basel also comes after 3 games in the last 7 days – so the players won’t be at the top of their physical form. Meanwhile, after a very slow start of the season, PSG seems to be gaining speed. They’re not scoring 4 or 5 each game as they did last season, mainly because the team needs to adapt to Emery’s style and Cavani has to fill Ibrahimovic’s shoes. Regardless, they are undefeated since late September, are undefeated in the Champions League, and know that a victory over Basel can send them in the knockout rounds without any other hassle.
