Benfica – Basel : Preview & Prediction
This is a special match for the SLB, punished 5-0 a few months ago in Switzerland. Good group A final with no point on the clock, the Eagles owe a revenge to their audience. The stakes are far more important for the Basles, who are second on equal points with CSKA. While the Russians will have a hard time competing with Manchester United in the theater of dreams, the Swiss club know that a point could be enough to validate a place in the eighth … Without pressure, Lisbon can spoil the party?
The Lisboètes have conceded five defeats in as many days in this group A. They especially saw their nets tremble 12 times, for a single goal scored …
Benfica had lost heavily in the first leg (5-0) in Switzerland.
Basel dropped Manchester United on the last day (1-0).
The Swiss have won their last five games in all competitions.
The Swiss are not joking, as evidenced by their victory over MrU on the last day. Opposed to a Portuguese club totally demobilized, the Helvetians, well above the first (5-0), should logically validate their place for the eighth in the most beautiful ways. Victory of FC Basel!
