Thun vs Basel by Stanioooo
Well, at first I really don't understand why the odds are so high for Basel. They are the big favourite to win this match and the title in Switzerland again. Their start of the season wasn't the best- loss against Young Boys (2:0) and 3:1 win against Luzern. When I hear the name of Basel I just imagine the team to be in the first place in Swiss league. They are 4th now and I think that's a big motivation for them to take the first place as fast as they can- Basel are getting use to be first.. Such kind of opponents are not a big threat for them if they want to give their best performance and take the max points.
Thun started the season very bad with two defeats- 0:1 against Sion and 2:1 against Zurich, so what can we expect from them against really hungry team for the max amount of points tonight.. Basel don't have important misses for this match, so there's almost no logic in such odds. I think they have to be max 1.60 for Basel's win. It's really hard to believe Thun can win here, cause they haven't done that since 2012. Yeah, these teams have a lot of draws during this period of time between 2012-2017, but in how many of these matches Basel gave the best they can, cause we all know that every season this team had european matches and that's why they try to take a big lead of points ahead the second one, so they can afford losing some points when they have these much more important matches in Europe. They lost a lot of points in the end of the seasons when they theoretically won the title and some of these draws against Thun are right in this period(May).
Basel will be pretty motivated to win the max points tonight for sure and Thun are an opposition which can not be a big threat for the champions of Switzerland. Basel don't have matches from CL qualification cause they are in the groups, so they don't have to make rotations or spend power in the league for more important european matches..
Best of luck!
