Basel vs Grasshoppers by Saconex
Basel (4) vs Grasshoppers (10)
Basel are coming from their convincing away win vs Thun (8) on Saturday. They won this match in a very impressing way, controlling the match and showed us all that they have to be considered as the strongest team in Switzerland. After the loss in round 1, vs Young Boys (1), they also won 3-1 vs Luzern (3).
Grasshopper finished 8th last season and their away record wasn’t very impressing (3-4-11). They haven’t been at their best lately either, with only 1 point first 3 matches. They started with a very disappointing home loss vs newcomers Zurich (2), followed by a clear home loss vs Young Boys (losing it 0-4). Last match though, they finally managed to get goals scored in the 2-2 match away vs Luzern.
This match is well known to often end with goals both ways. In the last 12 meetings, 8 matches ended with over 2,5 goals. Basel are standing with 4 straight wins, and won the last match in May 1-3.
In 3 days Basel are facing lower league team Wettswil-Bonstetten in the Cup, that will probably give some new players/no regulars a chance so it is expected that Basel are starting with their best possible lineup here. Basel will win this match, for sure. Taking in mind the history between the teams, I think we can expect to see goals as well. Also, Basel can take the lead in the league with a big win, with better goal difference than Young Boys.
