CSKA Moscow have the long trip to Switzerland to play a side they were outmatched in the reverse game, and now must win if they are to have a chance to progress into the next stage of this competition. They not only lost 2-0 at home to Basel, but lost 4-1 at home to Manchester United though they did beat an underperforming Benfica side 2-1 on the road.On the weekend they lost 1-0 at 8th placed Arsenal Tula which does not bode well for them in this game.
Though Basel do have a top of the table clash with Young Boys on Sunday, it is at home and is five days away, which means they can focus on winning here, and cement their spot into the next stage. With the rewards to go with this, expect them to be up for this game, and dominate from the start. They will not want to drop points in this game, as they have Manchester United next up, and would likely lose this game, which may leave them having to win at Benfica to finish second. A win here will avoid this scenario, so like them to be ready to go out there and play similarly to what they showed in Moscow a fortnight ago.
