Basel
VS
CSKA-Moscow
Basel are second in their group with six points and a win over CSKA Moscow will see them extend the gap between the two teams to six points and pretty much guarantee their progression into the next phase. They have been impressive in their group games, even though they lost 3-0 at Manchester United, they were still reasonably competitive. Following on from this, they won 5-0 at home over Benfica and won 2-0 at CSKA Moscow, where they managed 7 shots on target and 5 shots off target on 46% possession. Believe they will dominate possession here now they are playing at home, and though they are still missing striker Van Wolfswinkel, they also showed they can win without him in Moscow.

 

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.
