Lucerne vs Basel prediction
Lucerne will host Basel in a game from the Swiss Super League.
These teams are going in totally different directions. Lucerne is in 5 games losing row, just above the relegation zone, while their opponents are in perfect condition being in the title race, only a point behind Young Boys and also qualified for Europa League 1/16 finals.
Lucern has a few missing players for this game, but the biggest problem is they are connected with the defense. Schulz, Schwegler and Kakabadze are all injured, while another defender Grether is suspended. Injured are also Ndenge(MF) and Binous(FW).
Basel is in superb form right now. They progressed as first in their EL group, the team also trashed their biggest rival Young Boys 3:0 at home 2 weeks ago. The atmosphere in the team will be high for sure and the three points in this game against the depleted side of Lucerne are required. That's also the last round before the winter break, so it's always good to finish the year with a win.
Kuzmanovic(MF), Ramires(MF), Bua(MF), van Wolfswinkel(FW) and Dimitriou(DF) are the missing players in Basel.
Basel won the three matches against Lucerne during 2019 including the one during this season at home with the classical result 3:0. The odds for away win without any handicaps are too good to be missed.
