Basel vs St Gallen (By: Saconex)
Switzerland Super League
Basel (2) vs St. Gallen (4)
Basel have had a very disappointing season overall and wont be able to grab the title this season. As it stands they are 19 points behind leaders Young Boys (1), and Thun (3) are hunting them from behind only 2 points behind. Total record is 9-6-4 with 38-33 in goal difference, but they started off the season after the break with the solid 0-4 away win vs Grasshopper (9) last time out. Eray Comert reported injured.
St. Gallen are placed 4th that possibly gives them a qualification spot for Europa League. Total record is 8-2-9 with 30-35 in goal difference. The guests are coming from winning in the first match after the break as well, 3-1 at home vs Zurich (5). Their away form isnt specially good though, with 1-0-5 last 6 away matches. Cedric Itten & Alain Wiss are both reported doubtful here.
* Basel won the last meeting by 1-3 back in October
* Last 10 meetings: 7-0-3
I expect Basel to win this match without the biggest problems. They looked very sharp in their last match vs Grasshopper and it is important to keep the second position and not invite Thun into a fight for that spot. St. Gallen wont normally be able to create trouble at St. Jakob-Park, they are the lowest scoring away team of the league and will probably go into this match with a defensive mindset. When that being said, St. Gallen actually won the last 2 meetings here, so expect Basel to be ready to turn that streak around again tonight. Overall I expect this to end with 3 points for Basel in a comfortable home victory. 2-0?
