Basel take on Benfica is what should be a great game between two sides that are evenly matched. Basel will be at home which means that they will have the home crowd behind them which means they should get a big advantage from that. This game is a game which both sides will want to win since a place in the knockout stages will become much more likely with a win here.
As far as the goal scoring is concerned, I think this will be a game where we can see a lot of goals. In recent times, both sides have had really good attacking talent and they have used it well. In addition to that, the two teams have also had really bad records when it comes to defending and that will all lead to this being a really high scoring game. This will makes this game fun to watch and it will also make the over 2.5 goals a good bet to make. In addition to that, the both teams to score bet is also a great option.
As far as result is concerned, I am going to predict this game to end as a draw. Both sides are evenly matched with Benfica being slightly better. That being said, Basel will be at home which means that the draw is a very likely result. We are getting a good price on this bet as well so I this this is the best bet. That being said, the over 2.5 goals is probably a better option that betting on the draw.
