PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The second qualifying round of the Champions League will get underway with seven games. In one of them two runners-ups of their leagues will meet each other. The Greek PAOK welcomes the Swiss Basel at its Toumba Stadium in Thessaloniki. The hosts are favorites. Will they prove this status?

PAOK became the runners-up of the Greek Superleague two years in a row. Last time Razvan Lucescu’s team earned sixty-four points. Also three points have been taken by the national football federation’s decision. Its main statistics looked like this: twenty-one wins, four draws and five losses. The Greek footballers have scored 59 goals and conceded 19 goals. AEK from Athens as the new champion had a six-point gap over the silver medalist.

The Northern Eagles won the Greek Cup by winning over AEK 2:0. The Black and Whites played six friendlies with an equal portion of results. They have won over Steaua and De Graafschap, drawn with Gent and Anderlecht, lost to Royal Antwerp and Nordsjaelland.

Last year the Swedish Ostersunds has eliminated PAOK from the ultimate round of the Europa League’s qualifiers.

Last season Basel took part in the Champions League's group stage along with Manchester United, CSKA and Benfica. The Swiss champion possessed the second place just after the Red Devils and entered to the play-offs. There it has been eliminated by another English powerhouse Manchester City.

FCB underperformed substantially in the Swiss Superleague. The Red and Blues lost their champion title for the first time within a lot of years. Young Boys became the new national champion and had fifteen points of advantage over Basel. Recently Rafael Vicky’s guys have dropped in Uhren Cup losing to Wolverhampton (1:2) and Feyenoord 0:5. They began unsuccessfully the Superleague-2018/19 by losing to Sankt-Gallen 1:2.

Obviously, these sides move to the different directions. PAOK entered to the national Greek football elite. Basel left its previous level and gathered the defeats in many competitions. Actually the bookmakers consider the home side as the favorite of upcoming fixture. We believe, the guests will lose again. Therefore, we predict the Greek team’s victory and recommend to bet on this with a remarkable coefficient of 1.84.
