Osijek looks weak at the start of the season in the national championship, but whether the Croatians will be able to play more confidently on September 17 in the Europa League with Basel – you will find the answer in the forecast. Who should you give preference to?
Osijek showed their best side last season, finishing fourth in the table and ahead of Hajduk. However, the team of Nenad Belitsa started the new season very poorly – after four rounds it is only on the sixth line in the table.
In the last round, the “white-blue” 3: 0 beat Rijeka and this victory was their first in the season.
Basel performed well last season in the Europa League, having managed to reach the quarterfinals, but were stopped by Shakhtar Donetsk. However, in the Swiss championship, Marcel Koller’s team was not so powerful – they managed to finish only on the third line in the table.
Also Basel suffered a fiasco in the Swiss Cup, losing in the final of the tournament with a score of 1: 2 to Young Boys.
Osijek have won just one victory in the last six matches
Only in one of the last three matches have Osijek conceded less than two goals
Basel have lost only one of their last four away matches
“Osijek” is just getting in shape and rolling into the season with great difficulty, which is clearly evidenced by one victory in four rounds of the championship. Basel has not played a single official match yet, but in two weeks the Swiss are unlikely to have seriously lost their form, this time was clearly enough for rest.
Basel has a serious experience advantage over the opponents, it also surpasses the Croats in terms of the selection of players, and it definitely has a chance of winning.
We believe that guests have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) at Basel . In BC Winline, this outcome is offered with odds of 1.65
