Lech Poznan v Basel Betting Tips: Match Preview
Lech Poznan started this Champions League season in qualification-round 2, against the Bosnian Sarajevo. After a victory with 2-0 in the first leg and 1-0 in the second leg, the team qualified for round 3 against a much stronger opponent Basel.
Just one previous meeting between the two teams back in 2011 a friendly match that has finished 0-0. Current performance rating 86% with just one loss in 7 games, that came in the first round of the Polish Ekstraklasa season 2015/16 against Pogon Szczecin with 1-2.
A victory in round 2 against KS Lechia with 2-1 and Lech is currently taking the 7th place with 3 points in the table. Next round is against the 10th Wisla Krakow on August 1st 2015, a few days away from this match.
We expect Lech to go all out in this match, as the visit in the Ekstraklasa and then against Basel in Switzerland will be tough, without securing a comfortable lead here.
Basel enters directly in qualifying-round 3 of the new Champions League season 2015/16, shortly after the Swiss season started. The team recorded two victories in the first two rounds against Vaduz with 2-0 and Grasshopper Club with 3-2.
Performance rating of 71% with 5 victories and 2 losses in the last 7 games. In the last 5 games, the team lost just one match, the friendly against Shakhtar, but bounced back with 2 friendly game victories against PSV and Bayer Leverkusen.
Overall a lot more experienced than their opponent, Basel shouldn’t have problems to get to the play-off round. Even a minimal loss would allow the team to overcome qualification-round 3, being known for their strong home performance.
While Lech Poznan just started the season with 2 games from the local Ekstraklasa, Basel has been preparing with friendly games against top European teams. After recording two losses against Munchen 1860 and Shakhtar, the team bounced back with victories against PSV and Bayer Leverkusen.
We expect Basel’s experience to play a key role for overcoming their Polish opponent, so back Basel to @ 2.50 with a bit of caution that this is still leg 1.
Previous meeting a 0-0 in a friendly match, we expect a goal or two to decide the outcome of this match, thus an Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.75 with bet365.
