PAOK vs Basel PREVIEW & PREDICTION 24/07/2018


Tuesday, starting at 18:30, the PAOK – FC Basel match will be played in the Champions League preliminaries.

The two bands have never met in history, the duel on Tuesday night will be the first direct match between PAOK and FC Basel.

The formation prepared by Razvan Lucescu is in a visible increase from the season to the season. After being extremely close to winning the title in Greece, PAOK proposes for this season the qualification in the Champions League groups and the win of the championship. In the friendly games, “white-blacks” showed an offensive force, the team in Thessaloniki managed to score in every disputed duel. Thus, we are astonished at a game where the hosts will try to grab the fate of the qualifying yet on the tour.

On the other hand, FC Basel is in opposition to PAOK. “Blue-Roses” is constantly regressing, losing the title to Switzerland and failing to surprise in friendly matches. Thus, we find Basel after a black series of 4 consecutive defeats in all competitions, during which it cashed not less than 13 goals. The difference in value between Swiss and Greek is not a significant one, but we think that if Basel does not force the tournament yet the chance that the team prepared by Wicky to get in the next stage of the competition will be extremely low. That’s why we choose to bet “reserved.”

PREDICTION: PAOK to win @ 2.05
