basel vs getafe Tip Reason:

Basel play host to Getafe on Thursday evening, as they look to continue leading the way in Group C. the visitors are hot on the heels of their Swiss hosts, who’ll they’ll be hoping to leapfrog by winning. It’s been a solid European campaign for Basel so far. The Swiss side have bagged themselves seven points from three games and are yet to taste defeat in Group C. Offensively, they’ve certainly left their mark, scoring eight goals, while they’ve also kept a couple of clean sheets. On the face of it, all is well. However, for all Basel have got desirable results in this competition, some of their efforts have left plenty to be desired, especially from a defensive point of view. It was all smiles when Marcel Koller’s men scored five against Krasnodar at this venue on match-day one, though as they surrendered an abundance of chances, the result didn’t quite reflect what happened on the pitch. Going forward, the Swiss were good, but they certainly lacked defensive solidity. That game was followed by a 2-2 draw in Turkey, where the Belgians once again looked good in the final third but struggled to contain their opponents. In the reverse of this fixture, which took place just a fortnight ago, Basel tightened up, but we shouldn’t be fooled by that. Back on their own patch, Koller’s side are likely to take a much more cavalier approach, which should mean that their defensive inefficiencies come to fore once again. While Basel have attacked well and defended poorly at home, Getafe have done so on their travels. On their own patch, the Spaniards, who’ve claimed a healthy six points from their first three matches in Group I, have kept things quite low-key, scoring one and conceding one in just over 180 minutes of football. When Getafe played away from home against Krasnodar on match-day two, they delivered a pleasing attacking effort, which culminated in two goals for and all three points. That said, they were weak at the back, so much so that they were fortunate to concede only once. With what we’ve seen in Group I so far, ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ stands out as a viable betting option ahead of this fixture. From an attacking point of view, Getafe thrived when playing on the break away against Krasnodar, so they ought to relish taking on a Basel side that will inevitably come forward at home. Consider this in conjunction the respective home and away efforts mentioned above and it’s easy to feel that the chances of a relatively high-scoring unfolding are greater than the early prices suggest.
