Sport Betting Tip: Shakhtar Donetsk - Basel, Europa Leauge
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Shakhtar Donetsk - Basel, Europa Leauge
I can't see Basel getting anything from this game. Sure, they played perfect in the double against Frankfurt and managed to knock them out. Shakhtar Donetsk managed to eliminate Wolfsburg with 2 victories. Looking at these teams, Basel was a dissapoinment in the league and Shakhtar is dominating the Ukrainian league. Shakhtar has better players and are on a good unbeaten run and beat Wolfsburg 3-0 in their last match to reach this stage. They were a little unlucky in the Champions League group stage but did win away against a good Atalanta side and drew away at Man City. The Swiss side Basel are good at grinding out results but this looks a hard task tonight.
Shakhtar are undefeated in ten games since the restart, winning eight and drawing two, so they should cope with a Basel team who look poor on the road and will be missing key players
Three goals in the space of four second half minutes saw Shakhtar set up a quarter-final meeting with FC Basel after their 5-1 aggregate win over Wolfsburg. This match will take place in Gelsenkirchen and the Ukrainian side have a solid away record of late, winning three and drawing one of their last four. FC Basel earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, but it came at a cost with key men Jonas Omlin and Eray Comert now ruled out.
They haven't been great on their travels of late, winning only two of their last six. The absence of key men for the Swiss side means Shakhtar will be confident of earning their semi-final spot in this one.
These two have met five times going back to 2008 and Shakhtar Donetsk have won four and they have done this with over 2.5 goals in each of those games with scores 3-1, 3-0, 5-0. 2-1. The other game was a win for Basel and by the score of 1-0 . This game could be with the team from the Ukraine and they can deliver the goods with goals in both halves and with two goals to the good they may allow Basel back in the match but come good with a third and secure the win and be over 2.5 goals and winning both halves.
I am backing Shakhtar to win this game. Both teams are in great form but i think Shakhtar has more quality and they play at home. Basel is in amazing form as well since 1Januari they won almost everything and scored alot of goals. My prediction is 2-1 or 3-1 for Shaktar.
My prediction: Shaktar Donesk win FT
