Vitesse vs Basel Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 9th August 2018
Vitesse vs Basel – Europa League: Vitesse: Vitesse is a very reasonable team from Dutch football.
Sometimes they tend to make good campaigns and manage to qualify onto the Europa League, just like it happened last year, where they featured on the group stage, but they couldn’t get through a group with teams like Lazio and Nice.
Vitesse is a typical Dutch team that attacks well, but that defends poorly. They already played on the previous round, where they’ve eliminated Viitorul from Romania.
They started off losing 2-0 away from home, but they still managed to snatch a 2-2 draw on that match. Then at home, they were stronger and have won by 3-1.
But it was clear that they are a team that upsets in some periods of the encounter. I should also mention that between the goalposts of this team is the Portuguese goalkeeper Eduardo.
Basel: This Basel team has been the strongest of Swiss football in recent years, however, last season, they’ve allowed Young Boys to slip
away, who have won the title and deservingly so, with an abysmal and almost unseen difference in terms of points.
Basel this year started off by playing on the Champions League’s qualification stage, but they were literally humiliated by the Greeks of PAOK.
They were defeated in both encounters and that way they fell onto the Europa League’s qualifiers.
In the league, they’ve also started off with 2 less positive results but on the weekend,
they’ve kicked off the crisis and managed to defeat Grasshopper by 4-2 at home on a much steadier and personalized display from Basel that allows us to anticipate a good scenario for this encounter against Vitesse.
Vitesse vs Basel – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this encounter, I can only see goals. These are two teams that defend poorly in general and that attack well having good performers on the attacking front, which reinforces my confidence that there will be goals here.
Normally on knockout matches, in 1st leg encounters, it is always risky to go on the “Over 2.5 Goals”,
but here I think we will have a match with goals taking into consideration what are the characteristics of both teams that like to produce offensive football
and that therefore in a lot of moments of the encounter get decompensated and they end up making a lot of defensive mistakes.
I expect more than 2.5 goals here and I think that the odds compensate the associated risk.
