Benfica vs Basel Prediction 5 December 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Estadio do Sport Lisbon
Match date: 05.12.2017 at 19:45

On December 5 2017 at 19:45 in the upcoming sixth round game of the UEFA Champions League at the Estadio do Sport Lisbon e Benfica the local Benfica are playing against their guests Basel.

The group stage of the current campaign of the Champions League is almost over. Manchester United have almost made it to the group stage as they only need to avoid a loss with a big score against CSKA. The second position in the table is still vacant where Basel and CSKA will be competing for it in the last round.

Basel unexpectedly outplayed MU in the previous round of the Champions League and it let them come back to the race for making it to the play-offs. It’s only up to them if they make it to the next stage or not. They only need to outplay Benfica in the upcoming game with any score. We must remind you that Benfica lost all of their games played in the current campaign of the Champions League and they only scored one single goal in all of them while Basel have a positive 9:5 goal difference.

The Eagles have not tournament motivation at all, as they lost all of their games and the victory in the upcoming match won’t change the situation for them. They can’t even make it to the Europa League from the third place in the group. They may only try to finished the campaign in the Euro Cups with a good result with their domestic fans watching and yet, considering their previous results, we don’t really think that they will manage to do it.

As for Basel, they, in their turn, need to win to make it further in the competition to improve their media image and gain more money. That’s why we think that they will be trying their best in the upcoming match and they will probably have an opportunity to win and gain three points this time.
