CSKA vs Basel Prediction 18 October 2017

Tournament: Champions League Qualification
Location: VEB Arena
Match date: 18.10.2017 at 19:45

On October 18 2017 at 19:45 in Moscow in the upcoming regular game of the third round of the UEFA Champions League group stage the local CSKA will play against their guests Basel.  

Even though CSKA were rather unstable in the starting games of the new season in the national championship and yet the victory in the latest match against Krasnodar and the fact that the leaders lost points let CSKA shorten the distance to the second and the first places. CSKA have already played two games in the group stage of the Champions League where they outplayed Benfica 1:2 and lost to Manchester United 1:4.

As for the championship of Switzerland, the situation in it is by far not a traditional one. Basel are one of the teams which make the situation really unusual as they have already made a lot of mistakes. Their unstable results only let the teams gain 18 points which let them take the 4th place in the standings five points below the leaders. In their two rounds played in the Champions League Basel lost to Manchester United 3:0 at the Old Trafford and after that they easily won against Benfica 5:0 with the devastating 5:0.

The game on Wednesday will be the first one played between CSKA and Basel in their history. CSKA, just like Basel won their latest games. We don’t really want to underestimate the strength of CSKA and yet there are a few important players missing in their squad. As for Basel, they are totally ready and all for the footballers are ready to play. Anyway, it seems to us that there will be a lot of goals scored in the upcoming match.
