Basel vs PAOK Prediction 1 August 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League Qualification
Location: St. Jakob-Park
Match date: 01.08.2018 at 19:00

On August 1 2018 at 19:00 at the St. Jakob-Park in the upcoming regular match of the second qualification round of the UEFA Champions League the local Basel  are going to play against PAOK. In the first round game Basel lost with the minimum goal difference and now they are eager to get back to the race for the group stage. Yet, the Greece are also seriously thinking about making it further. So, let’s try to find out who are more likely to get what they will to.

The team from Switzerland has actually been participating in the Euro Cups during the last few years. They even made it to the play-offs of the Champions League and played against the teams like Bayern and Manchester City, yet they did it unsuccessfully. In the previous season Basel didn’t manage to win the national championship and that’s why they have to make it to the group stage through the qualification playing against the competitors who are less experienced but also extremely motivated.

As for PAOK, they took the second place in their national championship as they were outpaced by AEK. They are also really eager to take part in the Euro Cups and in the last few years they mostly played at the group stages of the Europa League. Yet, they have never made it to the main part of the Champions League and they are obviously really eager to change that tradition.

Despite the fact that Basel lost in their first game in Greece, they still seem to be more likely to make it to the next stage this time. They are much more experienced in the Euro Cups and PAOK are obviously not very strong in their away matches. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that Basel are a bit more likely to make it further in the ongoing qualification.
