Match Preview

Chelsea

Chelsea did their job in Switzerland, managing to score 2 goals, and though they conceded a goal, the team got the victory and is half the way on the final. Chelsea has never won an Europa League/UEFA Cup and if they manage to pull this off, they will become the first team to win Champions League and Europa League consecutively in that order. Chelsea are without a loss in the last 12 competitive encounters at home record of W10-D2-L0. In their last seven Uefa Cup/ Europa League home matches the team has recorded W5-D2. The betting odds for Chelsea to win this match are @ 1.44 and look very attractive for those looking for a banker on Thursday night. We believe the Blues will win this match like they have won the previous one for sure. The Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.70 also looks nice, since we are expecting Basel to be looking for at least 2 goals, while Chelsea will be also looking for that victory and at least a goal from their side.

Basel

Basel’s undefeated record was ruined by the loss to Chelsea, but the team still has hopes for the final. They have managed to eliminated another London club, Tottenham in the previous round after, two identical outcomes in each game, and penalties afterwards. The thing is that Basel haven’t won any away game this season, recording D4-L2. In order to advance for the final, Basel would not only need to win, but will have to score at least 2 clean goals, hence win with 0-2 or win with at least 2 goal difference scoring at least 3, hence 3-1, 4-2 etc. The odds for Basel to win this match are @ 7.00. The odds for Basel to win with 2 goal difference are @ 12.00 and if you believe that the Swiss team can pull it off, these are the ones to back. We however believe Chelsea is too experienced to let this happen and Basel will most likely have to go home after this match.

Verdict

Betting tip #1: Chelsea to win @ 1.44. Considering that the team won the first match and is undefeated in 7 home matches for Europa League / Uefa Cup and that Basel hasn’t won an away match this season, this can be your banker for the night.

Betting tip #2: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.70. With Basel needing to score at least 2, and Chelsea probably going for at least 2, we should see at least 3 goals here as in the first match.
