Lugano vs Basel Prediction & Betting tips
Anyone who had to compete in the Swiss Super League at the Stadio di Cornaredo in Lugano had an easy game at the start of the season and was served the points on a silver platter. FC Lugano have now been unbeaten at home for six games or around six months. A prognosis for the away win does not seem to be appropriate between Lugano and FC Basel.
The Ticino are in seventh place in the Super League table. 30 points from 26 games mean a cushion from eight points to the relegation places. The FCL should not imagine that there are ten games to be completed.
FC Basel had already said goodbye to the title race, but now senses morning air again due to the point loss of the top teams from Bern and St. Gallen. The gap to the top has melted to five points. With a win, the Bebbi can put pressure on the competition on Wednesday.
Lugano wants to avoid the direct relegation battle, Basel tries again to intervene more intensely in the championship race. In general, the starting point suggests placing a tip on the guests between Lugano and FC Basel if the home side would not have found their home strength in the Cornaredo fortress.
Lugano has established itself in the Super League since it was promoted five years ago. The relegation battle remains an issue every year. On Wednesday, Maurizio Jacobacci’s team has the opportunity to stand out from the competition in the table cellar. The Bianconeri no longer pursue any other goals this season.
The odds comparison of the betting base indicates that a point win against FC Basel is not unrealistic. After all, Lugano has been unbeaten in its own stadium since November last year, although there were only six home games in the Super League during this period due to the crisis.
Last weekend, Maurizio Jacobacci’s team away from FC Zurich 1-0 defeat that could have been avoided if their two own aluminum goals had led to goals. The FCL has always been dangerous, which is an indication of targeting the odds on goals scored by both teams between Lugano and Basel.
Lugano is still battered in terms of personnel. Sulmoni, Custodio, Macek, Rodriguez and Kryeziu will be injured. For this, the Ticinese were active again on the transfer market and signed the Brazilian Jefferson. The central defender may make his debut for FC Lugano on Wednesday.
FC Basel :
After many years of dominance, FC Basel has already lost the role of the Super League leader. But that doesn’t mean that the title fight is ticked off this year.
Especially after the last point loss of the competition, coach Marcel Koller is now motivated again.
However, the Bebbi currently lack consistency and sovereignty. There were three wins and one defeat after the restart, but even the successes in the cup in Lausanne and in the league for relegation candidate Xamax were very tough. Nevertheless, the tested bookmakers between Lugano and FC Basel give a forecast of a guest win.
This is partly due to the slight increase in form last weekend when FCB won 2-0 at home against Sion. Samuele Campo and Kemal Ademi were the goal scorers. Ademi in particular will be particularly looking forward to the game in Lugano, because the attacker has already scored three times against Ticino this season.
It is conceivable that Kemal Ademi will slip into the starting XI and Arthur Cabral will be given a break. Overall, Marcel Koller will not be able to avoid some changes due to rotation. Blas Riveros or Ramires are other candidates to play from the start. Due to injury, the Bebbi will have to do without Kaiser, Zuffi and van Wolfswinkel.
