Basel vs Servette – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Basel finished some 18 points clear of Servette last season. Does that make them a banker to win here? Find out with our Basel vs Servette preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Basel to win

Basel and Servette both arrive in this game having drawn their first match of the league campaign last season. We expect one of them to taste defeat this time out though and, unfortunately, we think that will be Servette. They have lost two of their last three games compared to Basel who are unbeaten in that three game period with just one loss in their last 11 matches. The head to head record is pretty promising from a Basel perspective too; they have won three of the last five meetings between the sides and each of the last four when they’ve been at home.

Expecting a low scoring match

Our next tip for this game is that we will not be treated to a glut of goals. Each of the last two head to head games have gone under the 2.5 mark whilst the recent form of both sides does nothing to suggest the goals will flow. Both Basel and Servette have gone south of the 2.5 mark in each of their last three games. Basel have seen six goals in that time with Servette seeing just four.

Basel will keep a clean sheet

The last of our Basel vs Servette predictions is perhaps our most ambitious but we think it offers real value. We are backing Basel to keep a clean sheet. Basel kept a clean sheet in their last outing as they ran out 2-0 winners. Servette meanwhile have blanked in two of their last three games and, interestingly, they’ve lost both of them. On top of that, Basel have kept clean sheets in each of their last two clashes with Servette!

Basel vs Servette: Team News

Basel

Basel will be desperate to make a strong start to this league campaign after falling short last time as they finished second. After a draw last week – in their opening game – it’s imperative they win in their first home game of the season. Expectation will be high but they will be confident of delivering; Wouter Burger scored in the opening week – can he deliver again?

Servette

Servette have made a winning start to their campaign and will be looking to build on that here. That doesn’t mean they need to win the game though and they’d take a draw now if it was offered their way. We expect them to be under the cosh for extended periods; that means Nicolas Vouilloz will be a crucial one for them.
