St. Jakob-Park Stadium gates are open to receive a vital match for home team. Basel will face Liverpool and must show their potential to qualify ad go further in the competition. Anyway, Group B has Real Madrid in it, so they’d better win as many matches as they can.
Basel were not up to the challenge against Real Madrid and suffered a painful 5-1 loss, which complicated their situation in the group. Ivan Ivanov (injured) and Marcelo Díaz (suspended) are out of the match. Paulo Sousa hopes to see Derlis González score again, but he has to prepare a stronger defensive line to retain Liverpool’s strikers.
The Reds had difficult to beat the Bulgarian Ludogorets on matchday on, but they ultimately managed to earn three point in the table. Now, Brendan Rodgers will set up a strong midfield with Gerrard and (maybe) Lucas Leiva. Many players have had injuries, and they are not confirmed: Glen Johnson, Coutinho, Allen, and Sturridge. Balotelli is always a hope for goals, but his temper sometimes cause Liverpool some troubles.
Liverpool have never failed to score in Switzerland. Now they have another opportunity to score and win. The Reds let the victory slip away when they conceded a goal to Everton in the last minute. They must be alert and avoid such a mistake again.
Our score prediction: Liverpool will get a 2-0 win at Basel – Best odds at Bet365.
