Match result: Basel
Basel were absolutely dominant in every single department during the first leg; despite being the away side this time round we don't see any outcome but another Basel win. They're unbeaten in five away games including winning their previous two Europa Conference League qualifiers away legs. Hammarby meanwhile are in poor form having won just once in their last seven matches. They'll need to come at Basel to have any chance but that will only aid the visitors.
Total goals: Over 3.5
Next up in our selection of betting tips is for the match to see over 3.5 goals. We considered going at 2.5 but believe there is serious value to be had by pushing the bet a little harder. Three of Hammarby's last five matches – including their last two – have gone over the 3.5 mark; their game average in the five game period is 3.2 but does include one goalless match. Basel have good pedigree on the over 3.5 market too; each of their last five have seen a minimum of four goals with an average of 5.0 goals per match.
Anytime scorer: Arthur
The last of our predictions focuses on who will score the goals. For Basel, we're backing Arthur to net at some point in the game. He's scored in each of his last seven games racking up a highly impressive 14 goals. Included in that spell is the hat-trick he bagged against Hammarby in the first leg; their defence is still having nightmares about him. We think he could terrify them once again and considering they had 18 shots in that last meeting, chances are likely to come his way.
Hammarby vs Basel: Meet the teams
Hammarby's form might be lacking somewhat with three defeats and three draws in their past seven games. They were outclassed in the first leg but will be hoping the home crowd can suck a few percent extra out of their team. It will still be a huge ask for them to overturn the deficit but Astrit Selmani at least poses a threat; he's scored five goals in five Europa Conference League games.
Historically, Basel's pedigree is beyond the Europa Conference League with knockout appearances in the Champions League and reaching the latter stages of the Europa League. It's about the here and now though and they'll feel they could go far in this competition given a strong wind. As for this match, the tie is stacked in their favour but they won't be making massive changes. Our goal scorer pick Arthur is the main to watch.
