Team to win both halves prediction: Basel

Total team goals: Basel over 1.5 goals
Secondly, bet on Basel to score 2 or more goals. They limited Zalgiris to only two shots on target in the first leg. This home game presents the hosts with a chance to remain on top of the Group H table, even with a wider margin. Zalgiris is the last in the group and while they still have a chance of being in the playoffs as only 3 points is the difference between them and Basel, the veracity of failing to win at home could become manifest in this trip to Switzerland.
