Zalgiris vs Basel Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (15/09/2022)

Zalgiris will face Basel in another fixture from the 2nd round in Group H of the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Zalgiris vs Basel: Top Free Betting Tips

Basel should win this group with ease but it is actually surprising to see them with such high odds on the road. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Basel are the favorite here and the much bigger team but Zalgiris have actually been impressive in both Europe and their domestic league lately and we expect them to score a goal in this match. Basel are impressive in attack but on the defensive side of things, they concede goals in almost all of their games. Even Pyunik Yerevan managed to score a goal in the first match of the group stage while Basel scored three.

Match Result – Basel

Perhaps there is an expectation that Basel may not win this match due to Zalgiris' performances. The home team has lost a single match in their last 10 games and at the same time, a whole bunch of their games ended in draws. They play well defensively but sometimes concede a lot of goals against bigger teams and this is what we expect against Basel. The visitors are still not in their best form but are a massive club when compared.

Total Corners – Under 11

The corner lines here are higher than usual because Basel are a team that practices extreme attacking football but they will be the visitor and we do not expect more than 10 corners. Zalgiris are a team that does not take a lot of corners but their defense is also quite good and they do not allow a lot to their opponents. In the first match, they took just 2 corners while Slovan against them did not take a single corners. Basel took 4 at home against Pyunik, so we do not expect a lot more on the road now.

Zalgiris vs Basel: Form, Recent Games, and News

Zalgiris Preview

Zalgiris have been the champion in Lithuania for several years in a row but the level of football there is much lower than that in most European leagues and we saw that in their qualifiers. The team failed in the Champions League and then failed in the Europa League which sent them here. Based on their recent performances, they might surprise us.

Basel Preview

Basel were once the most dominant side in Switzerland but that changed a few years ago and they have not yet reached that same level. They have been improving a lot and the most notable change is in the defense as they concede a lot less than before. In the Europa Conference League, Basel are actually one of the favorites to win the entire tournament if we do not count the teams from the Top 5 leagues.
