In the Conference League playoffs, first leg, Basel will be looking to exact revenge on CSKA for a 1-0 setback in Sofia.
The two teams will square off at St. Jakob-Park. Despite underwhelming in the first leg, the Rotblau are still considered the favorites to win this doubleheader.
Prior to CSKA’s visit, the host team has no new selection concerns. The Bulgarian team, on the other hand, will likely play defense in the rematch as they look to hold onto their narrow lead in the match on Thursday.
However, CSKA Sofia isn’t known for being a good traveler, so we don’t think they can ruin Basel’s celebration in St. Jakob-Park.
Sasa Ilic, a Serbian tactician, is not going to make any adjustments to the group that overcame Basel last week.
The game will take place on August 25, 2022, at 18:00.
Prediction: Home Win.
