JORDAN has had a look the Europa League and come up with a game he likes for goals.
He says: I’m sticking to the game that was the most open for both sides last week and that was St Etienne hosting Basel in a 3-2 win.
The French have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 5 in all comps and 6 of their last 7 away games, only keeping one clean sheet in their last 13 on the road.
The Swiss concede against the majority of teams in their domestic league but are usually good enough to put three or four past each side too so for St Etienne to score three in the first leg would lead me to believe we should have a repeat performance here in Basel.
With only one goal separating the two teams its anyone’s to qualify and a 1-0 win would see the Swiss through. That will be unlikely though considering the first leg but no two matches are the same.
Both to score is short with the best available price at 15-19 so I’m going to take a smaller stab at over 2.5 match goals. Two of Basel’s three home group games saw BTTS & Over 2.5 Match Goals with only one of St Etienne’s away game going over. The French, however, did score in every away game and I think they can here.
