Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Basel have not been handed a tough draw in the Europa Conference League round 2 as they take on Partizani of Albania in the double-header. The RotBlau aim to get their job done in the first leg, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the underdogs. Even though Basel were having their ups and downs in pre-season friendlies, home win should be considered as head coach Patrick Rahmen has a number of high-profile players to choose from.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Arthur Cabral, who scored 18 goals in the 2020/21 Swiss Super League campaign. Partizani, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Basel in round 2 by beating Sf.Gheorghe of Moldavia. The Albanians proved their worth on their Conference League debut, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Thursday’s clash against Basel, who are a very experienced European side.
