Zurich vs Basel

Zurich welcomes Basel in round 35 of the Super League. With 2 matches to play Zurich has to chase points for Europa League or win the Swiss cup against Young Boys. Both tasks will be hard to fulfill and they can only hope Basel will be not be so focused with nothing to play and after a big won over Young Boys in midweek. Zurich is the 4`th team with 45 points but St.Gallen also has 45 but in horrible form. Zurich is playing unconvincingly lately and picked up just 2 wins from the last 10 matches. The only result worth mentioning was 4:0 against St.Gallen at home while they drew with Sion 3:3 and Lausanne 1:1. At least the attacker Frej has found his scoring ability and netted in 5 in the last 3 matches.
Basel is in tremendous form but 3 months to late. Boys have resolves the championship a long time ago. Basel`s poor run of form in early spring has cost them and it seems they are trying to make amends. Basel just destroyed Young Boys in midweek with 5:1 and showed there is still quality in this team. Basel has been stellar lately punching in goals for effect. Their last 3 matches have all gone over 5.5 goals and I don`t see this stoping. They won 7 of the last 8 matches though have had more problems on the road where they were not so convincing.

Zurich has had a hard time against Basel in recent seasons but the game have been interesting and with goals at both ends. On this ground at least.
Zurich has all to play for while Basel can be relaxed and I expect them to be dangerous.
Zurich is missing Alesevic, Bangura, Kempter, Maouche, Schättin while Basel is without Salvi, Vailati, van Wolfswinkel, Xhaka.

Bet : over 3 goals
