Basel will be aiming to get their revenge on CSKA for a 1-0 loss in Sofia when the two teams face each other at St. Jakob-Park in the Conference League playoffs, first leg.
The Rotblau failed to impress in the first leg, but they are still seen as favourites to win this double-header. There are no fresh selection worries in the home team ahead of the visit of CSKA.
The Bulgarian outfit, on the other hand, aim to defend their slim lead in Thursday’s clash, and they are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the reverse fixture.
CSKA Sofia, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Basel’s party at St. Jakob-Park. Serbian tactician Sasa Ilic is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Basel a week ago.
