Basel welcomes Xamax
Basel welcomes Xamax in a game from the last 36th round of the Swiss Super League. Let’s examine this clash in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Once again, Basel are going to finish the season at 2nd place, behind the champion Young Boys. There was a time when Basel were dominating the Swiss league, but now the roles are changed. At this point Basel have 68 points and a record of 19 wins, 11 draws and 5 losses. They are 20 points behind the champion Young Boys, which proves how dominant the champions are.
In terms of current form, Basel’s last five games in the Super League ended with four wins and just one loss – against the champion. In their last fixture Basel visited Thun and achieved a 2-1 win. Samuele Campo and Kevin Bua scored for the former champions, while Moreno Costanzo’s goal for Thun was not enough for the hosts.
Meanwhile Xamax will finish the season at 9th place, which means that they will have to participate in a relegation playoff, fighting for survival. Right now Xamax have 37 points in the league and a record of 9 wins, 10 draws and 16 losses. It was not really the best season for them, but they still have some hopes to keep their place in the elite division.
In their last five games in the league Xamax won once, made two draws and suffered two losses. The club’s last game against Lugano ended with a 1-1 draw. Mike Gomes scored himself an own goal, but Charles Pickel equalised for the hosts and won them a point.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Super League clash between Basel and Xamax. For both teams this game does not mean almost anything, as they know where exactly in the standings they are going to finish.
