CSKA – Basel

CSKA Moscow hosts Basel in a match from Group A of the UEFA Champions League.These two teams have the same amount of points after the first two rounds – per 3. They are in a good position to chase something more in this group, but a lot of this depends on what they are going to do against each other in the coming two matches. The first one is in Moscow, so it’s CSKA’s big chance to enjoy an important second win in the group. But Basel won’t give up without a fight, that’s for sure.CSKA started their participation in the group with a terrific away win against Benfica in Lisboa, but after that, they were beaten by the big favorite in the group Manchester United. We can say that their win in Lisboa was a great achievement from a strategical point of view, but now they must add some more points to their tally if they want to progress to the next stage of the competition.As for Basel, the Swiss champion enjoyed one if its finest European nights just two weeks ago. Basel achieved a historical 5-0 win over Benfica – one of the greatest clubs in Europe. This was one of Basel’s best wins in their history, so now they are to continue in this way against CSKA as well.But it won’t be easy for the Swiss team. It’s always difficult to play on Russian soil because the distance of the trip is huge and the weather is usually very cold. Basel must adapt to this situation and use their chances if they want to win in Moscow. Although, maybe even a point in this match would be a good result for them from a strategical point of view.These two teams will fight for progression, that’s without a doubt. But who will take advantage?
