Match status: 2019-20 Europa League Group Stages
Venue: St. Jakob-Park (Basel)

Led by the inimitable José Bordalás, a former forward at the Spanish outfit, they've gone past a club fighting for mid-table obscurity and relegation battles to an Europa League crown challenger.

They are now poised to take a trip to the Swiss side, Basel, who currently top their Group. Getafe are hot on the heels of the Swiss champions, with just a point less in 6 points.

For Basel, it's been an exceptional Europa league campaign. They've bagged seven points from three games so far and are yet to taste defeat in their Group games.

This enthralling game between both sides could potentially decide who tops the group going into the knockout rounds. 

FC Basel v Getafe Team News

Basel play hosts to Getafe on Thursday and will be looking to continue their good run of form in Europe. Two wins and one draw is how they've fared in Europe so far.

Offensively, the Swiss hosts have been exceptional, scoring eight goals in that time. Defensively, they've certainly left the mark, having kept a couple of clean sheets.

On the face of it, all seems well. However, some of their performances have left plenty to be desired, most notably from the defensive point of view.

They looked exceptional when they trashed Krasnodar on match-day one, scoring five goals in that time, despite missing a couple of chances. However, that result didn't quite reflect what happened on the field of play. They had a lot of defensive loopholes but were saved by the fact that Krasnodar were weak on the offensive themselves. A 2-2 draw followed that game in Turkey, where they once again shone going forward but failed to contain their opponents.

The Swiss giants will be looking to put their weekend disappointment behind them when they take on Getafe. They dropped points when they took on second to the bottom team, Neuchatel Xamax, in spite of their domination for most parts of the game.

While Basel have been incredible in attack and defended poorly in front of their home crowd, it's been a different ball game entirely for Getafe. They've kept a low-key status, scoring one goal and conceding just once at home.

On the road, they've delivered quite a pleasing attacking effort, and this should be no different. However, they haven't maintained a compact back that could keep out Basel.

For many punters, Getafe had been the logical choice to top the group. However, their unexpected loss at home to this same opponent has changed the group's narrative. The Spanish outfit have to snatch some points off the Swiss giants and possibly get a win if they are to make sure of their qualification.

If Krasnodar take maximum points against Trabzonspor and Getafe lose to Basel, they could potentially equal Getafe's points on the log with only two games left to play. Hence, Getafe will be desperate to pick up at least a point from this encounter.

Injured or Suspended Players:

FC Basel: Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Zdravko Kuzmanovic, Ramires, Kevin Bua, Valentin Stocker.

Getafe: Bruno González, Leandro Cabrera, Amath Ndiaye, Markel Bergara, Filip Manojlovic.

FC Basel vs Getafe Predictions

Getafe will be desperate to pick up points against their opponents when they take a trip to Switzerland. Although they will be willing to unleash their attacking force on the hosts, they will be doing that with caution.

Basel, on the other hand, are expected to take advantage of their desperation, doing so with careless abandon and capitalizing on their visitor's mistakes at the back when it matters most. Most punters will tip the Swiss giants to grab another narrow win over their opponents, say 2-1.
