Lausanne Sport – Basel
Lausanne Sport hosts Basel in a match from the 17th round of the Swiss Super League. The game is going to be played at the Stade Olympique de la Pontaise in the city of Lausanne.
Lausanne Sport are currently 6th in the Super League standings with a 19 points won and a record of five wins, four draws and seven defeats. In their last five matches Lausanne Sport enjoyed two wins and suffered three defeats. In the last round Lausanne Sport were beaten with 0-2 during the visit to Zurich.
The champions Basel are currently second in the league standings, surprising for many. Basel have 29 points and a record of eight wins, five draws and three defeats. Basel are currently trailing on 7 points behind the leader Young Boys, so the title race is going to be exciting until the end of the season, we suppose. This is not an ordinary situation for Basel, who got used to dominate the league with an ease in the recent years. But now they are going to have a serious test, because Young Boys look like a real contender for the gold medals.
Basel’s form in the Super League is surprising, because the team is peforming in a decent way in the Champions League. It’s clear that Basel are not worse compared to last season, but for some reason they are having some problems right now. Their problem is that they are running out of time for fixing what’s wrong. If they don’t find a solution very soon, Young Boys could use their chance and shock everyone with winning the league.
For Basel it’s a must win game, even away from home. Lausanne Sport are not a team on their level, so Basel are the obvious favourite here. Can they find the consistency they aim for?
