Thun will host Basel in 18th round of Swiss Super league. Thin is coming to this match after victory over Sion in previous round on the road 1:2, while before that they suffered two consecutive defeats against Luzern and St. Gallen. Thun is currently at 7th position at the table with 20 points from previous 17 rounds. Previous season Thun ended at 4th position at the table and they were playing in Europa league qualifications but in final round were eliminated by Sparta Prague. They must improve their performances especially defense line since so far they conceded 29 goals while scored 24. In this campaign Thun suffered 9 defeats, got two draws and celebrated six times, they must improve their performances at home since so far they celebrated only 3 times at home. Thun managed to advance into quarter finals of the Cup by eliminating lower ranked Wettswil-Bonesten. In last 13 matches Thun celebrated only once over Basel about three years ago, while suffered six defeats and got six draws. Thun must try to improve their form to repeat last seasons results but it will be very hard for them to achieve positive outcome in this match against probably strongest team in Switzerland.
Basel on the other side continues with their domination in Swiss Super league, they are at first position with 40 points, 7 points more than second Grasshoppers. They are also most effective team in league with 41 goal scored while conceded 20 and also have one of the best defenses in league. After won the title in previous season Basel were playing in Champions league qualifications but they were eliminated in final round by Maccabi Tel Aviv and now are participating into Europa league. After five rounds they are at first position in group I of Europa league group stage and with ten points from five rounds already won their placement into knockout stage. Basel suffered only four defeats so far in this season, three in league and one in Europa league. They celebrated over Luzern at home in previous round of Super league and for sure will give their best to continue with good results to maintain their distance between second placed Grasshoppers. Basel is playing great football in this season and for sure will continue with their offensive tactics, they also reached quarter finals by eliminating lower ranked Muttenz 1:5 on the road.
Thun must show really outstanding performances to achieve positive outcome, they must try to improve their defense and save their net, that was their main problem so far in this campaign, while Basel is playing with great attacking football and domination in Switzerland, and for sure will go for a victory, I expect open match and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
