By on February 18, 2015
One of the most balanced games of the last 16 round in UCL this year will put face to face FC Basel and FC Porto. These two teams will face each other today from 19:45, UK Time, and the odds are also very balanced.
FC Basel have the advantage of the own ground, but they still have the second chance at bookmakers. The swiss side is coming after only two competitive games in 2015, and this could be a problem for them. They ticked a victory, 4-2 aganist Grasshoppers ten days ago, and a draw, 1-1 with Sion last weekend in front of their own fans. Basel’s last home defeat took place in November 26th, 0-1 against Real Madrid in UCL group stage.
FC Porto are coming after a good run, proof that they won their last four games in all competition, scoring 12 goals and conceding only one. Porto played 16 away games this season in all competition and they lost only once, 0-1 against Maritimo three weeks ago in Primeira Liga. They won seven points in their three trips of the UCL group stage.

FC Basel (4-3-3): Vaclik – Xhaka, Suchy, Samuel, Safari – Zuffi, Frei, Elneny – Gonzalez, Streller, Gashi.
