Thun hosts Basel in round 35 of the Swiss Super League. The match will be played on Friday, July 31st at Stockhorn Arena (Thun)
Thun has risen well lately, and the situation with non-relegation has become much better. Let’s note that the team has not lost for five rounds in a row, and it feels great on its artificial field of Stockhorn. Moreover, Basel will not have an optimal lineup - Koller will field those who have received little practice during the season, and not everything is so good with injuries, so it is not surprising that we see the hosts as moderate favorites. The Reds play attack first, so they should breach Basel’s defense and gain at least a draw.

Basel played a fun match against Lugano (a 4:4 home draw) and lost chances of qualifying for the Champions League almost one hundred percent. Koller's men will most finish on the third line, so they can relax and play football two rounds before the end. In addition, Basel does not defend in the best way and plays away, so it will be difficult for Koller's team to win in Thun.
This season, the teams crossed each other three times, and they have parity. Basel won 3-2 on the opponent's field almost a year ago, then there was a draw, and then Thun took revenge and defeated Basel at Saint Jacob (1-0). Now Thun is in excellent condition and attacks well at home. It won in five home matches in a row, leaving both Young Boys and St. Gallen without points. Therefore, I think the hosts will at least not lose, and given the visitors’ problems in defense, we will probably see a scoring match.
Prediction for the match: Thun to win with +0.5 handicap and Over 2.5 goals scored
